To file a claim for military base toxic exposure, you must have been stationed on a military base with known contamination for at least one year and have a qualifying diagnosis. Even so, not all veterans who meet these eligibility criteria are entitled to compensation.

Veterans must have spent at least one year on military bases to be eligible for compensation

Military bases eligibility criteria

During the last century, military bases would abound in toxic chemicals, which greatly endangered the health of service members who had to spend time on these installations. It should be no surprise that many veterans now struggle with potentially fatal diseases such as cancer.

While money cannot restore health, obtaining financial compensation is important if you are in this situation, as it can help you afford better healthcare and treatment. The following are the eligibility criteria veterans who were stationed at contaminated military bases have to meet if they want to file a toxic exposure claim:

  • they must have been discharged from the military other than dishonorably
  • they must have spent at least one year at one or multiple contaminated military bases
  • they must have a diagnosis that has a strong connection with toxic exposure

Nevertheless, even if veterans meet these requirements, not all will be eligible to file a military base toxic exposure claim. To determine whether you are entitled to compensation, our attorneys will need your military and medical records. Only after they carefully evaluate these documents will they be able to tell you with certainty if you can file a claim.
