Although it is present in a wide variety of conditions, such as tuberculosis, arthritis or congestive heart failure, pleural effusion may also be a sign of mesothelioma. Seeking medical assistance as soon as you start noticing the symptoms is crucial. If asbestos fibers show up on your X-rays and you have a pleural effusion diagnosis you might be eligible for compensation.

Conditions that qualify for VA asbestos compensation

Asbestos diseases entitle veterans to compensation benefits only if the majority of the asbestos exposure occurred during active duty. Only a few of these diseases will bring in a 100% disability coverage (like pleural and peritoneal mesothelioma), and all of them require documentation and proof that they were caused by asbestos exposure and not other causes.
