What is the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund?


What Our Clients Are Saying

Noah Kushlefsky worked tirelessly to ensure my case was accurate and fair. He kept me informed of the progress of my case and followed up to inform me of any updates. He had a true personal concern for my future and when I called with a question, he immediately knew the status of my case and answered all my concerns in a clear, concise manner. His knowledge and confidence took a complicated case and made it seem simple.


Thank you. You have been unbelievable to my family. I have no financial worries because of you.


On behalf of myself, wife and sons I would like to extend to you and your firm our deepest and warmest thanks for all the efforts and countless hours spent on behalf of my WTC-VCF claim. As a 23-year veteran street cop, I understand that there is a certain amount of passion and dedication that goes into your efforts. Those efforts show. Once again Mr. Kushlefsky and firm, THANK YOU VERY, VERY MUCH.


In 2001, after the September 11th terror attacks, Congress passed the Air Transportation Safety and System Stabilization Act which contained the original Victim Compensation Fund. The ATSSSA predicted that there could be thousands of lawsuits brought by victims’ families against the airlines whose planes were hijacked. There was a concern that so many lawsuits might jeopardize the financial stability of the airline industry. The VCF was designed to provide a reasonable alternative to lawsuits by offering compensation for losses like those available in litigation.

Attorney Noah Kushlefsky has advocated on behalf of 9/11 victims and their families for more than 15 years.

Subsequent to the terrorist attacks, he established himself as one of the nation's leading experts on the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund, representing more than 400 families of victims killed on September 11th. When the VCF reopened in 2010, he again became a leader among attorneys representing toxic exposure victims. He assisted in creating the methodology used by the VCF in calculating awards in rescue worker cases and has written and lectured extensively on the VCF. He was given the Advocate Award by the Fealgood Foundation for his work on behalf of responders, survivors and residents and has been endorsed by unions representing tens of thousands of New York City workers.
