The 9/11 lawyers of Pitta & Baione LLP have now recovered more than $300 million for clients through the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund (VCF). For years, Pitta & Baione LLP has continued to meet the needs of survivors, responders, and family members of deceased victims who suffered the consequences of exposure to 9/11 toxins.

Pitta & Baione LLP not only provides legal representation to clients and navigates them through a complicated process, but this 9/11 law firm also contributes to changes that help ensure that federal 9/11 programs remain funded for decades to come. At Pitta & Baione LLP, our 9/11 lawyers understand that no amount of compensation will turn back time to undo the damage that resulted from the horrific 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Federally-funded 9/11 programs are available, however, to help clients with medical monitoring, medical treatment, and compensation for damages they have suffered. Through the Zadroga Act, our team of 9/11 lawyers help clients apply for benefits through the World Trade Center Health Program (WTCHP), as well as help clients file claims with the VCF.

A 9/11 Lawyer Can Help Maximize a VCF Award

Because every client’s case is unique, the amount of compensation offered to a qualifying 9/11 survivor, responder – or the legal representative of a deceased victim – will vary based on the type and severity of the injuries. To ensure that every client receives the compensation that  he or she deserves, based on each unique situation, it is important to work with a 9/11 lawyer who can take the necessary steps to push for a fair VCF award.

While many individuals file VCF claims without the help of a 9/11 lawyer, there is the risk that their claims may be rejected or the amounts of compensation offered might be well below what is deserved. The VCF claims process can be complicated and any misstep – no matter how slight – can lead to the denial of a VCF claim and/or significant delays (years long) in processing. Moreover, without the help of a lawyer, claimants may inadvertently omit important information or neglect to include critical medical records which document a 9/11 condition and can result in a decreased award. In these cases, individuals without attorneys may never know if they received the maximum award available to them under the law.

The 9/11 lawyers of Pitta & Baione LLP leave no stone unturned in helping clients with the navigation of the 9/11 VCF claims process. We not only ensure that the administrative aspect of the claims process goes smoothly, but we also assist clients in maximizing the value of their VCF claims. In short, we make sure that all pertinent medical records and other documentation is provided to the VCF, so that any offer of compensation will be based on a complete record.

Leaving out just one record or document can result in the denial of a VCF claim or a much lower award of compensation than expected.
