Veterans injured by asbestos exposure are entitled to compensation both from asbestos trust funds and from the VA.
However, to make the process of filing a VA disability claim easier, we advise you to first file a claim with asbestos trust funds or with the companies that exposed you to asbestos.
Because your lawyer will invest several months in preparing your asbestos claim for submission, they will have the necessary documents ready for filing a claim with the VA, including the evidence that supports the connection between asbestos exposure and your diagnosis. This way, the VA will be more likely to take your claim into consideration and subsequently offer you disability compensation.
Contrary to popular belief, veterans can receive financial compensation both from asbestos trust funds or former asbestos companies and from the VA at the same time, as they are entitled to both.
To recover compensation both from asbestos trust funds and from the VA, however, you will have to work with a lawyer who specializes in toxic exposure, as they are the only professionals who have the necessary knowledge to properly prepare your asbestos claim for submission.
It is important to know that hiring a law firm whose main area of practice is toxic exposure if you intend to obtain compensation for asbestos exposure is free of charge unless they recover money for you. Because they work on a contingency fee basis, you will not be required to pay their legal team anything unless they obtain compensation for you. Before contacting a lawyer, we strongly advise you to reach out to our team of experts, who will help you determine whether you qualify for compensation as a victim of asbestos exposure.
