Over 75 industries exposed workers and veterans to high concentrations of asbestos
Between 1920-1980 people who worked in an industrial workplace and in the military were in contact with 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, leading to secondary exposure.
Veterans who are now suffering from asbestos-related cancer 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. They will serve as a starting point for our skilled attorneys to evaluate your case and will also accompany your claim as evidence. It is important to know that our law firm operates on a contingency fee basis, which means that you do not owe us any money until we obtain financial compensation for you.
