Military Railroad Workers and Mesothelioma Claims

We Help Military Railroad Workers with Mesothelioma Lawsuits in all 50 States

Military Railroad Workers that have been diagnosed with 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.

Military Railroad Workers 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 to be insulated 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 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.

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.

Veterans and Asbestos Exposure

The U. S. Armed Forces used asbestos-containing products in ships, aircraft, buildings, military bases, 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.

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.
  • 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.
  • 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. 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 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.

Army 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.

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 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
