When completing a claims form, it’s important to understand that VA evaluators require significant amounts of evidence describing your service-related asbestos exposure, and even how that exposure has led to a mesothelioma diagnosis. It’s important that your claim be written as clearly and with as much detail as possible, citing specific jobs, postings, or events where you believe your exposure occurred.
A good claim will also provide information about possible avenues of exposure that happened after your time in the service, and show how your service-related exposure contributed to your mesothelioma diagnosis. Standards of evidence matter, and we can help ensure that you claim is as detail-rich and fact-oriented as possible, with levels of supporting evidence that are designed to be persuasive to VA personnel who evaluate your claim.
