Wishing All Of Our Clients a Meaningful Easter

During the current health crisis and in these times of uncertainty, we would like to wish you a meaningful Easter. While social distancing may construct physical barriers between us and our loved ones, we hope that you are able to find ways to overcome these obstacles and connect with friends and family in other ways.

We assure you that the Victim Compensation Fund is still open and resolving claims. And, the attorneys and staff at our firm continue working for you, albeit from our homes. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if there is anything at all that we can do for you and your family.

Barasch & McGarry is doing what we can to help responders during this health crisis. The FDNY reports that 911 calls for cardiac arrests have increased from an average of 60 per day to over 300 per day. All firefighters, especially those in the Engine Companies, as well as EMT’s and paramedics, deserve enormous appreciation for their selflessness during this time in particular. This week, our firm will be donating 15,000 N-95 safety masks to FDNY firefighters, EMT’s, and paramedics. We have also been buying meals for our amazing health care workers. And, as soon as more masks become available, we will donate masks to other responders.

We hope that you are able to find peace during these trying times.

  • Deadline Extended to Register for Compensation

    There is still time to apply for significant compensation if you have been diagnosed with any of the 68 cancers that doctors at the WTC Health Program (WTCHP) have linked to the WTC toxic dust. The deadline to apply to the Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) is two years from the date that a cancer has been certified by the WTC Health Program — or any other governmental agency. The two-year period to register doesn’t start on the day of a cancer diagnosis. Rather, it starts only when a cancer survivor is made aware their cancer was linked to exposure to the WTC toxins.

    For those who died from their WTC-linked cancers, the two-year period for their family to register starts on the day of the death of the WTC victim.

    Register For Compensation

Please help spread the word about the strict two-year deadline to register a claim

Many people have tried to complete the VCF application on their own, only to learn that it requires answers to hundreds of questions and many documents to download. It would be our pleasure to help you complete the process in order to ensure that you receive the compensation that you are entitled to. Please call us for a free consultation.
