If you are veteran with an asbestos-related disease, you can potentially apply for Veteran Affairs (VA) benefits. We can assist you with filing an effective application. You must be able to prove that your disease is asbestos-related, and that the asbestos exposure occurred during your service in the military.
The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs currently recognizes mesothelioma as a medical condition connected with service. However, even if you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma as a veteran, you may still have your claim for VA benefits rejected for various reasons. Our attorneys can help you fight to obtain the compensation you need and deserve to help pay for your treatment.
Our Baltimore asbestos attorneys can make the process of filing a VA claim much simpler and easier for you by ensuring we have all of the information you need to prove your condition (and the place of exposure) upfront. If your claim has already been rejected, we can help you file an appeal.
If you cannot prove that your asbestos exposure was isolated to military service, you can still seek compensation from the asbestos manufacturer.
