A minimum number of hours present at 9/11 for cancer to develop is four hours
The immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks means that a claimant was in the exposure zone during the period from September 11, 2001, through May 30, 2002. The sufficiency of exposure depends on individual circumstances, such as location, nature of work, date of arrival on site, and the duration of presence. However, the minimum number of hours present for cancer to develop is four hours or being directly in the dust cloud for any length of time.
Establishing that you were in the geographic area of the World Trade Center attacks, known as the 9/11 Exposure Zone, is the first requirement to qualify for compensation from the Victim Compensation Fund. Responders or survivors of the 9/11 attacks who spent time in the Exposure Zone on September 11, 2001, or in the eight months that followed might be entitled to financial compensation.
