Toxic Exposure Benefits
Being a member of the United States military comes with its own inherent risks and safety hazards but what about when those hazards could have been avoided? All too often, many of these hazards are invisible such as asbestos, radioactive materials, contaminants in the drinking water, and more that eventually lead to serious chronic conditions such as different cancers, respiratory issues, and others just to name some examples. Unfortunately, the U.S. Military has decades of toxic hazards that veterans were exposed to depending on when and where they served. In this section of our blog, we detail all the contaminants, hazardous materials, and toxic materials that we are aware of and what the path to VA disability benefits looks like for those issues. Normally, we would also speak of Agent Orange, a herbicide used during the Vietnam War, but the sheer amount of information uncovered about this chemical deserves its own section found here.
