Over 75 industries exposed workers and veterans to high concentrations of asbestos
The use of asbestos in various industries was prevalent before the mid-1980s, although the dangers of asbestos were carefully covered up by many companies that were manufacturing or using asbestos products. Between the 1920s and the 1980s, people who worked in an industrial workplace, construction, maintenance, heavy industry, and military veterans were in contact with high concentrations of asbestos.
Years later many of these victims have developed serious, often fatal diseases, along with their family members who also got sick, from the asbestos fibers that their spouses were bringing home on their clothes and hair, giving way to secondary asbestos exposure.
Veterans who are now suffering from cancer or pulmonary disease can receive compensation
If you were exposed to asbestos in the military, you can file a claim for financial compensation with both asbestos trust funds and the VA. Oftentimes, veterans who are victims of asbestos exposure refuse to seek financial compensation during their lifetime or they pass away before finding out whether their claim was approved.
In such circumstances, family members can step in and can either file a claim with asbestos trust funds to recover compensation on behalf of their loved one or, if the injured person had already filed a claim before their death, they can step in to complete the process. Regardless of your situation, a lawyer specializing in asbestos litigation will efficiently help you pursue financial compensation.
Since we know how overwhelming and exhausting struggling with a serious disease can be, our legal team will go to great lengths to ease the process for you and guide you through every step. The only documents we will need from you as a veteran with a history of asbestos exposure and a related diagnosis are your military records, which you must retrieve, and your medical records.
