Illnesses Caused by Agent Orange You've Done Your Part, Let Us Do Ours

Illnesses Caused by Agent Orange

Agent Orange is a military code name for chemicals used during the Vietnam War to kill large expanses of forest and plant life as a military strategy. It was highly toxic and veterans that served in the areas where it was used have increased rates of soft-tissue sarcoma and many other disorders including:

  • Throat, lung, prostate, colon cancer as well as others
  • Chloracne, a skin condition
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Hodgkin's Disease
  • Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma
  • Parkinson's Disease

In addition, Agent Orange is known to cause birth defects in the children of veterans who were exposed. Spina bifida is one such birth defect but there are many more. An Atlanta VA disability lawyer should be consulted as soon as possible if you or a loved one was exposed to Agent Orange, or suspect you may have been, and are suffering from any of these symptoms. If you are uncertain, we recommend you contact our office and we can help you determine if you may have a claim.

The destruction and devastation caused by Agent Orange was most tragic. It can be particularly traumatic to our own soldiers who were not adequately protected by their own government. You are entitled to your disability and we will fight aggressively and tirelessly on your behalf to ensure there is justice. We are experienced when it comes to fighting the government and other large bureaucracies. We know there can be a lack of compassion and understanding of your situation by those that are supposed to be providing you help and assistance. Our firm can help you to set things right. We welcome the chance to return the help and support that you provided to our country.
