9/11 Rescue Workers At Increased Risk for Cancer
Today’s post comes to us from our colleague Jon Gelman of New Jersey. If you think you have a Zadroga Bill or other 9/11-related claim, please contact our office for a free consultation.
Rescue and recovery workers at the 9/11 World Trade Center terrorist attack site have been reported to be at greater risk of certain cancers. The study followed a group of workers who have been exposed to toxic dust and fumes following the attack in New York City.
The study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association reported an increased incidence of prostate and thyroid cancers, plus multiple myeloma.
Benefits are available under The Zadroga 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund Benefit Program. The law was enacted by the US Congress and signed into law by President Barack Obama about 3 years ago.
