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 the health issues related to asbestos exposure as far back as the 1920s but hid this information from the public, the medical community, and even the U.S. Military. They chose to continue profiting 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.

We have been counseling Veterans and Mesothelioma patients for more than 15 years on the legal and medical sides of Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related cancers.

Mesothelioma is a highly specialized legal field and having an experienced Veterans Mesothelioma lawyer can make a massive difference in the amount of your settlement.

Mesothelioma cases can take 1-3 years in the busy U. S. Court system. Lawyers for Asbestos companies will try to stretch out the time to settle, and some Mesothelioma patients will die during this time. At this point, it will become a Mesothelioma Wrongful Death case.

Family members are allowed to seek financial compensation from the negligence of asbestos manufacturers for their loss.


Malignant Mesothelioma

Malignant Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that affects the lining of the lungs, abdomen, heart, and major organs in the body.

In most states, the Statute of Limitations is 2-3 years. Some states have a 6-year Statute of Limitations.
