When first responder Robert came to the scene, he was quick to help others as he had done before as a police detective. He had been in many dangerous situations and came out unharmed. So after the towers fell, it wasn’t surprising that Robert went back to work.
But something he didn’t count on was being sick. Robert eventually developed cancer. The one thing Robert didn’t do is seek litigation with other people in regards to the World Trade Center tragedy. However, over the years Robert became sicker and was constantly told that his illness was a result of the disaster. Adding on to that, Robert became a father of 3 children something he didn’t have to think about right after the tragedy. So when President Obama signed the Zadroga Act – a bill in which first responders were allowed to claim compensation and public services from the disaster – Robert contemplated whether or not to file. But his 3 children and their future became his only priority and he knew he had to provide for their future.
