Turley Redmond, Rosasco & Rosasco, LLP would like to thank all our patient and loyal clients who were unable to contact us for the past few days due to Hurricane Sandy.
In addition, my previously scheduled NY Workers’ Compensation Seminar for fellow attorneys tommorow in Melville has been cancelled and will be rescheduled for a later date.

After six years of representing my Second Circuit colleagues on the National Organization of Social Security Claimant Representatives (NOSSCR) Board of Directors, I am stepping down to take on new challenges – including teaching a Social Security Disability Law course at a local law school.

As I have done in the past, I’ll be presenting a lecture to “New Practitioners” in the Social Security Disability Law field. I have always believed that in order to be able to teach a subject, you must know it cold. It is no different with Social Security Disability Law, and teaching new Social Security Lawyers is both challenging and invigorating.
hopefully I’ll need more brain and less brawn at the upcoming full day Social Security Disability Boot Camp Seminar where I will be presenting on April 18, 2012. I will be covering topics such as the difference between SSDI vs. SSI, Social Security Disability appeals, ALJ hearings and mental impairments, such as depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
“Here we are almost one year after President Obama signed the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010 into law, and all the “pre-season” hard work of the Special Master and the Department of Justice brought us to the real “Opening Day” of the Victim Compensation Fund,” Mr. Rosasco said. “Now the long season of individual compensation claim evaluations and potential hearings will begin.” “A roadblock that claimants faced in order to get their fair share of the $2.775 billion Victim Compensation Fund has finally been lifted,” Mr. Rosasco’s partner, Daniel J. Hansen said. “Thanks to the Special Master, claimants will have ample time to fill out the forms. Now that all the formalities have been taken care of, these heroes who unknowingly worked in the face of danger are able to receive the compensation they justly deserve.”

Ms. Fortino interviewed my good friend and 9/11 survivor, Jack Delaney. Jack was Director of Emergency Medical Services for New York Presbyterian Hospital and responded so quickly to the World Trade Center that he was caught in the rubble when the buildings collapsed. (Read Jack Delaney’s incredible story of 9/11 and it’s aftermath here).
People like Jack, who will never tell you the full extent of their injuries, are the ones most deserving of benefits under the Zadroga Act, and the ones we will be fighting for.
Troy Rosasco was recently profiled by the Long Island Business News in an article entitled “The Good Fight”.

9 11 Compensation Fund Lawyer Troy Rosasco was interviewed last week by the Long Island Business News (LIBN) about the new draft Zadroga Act rules released by Victim Compensation Fund Special Master Sheila Birnbaum. The article and Rosasco’s comments on the Zadroga 9 11 Law draft regulations are here. Stay tuned for our report from the “Town Hall” meeting this Wednesday night, June 29th, with Victim Compensation Fund Special Master Sheila Birnbaum.

It was an honor to have been asked to give a Continuing Legal Education Course on the new Zadroga 9/11 Act to the Justices and attorneys of the New York State Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Second Department in Brooklyn recently. Here is a copy of my Zadroga 9/11 Act Power Point Presentation to the Supreme Court.
Like previous lectures I have given on Zadroga 9/11 Act claims, I covered topics such as: are volunteers, construction workers, cleaners and other workers covered under the Zadroga Act ?; what toxic chemicals were found at Ground Zero and are they cancer causing ? and what are the deadlines for filing Zadroga Victim Compensation Fund claims ? can you have a Zadroga Act compensation claim if you already received money from another 9/11 lawsuit ?;
I recently did a Disability Claim video CLE for Lawline, the nation’s top online CLE producer, The CLE was entitled “Disability Insurance Claims Primer: The Plaintiff’s Perspective”, focused on both the law and practical pointers involving private disability income insurance policies for professionals and employer based long term disability claims governed by ERISA. Thankfully, it is getting top reviews from lawyers around the country.

I will be giving my annual New York Workers’ Compensation Law lecture tomorrow night at St. John’s Law School at the invitation of Prof. David Gregory, one of the country’s preeminent labor law experts. This year my Workers’ Compensation Law lecture takes on particular significance as the this week marks the 100th anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire tragedy in lower Manhattan, which was the seminal event leading to the establishment of workers’ compensation laws throughout the country. 146 workers lost their lives either in the fire or jumping from the building. In a eeirly sad coincidence, it just so happens that this year is also the 10th anniversary of the World Trade Center Disaster. It took 90 years for the WTC disaster to eclipse the Triangle Factory Fire as New York’s most deadly workplace accident.
We are still filing ongoing workers’ compensation claims for 9/11 victims, survivors and first responders. In addition, this year has brought the passage of the new James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010. I will be sharing with the students facts about the new Zadroga 9/11 Act, how to file a Zadroga Act claim, and what medical conditions are covered under the Zadroga Act.
Last night I had the pleasure of giving Zadroga Claim Information to 60+ volunteer firefighters at the East Islip Volunteer Fire Department. Many of these brave volunteers immediately responded to the World Trade Center without any prompting from their department or other emergency agencies. They simply saw a tragedy unfolding, and like the professionals they are, put themselves in harms way. True heroes. Feel free to call me at 1-877-693-2529 ext. 123 to discuss a possible Zadroga 9/11 Claim.

Carrie asked me to help with a question from a reader about whether a 74 year old could work and collect Social Security Retirement benefits also. The reader seemed to believe that the hard working septuagenarian was somehow cheating the US government!
See my detailed response about Social Security in Newsday here and here, and keep reading Carrie’s column. It was refreshing to get my mind off Zadroga Act Claims for a few moments.
law firms of Turley, Redmond, Rosasco & Rosasco, LLP, Daniel J. Hansen, Esq. and Chet Lukaszewski, PC have launched an informational website for 9/11 heroes and victims simply named Zadroga 9/11 Claims Info.
