PITTA & BAIONE LLP
Individuals who were present south of Houston Street in Lower Manhattan between September 11, 2001 and July 31, 2002 may be eligible for free healthcare and compensation. Families of deceased individuals may be entitled to compensation as well. The federal government recently provided fully funded compensation and extended the deadline through 2090, but other critical deadlines may apply. However, all who were present in Lower Manhattan between 9/11/01 and 7/31/02 should act fast to determine whether they may be eligible for compensation. Awards will continue to be paid on a first-come first-serve basis.

Caused by 911, common conditions include respiratory illness, lung disease, and cancer. Pitta & Baione LLP will represent anyone who was exposed to toxins after the 9/11 attacks- whether or not they are suffering from a condition- to protect their future rights. If you have suffered from a condition, find out if you are eligible for compensation.
The time is now to find out if you, a loved one, or a deceased loved one may be eligible. VCF and World Trade Center Health Program are not related to medicaid and private health insurance, both do not require proof of citizenship or income check. Pitta & Baione LLP will provide a free consultation to those who are concerned about how the compensation may impact other government benefits.
We are well aware of the unique challenges faced by our clients and we are committed to serving New York City’s 9/11 community.
Pitta & Baione LLP recently received reports that other law firms provided information about government benefits that may have confused some potential claimants. We are hoping to correct any misunderstandings. The Firm also recently received reports regarding confusion surrounding fee structure for 9/11 victim compensation claims: Pitta & Baione LLP only gets paid if and when a client receives compensation, the 10% fee is paid from the compensation award not from the client, and consultations are free.
我們律所最近聽到民眾的反映，其他律師事務所提供了一些讓他們感到困惑的有關政府福利的信息，而這些信息可能會對9/11賠償金造成誤解。我們希望能糾正這些誤解。 律所最近還收到了有關9/11受害人申請賠償費用結構混亂的報告，我們在這裡說明: 只有當客戶獲得賠償時，必達.白安9/ 11律師事務所才會收取律師費，而這10%的費用將從賠償金扣除，而不是客戶支付，並且諮詢是免費的。
