September 11, 2001 changed the face of U.S. history. While Americans and other people from around the world watched on television, the iconic World Trade Center towers were attacked by two hijacked planes, burned, then crumbled to the ground.
Thousands were trapped, dying, and in desperate need, and all 50 states responded by sending people to help. We relied on these "first responders" – firefighters, health professionals, police officers, machine operators, construction workers, and more – to put out fires, treat the wounded, respond to emergencies, dig through the rubble, and organize aid.
If you responded to the call for aid following the September 11 tragedy, you were likely exposed to dangerous toxins that may have resulted in asthma, sleep apnea, respiratory injuries, or cancer. Also, the experience itself may have caused mental health conditions like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or anxiety.
The James Zadroga 9/11 Healthcare and Compensation Act was created to help workers and responders with medical bills and illnesses that were caused by being involved with 9/11 recovery. Congress approved the bill on December 22, 2010, and President Obama enacted it on January 2, 2011.
If you were a 9/11 responder or lived near 'Ground Zero' following the attacks, you may qualify for compensation for your illnesses or disorders through the Zadroga Act.
