Description

Though the memories of that tragic day remain fixed in our minds, our judicial system’s efforts to properly compensate the victims of 9/11 are an ongoing process. This riveting CLE course, presented by 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund attorney Troy G. Rosasco, will review the most recent updates to the James Zadroga 9/11 Health & Compensation Act. The course will include the most recent updates to the Act, including the appointment of new “Special Master” Sheila Birnbaum and new Zadroga Act draft regulations of June 2011. Beginning with President Obama’s signing the act into law, the course will chart each step in its development and will also discuss claimant eligibility, the definition and applicability of the term “crash site,” illness coverage, available damages and the statutory cap on attorney fees. Copies of the new draft regulations and other materials supplied by the Special Master will be distributed. Whether you’re a torts attorney, workers’ compensation or disability attorney or simply know someone suffering from Ground Zero toxic exposure, this course should not be missed.
