Understanding Your Rights as a Veteran

Veterans represent the largest single population of individuals that have developed mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. This is because the military required the extensive use of asbestos throughout government facilities, ships, aircraft and shipyards due to its fireproofing and heat resistant properties. Veterans from all branches of the armed forces including the Navy, Army, Air Force and Marines are at risk for developing this fatal disease as a result of asbestos exposure during their tour of service. As a Veteran you do have legal rights. We have worked with thousands of Veterans and have a comprehensive understanding of how Veterans suffering from mesothelioma were exposed to asbestos while serving their country. Legal support for Veterans is available from our mesothelioma lawyers.  We specialize in cases for U.S. Veterans and have conducted extensive investigation on over 500 United States Navy battleships, destroyers, aircraft carriers, cruisers, and submarines. We will work on your behalf to bring suit against asbestos product manufacturers whose products were used extensively in shipyards, Navy ships, government buildings and airplane engines.

Veterans Concerned Over Institute of Medicine's Determination of Gulf War Syndrome

“Under a directive from the Department of Veterans Affairs [VA], the Institute of Medicine [IOM] will convene a panel to determine what conditions constitute “Gulf War Illness.” Some Gulf War Veterans are concerned that the panel will be dismissive over some medical conditions while “lumping” other conditions together.”

VA Secretary's Ambitious Plan to Overhaul Claims System Shows Promise

“Surprising or not, the Department of Veterans Affairs kept physical, paper files on each and every claim made by a veteran, and because the record keeping is cumbersome and archaic, many question why the VA has stuck to such an outdated claims system for so long, especially with the recent uptick of veterans needing support and services.”
