September 11th Responders still hurting
Here is a link to a recent article that tells us that many who responded with courage and dedication have not been compensated for efforts once they developed health problems.

I expect it is relatively simple to defend claims made because the medical evidence can be subject to different interpretations. We all assume that injuries and disabilities will be taken care of but many cases are contested. The contest is often because insurers can question the cause of the injury or disability. Yet it is a shame when we see this happen to those who were involved with 9-11 efforts at the site of an American Tragedy. Click here for the article.
