Veterans were often exposed to asbestos fibers while serving in the military and in their civilian lives. The VA offers compensation to veterans who suffered service-related exposure while claims with the trust funds provide compensation from the manufacturers of asbestos products.
Before you start an asbestos claim for VA disability or trust fund compensation, consider talking to one of our representatives. We have tens of years of experience helping veterans get approval for their claims related to asbestos exposure.
Many veterans assume that a disease diagnosed years after their service is not considered service-related by the VA. The truth is you can get approved as long as you can prove that at least 50% of your occupational exposure was caused by your military service. Asbestos Vets can help you to make that case by assisting you with VA claims.
Although the military is not at fault for veterans with asbestos-related diseases, the manufacturers of asbestos products knew for decades that asbestos was a cancer-causing mineral, and they hid this from the public. Many of these manufacturers have asbestos trust funds that can compensate veterans.
