U.S. Veterans Asbestos Exposure Cancer Compensation
The U.S. Veteran’s Affairs (VA) system offers compensation for patients with asbestos-related cancers under highly specific conditions. Namely, they must be able to prove that the triggering exposure could have only occurred during service. They must also document a disability related to exposure, such as a debilitating mesothelioma condition.
Providing the needed proof for these claims can create challenges for veterans. They must often rely on the services of an experienced asbestos cancer lawyer in order to assemble their case. Even then, they may not receive the extent of their needed compensation from VA sources alone.
Instead, veterans can often seek legal remedies from other agencies responsible for their exposure. Asbestos product manufacturers, ship building contractors and others may be deemed liable by the courts for their decisions that resulted in exposure to veterans.
As many of these companies have restructured or dissolved since the time of exposure, exposed veterans can look to bankruptcy trust funds established for the purposes of compensating veterans asbestos exposure victims.Our legal teams fight harder than anyone for our veterans rights to compensation
