- Mesothelioma Veterans
- Mesothelioma Treatment Community
Mesothelioma Treatment Community is dedicated to the assistance and guidance of asbestos and mesothelioma victims around the world. They inspire hope during unbearable times and also provide palliative care and comprehensive information to help guide patients and their loved ones toward the answers and support they need to improve their quality of life, prognosis, and life expectancy. Information available on their website includes asbestos exposure by Military Branch, Mesothelioma compensation, and Healthcare options.
Approximately thirty percent of patients diagnosed with mesothelioma are veterans who have served in the U.S. military. The high rate of veteran victims is due to the reliance of the military on asbestos for numerous applications. In previous years, the military used asbestos for its heat-resistant and fireproof characteristics. The Navy, Army, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard all utilized asbestos in nearly every form of transportation, electrical wiring, housing and insulation, just to name a few. Mesothelioma.net is here to help any veteran who has been diagnosed with asbestos-related cancer. Contact them at 1-800-692-8608 to find out if you are eligible to receive compensation.
Mesothelioma Lawyer Center
For over 20 years the Mesothelioma Lawyer Center has been helping Veterans connect with leading mesothelioma lawyers in their area. There are many law firms that handle mesothelioma cases, and the choices available to affected Veterans and their families may seem overwhelming. We eleviate the confusion and help you locate only the top lawyers. Our Patient Advocates will help you obtain the financial compensation you need to help with treatments and provide a better quality of life.
Mesothelioma Veterans Center
The goal of the Mesothelioma Veterans Outreach is to reach veterans and their families who have been affected by mesothelioma and connect them to free veteran specific resources and support. 1/3 of all mesothelioma patients are veterans, since 2004 over 5,000 veterans have died from mesothelioma. The reason this cancer targets so many veterans is because of the prevalence of asbestos use in the military in the past. A large part of our mission is to help spread awareness to veterans and their families.
Veterans make up the largest group of mesothelioma victims, but many veterans avoid making VA and asbestos trust claims because they are complex and time-consuming. Our VA-accredited claims and evidence specialists have streamlined the process for all types of claims and will help veterans better understand the necessary paperwork, and will provide assistance for writing an exposure fact report. Our Patient Advocates also assist in gathering all the necessary documentation for trust fund applications.
