Filing a Claim Under the Thomas P. Canzanella 21st Century First Responders Protection Law
To file a claim under the Thomas P. Canzella law, you will first have to file a Formal Claim petition. In most cases, doing so is not particularly straightforward, which is why it is best to retain the services of an attorney who respects and values you and your family. Those who have been diagnosed with cancer or another work-related disease should retain counsel with experience handling these claims to help ensure that they receive the compensation they need. Keep in mind that time is of the essence, and there is a two-year statute of limitations when it comes to filing these claims. This means that you cannot wait any longer than two years from when you either knew or should have known that you developed a work-related medical condition.
