  • Mesothelioma and Veterans

    • VA Benefits for Veterans with Mesothelioma due to the military’s widespread use of asbestos between the 1930s and early 1980s. Thousands of military members were exposed to asbestos during their service, causing high rates of mesothelioma among veterans. Mesothelioma symptoms generally do not appear until 20-50 years after asbestos exposure, meaning veterans who served up until the 1980s may be at risk today. U.S. military veterans with mesothelioma may be eligible for various VA benefits, including health care and disability compensation. Contact us today.
