Navy Veterans and Mesothelioma Claims
We Help Navy Veterans with Mesothelioma Lawsuits in all 50 States
Navy Veterans diagnosed with Mesothelioma or any Asbestos-related diseases may be eligible to receive compensation from responsible asbestos companies and manufacturers. Navy Veterans who served in the U. S. Armed Forces are increasingly receiving a Mesothelioma diagnosis and other asbestos-related diseases.
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. The Department of Veterans Affairs states that there are over 25 million Americans that have previously served in the U.S. Military.
- Because asbestos can withstand extreme heat, it was used widely throughout the U. S. Military.
- The U. S. Armed Forces used asbestos-containing products in ships, aircraft, buildings, barracks, mess halls, and other military facilities.
- Asbestos was listed at the top of contaminants at 32 U.S. Army bases before closing in the late 1990s.
- Aging and collapsing facilities on Navy bases are still putting our servicemen and women at risk right to this day.
- U. S. Navy Veterans who served in Korea, Vietnam, both Gulf Wars, and those stationed in other conflict zones around the world are at risk of developing an asbestos-related disease in their lifetime.
Many Navy Veterans diagnosed with Mesothelioma have complained that they didn’t receive any warning, training or respiratory protective gear when handling, installing, loading, repairing, or removing asbestos-containing products.
$2.25 Million settlement for a 73-year-old man who developed mesothelioma as a result of being exposed to asbestos as an electrician at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in the 1950s.
U. S. Navy and Asbestos Exposure
In 1939 the Navy’s Surgeon General was aware asbestosis was caused by extended asbestos exposure to Veterans. Still, the Navy continued its use of asbestos for 4 more decades. U. S. regulations on asbestos exposure began in the late 1970s.
Because of its long latency period, asbestos-related diseases like Mesothelioma cancer has made Veterans sick through no fault of their own. U. S. Courts are now 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.

Asbestos Cover Up – Quotes From Asbestos Executives
“…if you have enjoyed a good life while working with asbestos products, why not die from it.” 1966 memo from an executive of the Bendix Corporation (now part of Honeywell)
In the early 1940s, the president of Johns-Manville called the managers of another company “a bunch of fools for notifying employees who had asbestosis.” When asked by another corporation’s representative, “Do you mean to tell me you would let them work until they drop dead?” he responded, “Yes. We save a lot of money that way.”
Navy Veterans and Asbestos Exposure
Asbestos is most dangerous when inhaled or ingested. Most Navy Veterans are particularly at risk because they 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 Navy Veterans had daily exposure to toxic asbestos dust and fibers where they inhaled and ingested them without any protection in their workplace. Families of workers and other Most Navy Veterans exposed to asbestos secondhand are also developing Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases.

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 the U.S. Military.
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

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.
