We Can Help You Get the Benefits You Deserve.
Which best describes you?
Please select one.
Why does this matter?
It is important that you identify yourself as either a U.S. military veteran or as the child or spouse of a veteran who died from a service-connected disability. The type of compensation and benefits you are entitled to, as well as the claims process for receiving those benefits, differs for veterans and survivors.
For veterans who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer, our knowledgeable attorneys can help you pursue maximum compensation by:
- Identifying the asbestos manufacturers that were responsible for your exposure and resulting illness
- Filing claims through asbestos trust funds
- Negotiating settlements with or pursuing lawsuits against the companies that put you in harm’s way
- Filing for VA benefits through our VA-accredited claims representative
For the spouse or child of a veteran who died from mesothelioma or lung cancer, our compassionate lawyers can help you cope with the financial burden you are facing by:
- Pursuing a wrongful death claim to recover compensation for funeral and burial expenses, your loved one’s health care expenses, lost wages and benefits, the value of lost support and services, any inheritance lost by surviving children, and the nurturing and care the children no longer receive
- Filing a claim for compensation for the pain and suffering your loved one experienced before death due to the disease
- Filing for Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC) survivor benefits with the help of our VA-accredited claims representative
Why Choose Belluck & Fox To Help With Your Claims?
Belluck & Fox is a nationally recognized law firm in New York, highly respected mesothelioma law firm that focuses on advocating for veterans who were exposed to asbestos while serving in the Navy and other branches of the Armed Forces. For more than 20 years, veterans and their families have trusted our skilled mesothelioma attorneys to fight for compensation from large asbestos corporations and manage their VA benefit claims.
Clients choose our firm because our knowledgeable attorneys are:
Widely recognized for securing million-dollar verdicts and settlements. We are proud to have won more than $800 million for clients and their families over the years.
Experienced in the complex nature of mesothelioma cases. Asbestos claims are complicated. They require resources and knowledge that only come through decades of experience.
Committed to your comfort and your family. We will not ask you to travel to meet with us or go to court. Our dedicated attorneys frequently fly across the U.S. to visit veterans and their families, and we can collect all the information needed for your claim in the comfort of your home or a health care facility.
Recommended for our compassion during the most difficult times. As one of our clients said: “Thank you so much for your patience, expertise and endurance yesterday at my dad’s deposition. You handled him with care and were mindful of his needs.”
Strongly connected within the mesothelioma community. Our dedicated attorneys can put you in touch with doctors, nurses, caregivers, and other patients who understand what you’re going through.
We know that veterans and their families need all the support they can get after a mesothelioma or lung cancer diagnosis. Paying for hospital bills, expensive treatments, and quality long-term care facilities can drain a family financially. Meanwhile, the disease itself takes a severe physical, emotional, and psychological toll. You deserve an experienced advocate who will fight for full and fair compensation from the company that exposed you to asbestos.
Will My Claim Hurt The Navy?
No, our mesothelioma lawyers do not file claims against the Navy or any other branches of the military. Instead, we use our extensive database of asbestos manufacturers to identify the companies that provided asbestos products to the Navy. These are the companies that should be held accountable for recklessly endangering your health by failing to warn people about the hazards of asbestos.
Can I Get VA Benefits And Pursue Compensation From An Asbestos Company?
Yes, we will help you identify all your options for pursuing the money you need to cover your medical bills and lost wages, as well as compensation to account for the physical and emotional pain and suffering you have endured due to your illness.
At Belluck & Fox, our VA-accredited claims representative can help you file your claim for benefits while we work on pursuing compensation from the at-fault companies. Our VA-accredited claims representative understands the complex rules, laws, and evidence requirements of the claims process and will make sure that your application is correctly submitted to the VA. Failure to submit all necessary documents accurately and on-time could result in your claim being delayed and/or denied.
We do not charge anything to file for VA benefits for those who have chosen us to represent them in a mesothelioma claim.
