Boca Raton, FL – Grossman Attorneys at Law is assisting civilian contractors with filing defense base act claims for compensation for injuries related to exposure to military burn pits while working overseas. Unlike military service members, these employees of federal contractors do not have medical coverage offered by the Veterans Affairs.
As a law firm that focuses on defense base act and military contractor litigation worldwide, affected military burn pit victims can rest assured that they are in good hands. The attorneys at the law firm are open to discussing with victims about their experiences and injuries while also advising them on the best line of action to ensure that they get burn pit compensation for the damages suffered. Civilian employees of government contractors exposed to toxic burn pits on military bases but do not know whether they qualify for the burn pit lawsuit can speak to the attorneys for help.
The Grossman Attorneys at Law spokesperson, Howard Grossman, said: “During his State of the Union speech, President Biden mentioned overseas military burn pits and the risks they pose to service members who are exposed to the toxic smoke. Injuries and illnesses caused by these burn pits will be covered under VA medical benefits, but people are forgetting that many civilian contractors are also being exposed to these burn pits. Moreover, it is usually government contractors who operate the burn pits – not service members themselves.”
He added that “these civilian employees are not eligible for VA medical benefits, and are instead covered by the Defense Base Act. Finally, while the military is slowly replacing burn pits with onsite incinerators, these are only slightly safer and still produce toxic smoke and fumes.”
The leading attorney revealed that burn pit exposures predispose victims to cancers like squamous cell carcinoma of the larynx and trachea, adenocarcinoma of the trachea, Salivary gland-type tumors of the trachea, adenosquamous carcinoma of the lung, Large cell carcinoma of the lung, salivary gland-type tumors of the lung, sarcomatoid carcinoma of the lung, as well as typical and atypical carcinoid of the lung.
