What documentation must family members who lived at a military base submit?

The family members of veterans who lived at contaminated military bases might also be eligible for compensation if they develop one of the qualifying health problems. Some of the documents they have to provide our experienced attorneys with are evidence of their stay at the military base and their medical records.

Many family members spent time at military bases with known toxic contamination during the last century, which means they were also exposed to harmful chemicals or substances. Toxic exposure, even if it might have occurred to a less severe degree than in the case of veterans, can result in terrible health problems.

If you are the family member of a veteran who lived at a military base and now struggle with a disease, you will have to provide our skilled attorneys with the following documents, as applicable:

  • birth certificate
  • marriage license
  • adoption papers

To have your case thoroughly reviewed, we will also request your medical records, which must state your diagnosis and how it relates to toxic exposure. If you have a qualifying disease or health issue, you might be entitled to financial compensation. Whether you are the spouse or the child of a veteran who lived at a military base when it was contaminated, we encourage you to give our legal team a call if you now struggle with a disease.
