Information for Veterans
Where Did You Serve?
- Though every branch of the military defends our country in their own way, not every branch was as likely to use asbestos. Knowing how and where you served is important in understanding your likeliness to develop mesothelioma.
What Are Your Benefits?
- Veterans who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma are eligible for benefits through the VA. These benefits can help cover medical costs or loss of income. Seeking legal compensation also has no effect on a veteran's benefits.
Treatment for mesothelioma is unique to every individual. This comes from several factors such as the stage of cancer, it’s location in the body, the age of the individual, their health, and more. Familiarizing yourself with the possible treatment options before speaking with a specialist can help ease stress and have a better conversation with your doctor.
Exposure to asbestos, the most common cause of mesothelioma, is almost always the result of negligence from one party. Be it a corporation or property owner who does not disclose their information, if you’ve been exposed to asbestos then you may be eligible for financial compensation through a personal injury or wrongful death claim, or even an asbestos trust.
Learn More About Your Options
Asbestos exposure is not even across every state. Given the carcinogen’s prominence in certain industries, locations that had larger shipyards, industrial warehouses, and even manufacturing plants are more likely to be exposed to asbestos than areas that relied more heavily on agriculture. Learning more about where asbestos is in your state could help when seeking legal action.
