Mesothelioma and Asbestos-Related Conditions
Mesothelioma, asbestosis, some forms of lung cancers and several other diseases are caused by exposure to asbestos. In most cases, asbestos exposure happens in the workplace, primarily because employers do not provide employees with adequate information and proper protective gear. The employees unwittingly spread the fibers to family members.
Asbestos-related diseases begin when individuals inhale or ingest asbestos fibers. The fibers become lodged internally and cause irritations that lead to cancer and other diseases. Some of the deadliest asbestos diseases silently develop over a period of years and decades, rendering curative treatment nearly impossible. In other cases, victims live for years with debilitating symptoms that impact every aspect of life.
How We Help
We help asbestos-exposure victims determine the sites and years of exposure, obtain the necessary physician certifications and secure the critical documentation to ease the process of asbestos bankruptcy trust claims. We also help patients seek other forms of compensation, including lawsuit victories and settlements. Our VA claims specialists connect veterans with state- and federal-level benefits and compensation.
We have partnered with medical experts to provide clients with information kits about the disease, treatments and financial options. The materials are presented in a readable format and written in a straightforward style. The information kits include three books with crucial information about mesothelioma, customized inserts to address specific medical needs, detailed materials explaining our services and awareness wristbands.
With our decades of experience come deep roots in the asbestos-treatment community. Our Doctor Match program connects patients with the nation’s leading asbestos-disease treatment experts for the best possible outcomes. We work collaboratively with the leading physicians and cancer centers in the country so our patients can have access to cutting-edge treatments and pioneering clinical trials.
We help veterans get free medical treatment and apply for a variety of financial and health benefits. Our agents also work with veterans to file appeals for denied claims. Our accredited VA representatives have undergone formal training with U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, including background investigations and continuing education requirements, to assist veterans filing claims.
