Prioritizing veterans needing assistance with claims

Veterans who fought in rough conflicts such as World War II, the Vietnam War, and the Korean War, deserve our utmost respect and consideration, as they were exposed to unimaginable dangers while defending our country. Toxic exposure is only one of these dangers. Contrary to popular belief, toxic exposure in the military is not a thing of the past, as current members of the military are still in contact with hazardous agents. Asbestos is just one of the numerous toxic agents that veterans came in contact with while they were on active duty. Other harmful substances that are responsible today for the physical and emotional suffering of veterans are Agent Orange, PFOS and PFOA, mustard gas, and lewisite. If you are a veteran injured by a toxic agent, we strongly encourage you to seek our legal assistance and will help you file a claim with the VA to recover financial compensation. Furthermore, we will also file a personal injury claim if one or multiple companies are at fault for your suffering.

Veterans with any type of cancer may be eligible for compensation

If you are a veteran and struggle with cancer, you will most likely be eligible for compensation, as many of the toxic agents you were exposed to while on active duty are known carcinogens. Regardless of your cancer diagnosis, we strongly encourage you to reach out to our skilled legal team, who will help you obtain the maximum compensation you are entitled to. A very important aspect to keep in mind is the statute of limitations, which refers to the time frame within which you can file your claim. It depends on your state of residence and the majority of states have a statute of limitations of 2 or 3 years from the moment you receive your cancer diagnosis.

For this reason, seeking legal assistance as soon as you have your diagnosis is essential, as the process of preparing your claim for submission with the company/manufacturer is quite complex and tedious. Our attorneys have the necessary resources and knowledge to provide you with quality legal assistance if you are a victim of toxic exposure, as this is our main area of practice. Your claim will also be filed with the VA, additionally, so that you can also receive disability compensation. Moreover, our legal experts will conduct extensive research to find more evidence for your claim, as your toxic exposure claim must be accompanied by pertinent and solid proof.

We prioritize and expedite the claims for veterans and family members

Regardless of your diagnosis, we prioritize the claims filed by veterans, as we are aware that most of them are in need of financial compensation to pay their medical expenses and treatment. For this reason, your claim will be expedited so that you can receive the money you deserve within the shortest time possible. It is important to keep in mind that filing a claim is not the same thing as filing a lawsuit, as the process is less complex and will result in compensation significantly faster. Similarly, if you decide to file a claim, you will not be suing the government, but the companies responsible for manufacturing the defective products or the toxic agents you were exposed to.

Therefore, you should not think twice before filing a claim, as your involvement in the legal process will be minimal since we know that the majority of veterans are elderly and in great physical and emotional pain. We will make the legal process as easy as possible for you and go to great lengths to recover the maximum compensation you are entitled to from the liable parties. Furthermore, a family member can help you navigate it. By choosing to work with our legal team, which has the necessary evidence and resources to help you obtain the money you deserve, you are bound to receive the largest compensation available for your diagnosis. Lastly, it is important to know that we work on a contingency fee basis, which means that you are not required to pay us anything unless we recover compensation on your behalf. For more information, do not hesitate to contact us and we will promptly answer your questions.

We can file multiple claims if you are a veteran injury by toxic exposure

If you were exposed to multiple toxic agents while on active duty, such as asbestos, Agent Orange, mustard gas, and PFAS, we will file a claim with each company responsible for your suffering, as you are eligible for recovering the maximum compensation available for all your diagnoses. It is not unusual for veterans to have been exposed to more than one toxic agent, which is why filing multiple claims is completely legal and possible. If you struggle with more than one disease or condition, the VA will also provide you with a larger sum of money in the form of disability compensation.

In the unfortunate event that you are really ill, a family member can step in and help you with the legal process, which will make things much easier for you. Eventually, several months after claim submission, you will receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to from all the liable parties. For additional information, please feel free to contact us and we will thoroughly evaluate your situation.

Family members of deceased veterans are also eligible for compensation

In the unfortunate event that you had a veteran as a family member who passed away due to a disease caused by toxic exposure and who had not filed a claim during their lifetime, we can still help you recover financial compensation on their behalf. Regardless of the dangerous substance that caused their disease, our legal experts will conduct in-depth research to find solid evidence to support your claim. While very complex and tedious, the legal process will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to send your attorney the military and medical records of your deceased loved one. However, it is important to keep in mind that wrongful death cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years from the moment of death, which is why you should contact our law firm as soon as you receive the bad news for a positive outcome with regard to financial compensation.

The importance of seeking legal assistance as soon as you discover your diagnosis

Since the majority of toxic exposure cases have a statute of limitations, it is essential to seek compensation as soon as you receive your diagnosis or, in the case of family members who lost a veteran, as soon as they receive the bad news. While the average statute of limitations for living veterans is 3 years and for the surviving family members 2 years, it can greatly vary from state to state. This is why it is very important to reach out to a law firm that specializes in toxic exposure cases as soon as possible. Your involvement in the legal process will be minimal, which means that, as a veteran, you will have time to focus on your health and treatment and, as the surviving family member of one, you will have time to mourn your loss.

We only charge a contingency fee when we successfully recover the money you are entitled to. This contingency fee is 40%. However, because we will obtain the maximum compensation available for you, you will still have plenty of money to help you afford superior healthcare and treatment.

The families of veterans with a history of toxic exposure who lost their lives to coronavirus are still eligible for compensation

As the coronavirus pandemic is spreading, the elderly are one of the most vulnerable demographic. Since the majority of veterans are elderly, with a median age of 58, they are significantly more susceptible to contracting the new virus than the general population. In the regrettable event, you have a veteran in your family who was struggling with a disease caused by toxic exposure and passed away due to infection with the coronavirus but failed to seek compensation during their lifetime, you can still file a claim on their behalf.

Our attorneys will help you file a claim with every liable entity, such as asbestos trust funds and the VA, in the case of asbestos exposure.
