You Are Not Alone
Each year, approximately 3,000 individuals are diagnosed with mesothelioma. Of this population, nearly 30 percent are fellow veterans who served our country. If you are one of these individuals, you are in the fight of your life. Take comfort in knowing that there are others ready to stand by your side to fight with you and for you.
Given our veterans' widespread asbestos exposure, many large urban medical centers and even Veterans Hospitals have established programs available to former military personnel suffering from asbestos-related illnesses. If you are looking for individualized care or support, most Veterans Centers and Clinics offer counseling for veterans and their families. These centers provide a support network for veterans to discuss the many issues that plague former military personnel. From public policy and legislation to mental health care issues and homelessness, many veterans use these centers as a means to socialize and to gain insight into their past and to help with the battles they still face. Some of these centers also provide long term health care and housing for veterans, while providing affordable, high quality, comprehensive nursing and domiciliary care.
If you are seeking guidance or medical support during your illness, please seek the assistance of your physician or reach out to a trained professional from the selection of groups listed below. To learn more about your legal options during your treatment, please contact one of our veteran attorneys at Coady Law who will advise you of your rights.
