U. S. Army and Mesothelioma Claims
We Help U. S. Army Veterans with Mesothelioma Lawsuits in all 50 States
U. S. Army Veterans that have mesothelioma or any asbestos-related diseases may be eligible to receive compensation from responsible asbestos companies and manufacturers. The U. S. Army is the largest and oldest branch of the United States Armed Forces.
Asbestos was listed at the top the contaminants at 32 U.S. Army bases before they were closed or realigned during the late 1990s. Many Army bases still contain toxic asbestos materials today.
Army veterans that served in WW 2, Korea, Vietnam, and both Gulf Wars are at risk for developing mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases in their lifetime.
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 insolation from the extreme heat. Asbestos was used in U. S. base buildings and base housing used by U. S. Army service members and their families.
The Navy Surgeon General became aware in 1939 that asbestosis was caused by extended asbestos exposure to Veterans, yet the Navy continued its use of asbestos for four more decades. U. S. regulations on asbestos exposure began in the late 1970s.
U. S. Courts are holding asbestos companies and manufacturers that exposed Veterans to the toxic asbestos dust and fibers accountable. They are awarding mesothelioma victims large settlements for their pain and suffering.
Army Veterans and Asbestos Exposure

- Millions of U. S. Veterans have had exposure to asbestos during their tour of service.

- 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 1970s.
- Asbestos was listed as the top contaminant at 32 U.S. Army base closures during the 1990s.
- Malignant Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases primarily occur in Veterans between the ages of 55-75.
- Veterans who served between 1940 and 1970 have the highest risk of developing Mesothelioma or 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 military ships. Many veterans working in cramped quarters have had asbestos exposure.
Asbestos is most dangerous when inhaled or ingested. Most U. S. Army 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.
Most U. S. Army Veterans had exposure 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 with exposure to asbestos secondhand are also developing Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases.
Army 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 1920s but hid this information from the public, the medical community, and even the U.S. Military. Instead of disclosing this fatal information, they 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.
