Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center Now Urges President Trump to Stop the VA from Placing Liens on The Compensation Settlements for Navy Veterans with Mesothelioma or Asbestos Exposure Lung Cancer-The Navy Caused the Exposure Not the Sailor

WASHINGTONMarch 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center says, “We have just learned the Veterans Administration is now placing liens for medical treatments on the financial compensation settlements for US Navy Veterans who have mesothelioma or asbestos exposure lung cancer-are you kidding us? We are now urging President Trump to issue an Executive order to stop this ridiculous practice.

“To be very clear it was the US Navy that caused the US Navy Veteran to be exposed to asbestos in the first place. Why on earth should the US Navy Veteran have to reimburse the VA for medical treatments that were related to the navy forcing their sailors to be exposed to asbestos on a ship or submarine? The reason we are appealing directly to President Trump is that we think he will do something about this insult to every US Navy Veteran who has served in our nation’s amazing navy.

“At this moment the US Congress appears to be so incredibly self-absorbed with complete nonsense that it might take them a year to fix this incredibly serious problem. It is for this reason we are appealing directly to President Trump.” http://LungCancerAsbestosVictimsCenter.Com

The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center is pointing to an obscure VA rule-U.S. Code that has to do with medical treatments for Veterans that involve a compensation settlement related to personal injury law suits. This rule is found under U.S. Code, Title 38, § 1729.

According to the Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center, “The geniuses at the Veterans Administration and or the US Congress probably failed to consider mesothelioma or asbestos exposure lung cancer financial compensation settlements involving US Navy Veterans-when they created this rule. As we mentioned -the US Navy created the environment for a Navy Veteran to be exposed to asbestos-why should the Navy Veteran have to pay one cent for their VA medical treatment-when it was a government department (Department of the Navy) that caused the exposure to asbestos in the first place? The Navy Veteran’s medical care in the event of asbestos exposure lung cancer or mesothelioma should be free of charge-with no strings attached.” http://LungCancerAsbestosVictimsCenter.Com
