Air Force Veterans and Mesothelioma Claims
We Help Air Force Veterans with Mesothelioma Lawsuits in all 50 States
U. S. Air Force Veterans that have been diagnosed with Mesothelioma or any Asbestos related diseases may be eligible to receive compensation from responsible asbestos companies and manufacturers.
Air Force Veterans who served in the Armed Forces are being diagnosed with Mesothelioma and other asbestos related diseases. Most Veterans do not start showing asbestos related symptoms until 10-50 years after their initial exposure. Asbestos exposure is responsible for approximately 10,000 deaths each year in the United States. From 1930 through 1980 U. S. Air Force planes were built with parts containing toxic asbestos.
From the 1930s to the 1970s, many U.S. Air Force planes were constructed with parts containing asbestos, such as engines, brakes, wiring and other materials that needed to be insulated from the extreme heat. Asbestos was used in Air Force base buildings and base housing used by Air Force service members and their families.

Air Force Mesothelioma Facts
- The U. S. Air Force (USAF) was founded in 1907 as the air power division of U. S. Army.
- The U. S. Air Force broke away from the U. S. Army in 1947.
- Because asbestos has an ability to withstand extreme heat, it was used widely throughout the U. S. Military.
- The U. S. Armed Forces used asbestos-containing products in ships, aircraft, buildings, barracks, mess halls, and other military facilities.
- The Department of Veterans Affairs states that there are over 25 million Americans that have previously served in the U.S. Military.
- USAF Veterans were also exposed to asbestos working in aviation crash crews and when fighting fires and rescuing personnel from burning planes.
- Asbestos was found in the Eagle Ridge housing area on Ellsworth Air Force Base after a recent inspection of military housing.
Many Air Force Veterans diagnosed with Mesothelioma have complained that they were not given any warning, training or respiratory protective gear when handling, installing, loading, repairing, or removing asbestos-containing products.
The Navy Surgeon General became aware In 1939 that asbestosis was being caused by extended asbestos exposure to Veterans yet the Navy continued its use of asbestos for 4 more decades. U. S. regulations on asbestos exposure began in the late 1970s. Because of its long latency period asbestos-related diseases like Mesothelioma cancer has made Veterans sick through no fault of their own. U. S. Courts are now holding asbestos companies and manufacturers that exposed Veterans to the toxic asbestos dust and fibers accountable by awarding mesothelioma victims large settlements for their pain and suffering.

We Do Not Sue the Military or the Government
Asbestos related cancers among Veterans are not the fault of the military or even the government. It is the fault of the asbestos manufacturers and companies. Asbestos companies knew of the potential health issues related to asbestos exposure as far back as the 1920’s, but knowingly hid this information from the public, the medical community and even the U.S. Military and continued to profit off their deadly asbestos materials.
If you are a Veteran and are suffering from Mesothelioma cancer, you can seek justice from these greedy asbestos manufacturers. It’s not unpatriotic to fight back against the big asbestos companies that have exposed you deadly asbestos products.
Veterans injured from asbestos exposure during their service have the right to sue the asbestos companies that produced and sold the asbestos materials and products used by the U. S. Military
