Types Of Asbestos Diseases and Compensation Recognized by the VA
U.S. Veterans who fell ill as a result of Asbestos exposure during their service can file asbestos-related claims with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, also known as VA. The VA offers special resources to Veterans who developed asbestos-related diseases, providing them with advanced medical care and special forms of monetary compensation.
The VA provides their services to all branches of the U.S. Military.
U. S. Veterans and Mesothelioma
According to the U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs, there are currently more than 25 million people who have served in the Military. We at Flint Law Firm are proud of this rich tradition, and count some of our family among those who have served their country. As a firm, we are happy to help our Veterans in any way we can. Unfortunately, one legacy of military service is that our military bases, shipyards, and vessels have (until recently) had a high potential for Asbestos exposure.
Those who served in the Navy, Army, Marine Corps, Coast Guard & Air Force may be eligible to file a claim. If you qualify, we will NOT be pursuing any legal action against our military, our country, nor any branch of the service. We will only be pursuing claims against the Asbestos manufacturers for the harm that they knowingly caused in providing Asbestos containing products to the United States armed forces.
We can help Military veterans apply for Veteran Administration benefits.
