Yes, the VA has established several pathways by which individuals can apply for benefits after being diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease, but the process can be daunting.
The standards of evidence for a claim to be approved are high, and if VA denies a claim, a lengthy appeals process can delay the benefits that you are entitled to under the law.
When you work with an experienced New Orleans VA mesothelioma claims lawyer, you can count on your application have the most thorough and compelling evidence to support your claim.
This results in a faster process and a much lower risk of denial. Service members who worked in a variety of roles in their military careers were exposed to dangerous levels of asbestos, sometimes for many years.
The military has recognized its role in causing injury to service members, and has set aside benefits especially for people who’ve developed an asbestos-related disease as a result.
If you’re a veteran in New Orleans who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, asbestosis, or another asbestos-linked disease, get the benefits you are entitled to.
