Navy Bases and Mesothelioma Claims

Navy Veterans that were stationed on Navy bases are being diagnosed with Mesothelioma and other Asbestos-related diseases each year in the U. S. All branches of the U. S. Military used asbestos during the 20th Century with peak years being 1930-1980 because of it fire-retardant properties. Not only was Navy personnel exposed to asbestos but their family members as well. Nearly all Navy Bases were constructed with hundreds of asbestos-containing products that put Navy personnel and their families at increased risk of asbestos exposure.

Asbestos-containing products and materials used to construct Navy and Army Bases have been authenticated by United States Government studies by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) at Burns Radar Station regarding on-base housing in 2002. Nearly all Navy Bases provided by the U. S. Government contained asbestos-containing products and materials.

Asbestos Exposure in the Navy

The U.S. Navy has gone to great lengths in recent years to guard against asbestos exposure. Asbestos Manufacturing Companies are Responsible for your asbestos exposure – Not the Navy!

U. S. Military Command acknowledged the asbestos hazard in August 1986 when they adopted the Asbestos GRADE (Guidance for Rating and Assessing Damage and Exposure) system to prioritize asbestos abatement in their bases and buildings.

In 1973, studies by the (EPA) officially linked asbestos exposure to Mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis, and other asbestos related diseases. The Defense Department stopped using asbestos for new base construction and in Navy equipment in 1980, but many older Navy installations still contain large amounts of the asbestos cancer-causing material.

Thousands of Navy 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.

We Do Not Sue the Military or the Government

Asbestos related cancers among Navy Veterans is 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 and your family to deadly asbestos products.

Navy 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.
