NY Workers’ Compensation Alliance Remembers 9/11 Victims on Eighth Anniversary
On the eighth anniversary of the World Trade Center tragedy, all the attorneys of the New York Workers’ Compensation Alliance pay their respects to the victims and families impacted by 9/11. We have all represented these victims before the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board these past eight years, often in a pro bono capacity, and we pledge to continue to serve future claimants in the inevitable serious claims yet to come.
In addition, it is appropriate to recognize and applaud all the employees of the New York State Workers’ Compensation Board, whose swift and compassionate actions to process claims following the tragedy helped thousands of families cope with their loss. No workers’ compensation system in the United states, before or after 9/11, had a more challenging crisis.
With the willing cooperation of all stakeholders in the system, the employees of the WCB rose to the occasion to meet the needs of their fellow citizens. In many respects, this was the NY Workers’ Compensation Board’s shining moment and the Board continues today to resolve 9/11 claims in a quick and compassionate manner.
Please join the WCA today in taking a moment to remember all those impacted by 9/11 .
