Ground Zero Lawyer Lectures on Zadroga 9/11 Act to New York Supreme Court

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. The two hour presentation was given in the same courtroom where I was sworn in as an attorney over 20 years ago – and it hasn’t changed a bit!  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: who is a first responder under the Zadroga Act ?; are volunteers, construction workers, cleaners and other workers covered under the Zadroga Act ?; what medical conditions are covered under the Zadroga Act ?; what medical and compensation benefits are available under the Zadroga Act ?;   can you have a Zadroga Act compensation claim if you already received money from another 9/11 lawsuit ?; what toxic chemicals were found at Ground Zero and are they cancer causing ?;  who is the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund Special Master ?; what is the definition of the "crash site" under the Zadroga Act ?; what cancer conditions are covered under the Zadroga Act ?;  and what are the deadlines for filing Zadroga Victim Compensation Fund claims ?.

Once again, I would like to thank the Supreme Court, Appellate Division for allowing me to present this progam.
