Military Buildings and Asbestos Exposure

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

Veterans that severed in the U.S. military are being diagnosed with Mesothelioma, Asbestos lung cancer, Asbestosis, and other Asbestos related diseases each year.

U.S. Military Personnel was exposed to asbestos containing products and equipment while serving on duty stations, military bases, depots, buildings, shops, test sites, mess halls, barracks, hospitals command centers and housing complexes.

There are more than 20 million veterans still alive that were exposed to asbestos containing products and equipment during the 20th Century with peak years being 1930-1980 because of its fire-retardant properties.

Women veterans with asbestos exposure are 7 times more likely to die of Asbestos-Related Cancer than people in the general population. The source for most women being diagnosed with malignant Mesothelioma is the result of second-hand asbestos exposure brought home by family members from the workplace or job sites.

Asbestos Trust Funds and Mesothelioma Claims

U. S. Asbestos Bankruptcy Trusts Funds have paid out nearly 21 billion to more than 600,000 asbestos claimants. There are about 60 active Asbestos Trust Funds with an estimated $32 billion in remaining assets.

Asbestos Settlement Trusts were established to help compensate workers and their families for asbestos exposure causing Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. When an Asbestos company establishes a Trust Fund all settlements are managed by trustees that decide the compensation amounts paid to Mesothelioma claimants. U. S. Courts allow Asbestos defendants to file for protection under a legal process known as bankruptcy reorganization. This allows the company to pay claims and stay in business.

Asbestos Trust Fund settlements typically do not come with an admission of guilt by the asbestos company that set up the trust.

If you have a history of asbestos exposure you should be checked each year by a qualified doctor.

We have been helping victims of asbestos exposure and their families for more than 20 years.

If you or a family member has been diagnosed with Malignant Mesothelioma or an Asbestos-related disease, we are here to help you file a claim with an experience Mesothelioma lawyer that will fight for you!

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.

  • A recent study reported that 1 in 3 U. S. Veterans will develop an asbestos-related disease in their lifetime.
  • Most Veterans do not start showing asbestos related symptoms until 10-50 years after their initial exposure.
  • Asbestos was used by the U. S. Military in more than 300 different materials and products.

  • Asbestos was listed as the top contaminant at 32 U.S. Army base closures during the 1990s.
  • There are 21.5 million current living Veterans according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
  • 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 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.

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

Need Help Choosing a Mesothelioma Lawyer?

We have been counseling Veterans and Mesothelioma patients for more than 20 years on the legal and medical sides of Mesothelioma and other asbestos related cancers. A Mesothelioma case can settle in the seven-figure range. Be very careful in choosing a Mesothelioma lawyer to represent you and your family.

Mesothelioma is highly specialized legal field and having an experienced Veterans Mesothelioma lawyer can make a huge 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 negligence of asbestos manufacturers for their loss.

Malignant Mesothelioma Cancer

Malignant Mesothelioma is rare form of cancer that affects lining of the lungs, abdomen, heart, and major organs in the body. Mesothelioma is a disease in which malignant cancer cells are found in the sac lining the chest (pleura) or the abdomen (peritoneum).

There are about 3,000 new malignant Mesothelioma cases diagnosed each year in the U. S. If you are experiencing any Mesothelioma symptoms you should contact a doctor immediately.

Veterans Diagnosed With Mesothelioma?

If you or a family member has been diagnosed with malignant Mesothelioma you are going to have a lot of questions about living with Mesothelioma and what legal options, you have against asbestos manufacturers and asbestos companies for your asbestos exposure. Mesothelioma is a seriously deadly disease.

According to the American Cancer Society with the average survival time for people with Mesothelioma is 4-18 months.

We have seen many families lose their right to file a lawsuit because their Statute of Limitations had expired while they were grieving. We know it is a tough time to grieve the loss of a loved one, but please do not let your Statute of Limitations expire for filing your Mesothelioma lawsuit. In most states the Statute of Limitations is 2-3 years. Some states have 6-year Statute of Limitations.

Mesothelioma Latency Period

Mesothelioma has a long latency period of 10-50 years. Many Veterans, Shipyard Workers, Construction Workers, Power Plant Workers, Mill Workers, Steel Workers, Railroad Workers, Pipefitters, Insulators, Electricians, Carpenters, Welders, Auto Mechanics, Veterans, Factory Workers, and laborers are living in the early stages of a variety of asbestos related diseases.

Many Mesothelioma lawyers will not accept asbestosis, asbestos lung cancer, pleural plaques, pleural thickening, colon cancer and esophageal cancer cases.

There is More Than 30 Billion Dollars Set Aside for Mesothelioma and Asbestos Victims in Asbestos Bankruptcy Trusts
