Working with the 911 VCF since day 1.

SPBMC has been working with the Victim Compensation Fund since its inception in 2002. We were also key players in the post-9/11 federal lawsuits against the City of New York and were instrumental in the initial passage and reauthorization of the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, which extended benefits to victims of 9/11-related illnesses. This knowledge and experience enabled us to achieve the highest WTC Victim Compensation Fund award to date.

Our dedicated team of attorneys is committed to helping you through the VCF process from beginning to end. We advise you every step of the way, so you get what you are entitled to under the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund.

We provide legal representation to help you maximize recovery under the 911 VCF.

It is not easy for people to make claims directly to the 911 VCF. The process of filing a claim requires careful documentation of injuries and proof of eligibility. Having a lawyer gives you distinct advantages in submitting, tracking, evaluating and winning your claim. SPBMC has the in-depth knowledge you need in examining and pursuing your claim under the 9/11 compensation fund.

Our firm has recovered more than One Billion Dollars for its 9/11 clients.

On March 13, 2017, the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) issued its Fifth Annual Status Report and its findings confirm the great success Sullivan Papain Block McGrath & Cannavo P.C. (SPBMC) has achieved in maximizing awards for its clients. Since January 2013, when the first 911 vcf awards were issued under the Zadroga Act, through December 31, 2016:

  • SPBMC obtained 1,082 awards totaling $508 Million, an average of $469,000 per award.
  • SPBMC achieved the highest award – $4.133 Million – for a client whose cancer was linked to his exposure to toxins at the WTC Disaster Site.
  • SPBMC’s average award was approximately 3 times greater than the average of all other VCF awards.

SPBMC’s success does not stop there. In just the first six months of 2017, the firm has obtained an additional 243 World Trade Center (WTC) Victim Compensation Fund awards totaling more than $120 Million.

SPBMC has also been very successful in pursuing supplemental awards for clients who, after receiving an award, were diagnosed with a new 9/11 illness or were subsequently found to be disabled by reason of their 9/11 illnesses.

Our firm has handled more than 2,000 claims under the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund.

If you were a 9/11 first responder, or lived or worked in Manhattan below Canal Street between September 11, 2001 and May 31, 2002, and are suffering from a cancer or respiratory illness, you may be entitled to compensation from the VCF.
