How do I file for VA benefits after getting sick on a contaminated military base?

Because the process of filing a VA claim is complex and tedious, it is best to have a knowledgeable and experienced attorney help you.

Filing on your own is possible, but you risk your claim being rejected or receiving a significantly lower sum of money than you are entitled to.

Veterans with cancer are usually deemed 100% disabled, and they can obtain the maximum VA disability compensation.

These are the necessary documents to file a VA disability claim if you were exposed to toxic agents on military bases:

  • DD214 or other separation documents
  • service treatment records
  • any medical evidence concerning your illness or injury

You will have to retrieve your military records yourself and subsequently provide these documents to our attorneys so that they can evaluate your case. Still, your medical records are also very important, as they will help our legal team estimate what your disability rating will be if you are eligible to file a VA disability claim. It is important to know that, as a veteran, you can request compensation by filing a military base claim but also by filing a VA disability claim. Our skilled attorneys can help you file both, as we have been assisting veterans for over three decades.
