9/11 Workers Compensation Claims (WTC) Extended to September of 2018

The Law Offices of Joseph A. Romano, P.C. on Tuesday, April 18, 2017.

     On the anniversary of 9/11 the state of New York extended the deadline for workers compensation claims for people affected during the rescue and recovery efforts after the attacks on the World Trade Centers on September 11th, 2001. The extension allows new workers or volunteers that may have missed the previous September 2014 deadline to apply. The newest deadline is September 11, 2018.

     Generally, Workers’ Compensation cases must be filed within two years of the accident. However, due to the nature of the WTC exposure, symptoms may not arise until later in life. If you have started experiencing symptoms since the previous deadline or even if you’re not experiencing any symptoms to date; it’s important to file a claim while this extension window is open so you do not lose any potential benefits you deserve in the future. The form necessary to fill out is called a WTC-12 form and can be found HERE. The form will need to be notarized which can be done at most banking institutions or at any of our convenient locations.

     If you begin to experience symptoms of an illness you believe may be a result of your efforts working during the WTC terror attacks make sure you seek medical treatment immediately. If you’re interested in filing for 9/11 workers comp seek the assistance of an attorney. Beyond Workers’ Compensation, other benefits may apply.
