Responders Exposed To Toxic Dust In Wake Of 9/11 Attacks

POSTED: Friday, November 19, 2010
NEW YORK -- More than 10,000 people have joined a legal settlement that will pay hundreds of millions of dollars to ground zero workers exposed to toxic World Trade Center dust.

The near-universal acceptance of the deal was announced by a court Friday.

It will mean an end to most litigation over New York City's failure to provide protective equipment to construction workers, police and firefighters who cleared rubble.

This is good news, these settlements after all these years will certainly help those who have suffered both physically and financially.

They deserve every penny they get for risking their lives, many will have repercussions for the rest of their life and not able to work or support their families.

Agree, this is what is sick about these class action suits, it is always the attorneys who make out like bandits, I will be interested to see just how much the victims receive in the end.

9/11 Health Settlement Accepted by Workers

More than 95% of Ground Zero workers agreed to accept a settlement of long-running litigation over respiratory diseases and other injuries suffered as a result of recovery operations following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack.

A report released Friday indicated that 95.1% of 10,563 eligible plaintiffs agreed to participate in the settlement, which could be as much as $815 million. More than 98% of the sickest workers, known as Tier 4, agreed to accept the deal.
