Mesothelioma has hit many U.S. veterans who were repeatedly exposed to asbestos dust and asbestos-based products during their time in the service. If you have mesothelioma, you might believe that you have no legal recourse because of laws that prohibit you from suing the U.S. government. While this is true, you do have other, very specific legal options.
At Tully Rinckey PLLC, our team of military law attorneys are passionate about fighting for the legal rights of veterans stricken with mesothelioma. We work to help you pursue all legal avenues to satisfying your claim. Veterans are free to sue the companies that manufactured and sold asbestos. Furthermore, veterans are able to apply for VA benefits for asbestos-related disease if they can prove the exposure occurred during military service. Many of the companies that manufactured asbestos are still in business today and liable for compensating victims of mesothelioma. If your work history can be traced, it’s likely that grounds for legal action against the asbestos manufacturer exist.
The amounts awarded in asbestos lawsuit settlements are based on many factors – the funds available, the duration and location of the asbestos exposure, your overall health. The experienced attorneys at Tully Rinckey know how to work with opposing counsel to ensure that you and your family receive the settlement you deserve. We stand ready to fight for the compensation you deserve.
