nyc-1668831_960_720Before you can determine how much money you or your loved one could possibly receive, it’s important to understand what is and is not included under economic loss. In general, economic loss covers compensation that the victim and/or his family would have been eligible for. This includes compensation for medical bills, out of pocket medical expenses and replacement services. Economic loss also covers the loss of earnings and other benefits of employment because of the death or disability caused by the accident.If your 9/11 related illness, injury or disability has rendered you unable to work, you may be eligible for compensation for both past work missed and future work that is no longer an option for you. Every case is different, but economic loss does include both prior and future losses for both your work and your household.
Filing a Claim
In order to receive any amount of compensation, you must file a claim. The claim submission process can be difficult, but the potential award is great. Once you have finalized your claim and submitted all documentation, you could potentially receive millions of dollars to accommodate for your losses.There is not just one set amount that is awarded, because the total depends on a variety of factors. For instance, the age, salary history, and future expected salary of the claimant will all be considered. Some people will require expensive medical care for the rest of their lives, while others might suffer more of a one-time impact from 9/11.

If injuries or illnesses sustained as a result of 9/11 are impacting your life, it’s time to get the compensation that you deserve.
