Coast Guard Ships and Mesothelioma Claims

We Help U. S. Veterans with Mesothelioma Lawsuits in all 50 States

Coast Guard Ships MesotheliomaCoast Guard ships provide aviation and ocean support for the U. S. Coast Guard. The Coast Guard operates more than 210 aircraft from 24 Coast Guard Air Stations in the United States.

Coast Guard Veterans that have been diagnosed with Mesothelioma or any Asbestos related diseases may be eligible to receive compensation from responsible asbestos companies and manufacturers.

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 the 1930s until 1980, many U. S. military planes, bases, vehicles and barracks 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 U. S. base buildings and base housing used by U. S. service members and their families.

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.

  • The U. S. Coast Guard was founded on August 4, 1790.
  • Asbestos-containing products and materials were used heavily on Coast Guard cutters, as well as Navy and Merchant Marine ships.
  • 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.

Coast Guard Veterans and Asbestos Exposure

Thousands of U. S. servicemen and women came into contact with asbestos fibers during their tour of service. Many 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.

  • Asbestos was used by the U. S. Military in more than 300 different materials and products.
  • Millions of U. S. Veterans have been exposed to asbestos during their tour of service.
  • A recent study showed that as many as 30-40% of Mesothelioma victims is U. S. Veterans.
  • Mesothelioma has affected veterans from all branches of service including those who worked in Navy shipyards.
  • The U.S. Military used thousands of asbestos-containing products in their ships between the 1920-late 1970’s.
  • Asbestos was listed as the top contaminant at 32 U.S. Army base closures during the 1990s.
  • Mesothelioma and other asbestos related diseases primarily occur in Veterans between the ages of 55-75.
  • Veterans who served between 1940 and 1980 have the greatest risk of developing Mesothelioma or an asbestos-related cancer.
  • 14 in every 1,000 WW II shipyard workers died of an asbestos-related disease compared to 18 in every 1,000 combat related deaths.
  • Asbestos was used heavily in the shipbuilding and in military ships. Many veterans working in confined quarters have been exposed to asbestos.

Asbestos is most dangerous when inhaled or ingested. Most U. S. Veterans are particularly at risk because that worked on building and demolition projects that exposed them to asbestos fibers and dust. It was nearly impossible to avoid coming into to contact with asbestos if you worked on military construction sites.

Coast Guard veterans were daily exposed to toxic asbestos dust and fibers where they inhaled and ingested them without any protection in their workplace. Families of workers and other military veterans that were exposed to asbestos secondhand are also developing Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related disease.

Coast Guard 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.

Coast Guard Veterans Have the Right to sue Manufacturers that exposed them to Asbestos.

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
