Mesothelioma Attorneys For Veterans

Attorneys Paul McConnell and Dr. Mike Giordano proudly and steadfastly represent and serve our fellow veterans that become inflicted with mesothelioma. Some estimates claim that over 30% of patients inflicted with mesothelioma are veterans – predominantly, but not exclusively navy veterans. 10,000 veterans die each year from asbestos-related causes. In all events, we know what you are facing and we will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our shipmates and their families as they face this battle head-on.

About Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that originates in the protective linings that cover major organs in the abdomen and chest. There are approximately 3,500 people diagnosed each year in the United States. The most common type of mesothelioma is pleural mesothelioma, which grows in the pleural space between the chest wall and lung and then progresses to the lung itself and other areas of the thoracic cavity (chest). There are several different types of mesothelioma and the treatment differs for each. Moreover, the science is rapidly evolving and thus available treatment plans evolve with it. It is important to assemble the right team for the fight.

Anyone can get mesothelioma as it inflicts both men and women; young and old; black and white. The predominant risk factor in developing mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos. As can be expected, the greater the exposure, the greater the risk. As previously stated, a large share of mesothelioma patients are navy veterans who were exposed to asbestos in the boiler rooms of ships or working in the shipyards. Great deals of civilian workers were also exposed to asbestos working in navy shipyards.

Mesothelioma is a rare disease and many oncologists and surgeons have never seen a mesothelioma patient prior to you. If you don’t know where to turn start with us and we will assist you in assembling the right team with the right resources.

Legal Claims, Lawsuits, And Settlements

It is important to understand that despite the volume, each case is unique. Many victims – civilian and military – will be able to obtain some relief through the Asbestos Trust Fund. More than 50 companies created asbestos bankruptcy trusts, resulting in $30 billion available to mesothelioma cancer victims. These companies that created and benefited from asbestos products were forced to put up money to pay victims of asbestos exposure. This money can be used to cover cancer treatment costs, help with family bills, and ensure your family’s future.

In addition to filing claims with trust funds, victims of mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis, and other asbestos-related diseases are frequently eligible to file lawsuits against any one of a number of asbestos producing companies still in business. Much effort is required to first deduce when and where the victim’s asbestos exposure occurred. Thereafter, a proper investigation will determine which manufacturers should be accountable. Deciding where to file a lawsuit is very important and is not restricted to the location where the patient resides. As we can further explain the forum choices depend on numerous factors. Nationally, the most common Asbestos dockets include Madison County, Illinois; Oakland, California; Los Angeles, California; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Delaware, and New York among others. Regardless of forum, we will be with you every step of the journey.

In addition to the above avenues of redress, veterans may also be entitled to file service related claims with the Veterans Administration or have their disability rating increased.

We are here to help veterans maximize the benefits they are justifiably entitled to receive.
