Rounded atelectasis

processing claims for over 50 years

On X-rays, rounded atelectasis appears as a round mass, which can easily be mistaken for a cancerous tumor. Round atelectasis is frequently related to asbestos exposure since the fibers accumulated on the surface of the pleura can cause severe tissue scarring. If in addition to rounded atelectasis asbestos fibers also show up on your X-ray you might be eligible for compensation.

Occupational Asbestos Exposure

With a rounded atelectasis diagnosis you will need to travel to our medical facility in Birmingham, AL if you wish to receive compensation. Additional no-charge testing will be required, generally a chest x-ray and a physical exam.

Rounded atelectasis may coexist with lung cancer

If you were/are a smoker and were diagnosed with lung diseases and have occupational military or industrial exposure to asbestos, we can look into eligibility for a claim for you.

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.
