It is a difficult, upsetting reality that U.S. veterans are much more likely to develop mesothelioma as a result of exposure to asbestos while serving . This includes those who were active in the Navy, Army, Marines, Coast Guard, and the U.S. Air Force. Because of this exposure, veterans are eligible to receive benefits in the form of medical treatment and disability compensation from the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs if they have been diagnosed with mesothelioma.
However, in order to ensure that you, as a veteran, receive the benefits that you deserve, it is advisable that you work with an experienced attorney in order to ensure that all of the appropriate forms are completed correctly. An attorney—and a firm—that focuses on representing victims of asbestos exposure can help navigate the benefits process so that you receive the compensation that you need without delay.
Michael Throneberry—having deal with mesothelioma in his own family—understands the process that veterans must go through to obtain well-deserved benefits, and has dedicated his career and firm to providing legal assistance and guidance to those suffering from asbestos exposure.

While asbestos has always been a naturally-occurring mineral, its commercial use was vastly increased during World War II, especially in the military. While used as a fireproofing material, it was also significantly used throughout shipyards, in automobiles, aircraft, electric wiring, and in buildings, cement, and other products. In fact, its use was continued even after its toxic, carcinogenic nature was well known. Years later, many veterans suffering from respiratory and other health issues would come to realize that, as a result of their time served protecting our country, they now suffered from mesothelioma.
While veterans who served prior to 1980 are most at risk of developing asbestos-related health problems, because it has taken the military decades to remove products containing asbestos, even those stationed most recently are at risk from exposure, as even brief exposure can bring about asbestos-related cancers such as mesothelioma.
