Is it easier to get compensation for malignant diseases than for benign diseases?

Yes, it is easier to obtain financial compensation if you are a veteran struggling with cancer, as malignant diseases have a considerably stronger association with toxic exposure on military bases. Still, this should not discourage veterans with benign diseases from contacting our law firm, as they might also be eligible to file a claim.

Exposure to PFOS and PFOA has a strong association with cancer

Malignant diseases compensation

Because the harmful chemicals present on military bases have a stronger association with malignant diseases, veterans with cancer have a less difficult time obtaining financial compensation.

For instance, PFOA exposure causes testicular cancer, whereas PFOS exposure is responsible for kidney cancer. Still, these substances also have a connection with benign diseases, but additional medical research is needed to find a definitive link.

Nonetheless, the fact that having cancer often makes veterans immediately eligible to file a military toxic exposure claim should not discourage those with less serious diseases from taking legal action, as they might also be entitled to compensation. The legal process will be significantly more complex in their case, but if they meet the eligibility criteria and we have enough proof, our attorneys might be able to file a claim for those veterans as well.
