Thirty percent of those diagnosed with mesothelioma annually are military veterans
Did you know that mesothelioma is recognized as a “service-connected” medical condition by the Veteran Affairs Department (VA)? This means that you may be eligible for VA benefits. Qualifying can be challenging, but help is available. Currently, U.S. military veterans account for just seven percent of the American population. However, veterans are estimated to be 30 percent of the nearly 3,000 mesothelioma cases diagnosed annually in the United States. If you are a veteran who was exposed to asbestos during your military service and you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, a VA accredited attorney can help you file for VA benefits.
Waters Kraus Paul & Siegel’s asbestos lawyers have successfully prosecuted cases for clients who were exposed throughout the United States, Canada, and even the Middle East including Iran, where many American citizens worked in refineries.
