Due to our caseload, you should be patient if you filed a claim with our law firm, as it might take a few months to a few years until you receive financial compensation. There are many other factors that determine how long you have to wait until resolution, including:

  • whether you have a malignant or benign disease
  • how strong the association between disease and exposure is
  • the number of liable parties your claim is filed with
  • how big is our caseload when you contact us
  • the number of military bases you were stationed at
