U. S. Marine Veterans Mesothelioma Lawsuits
We Help U. S. Marine Veterans with Mesothelioma Lawsuits in all 50 States
U. S. Marine Veterans that have a Mesothelioma diagnosis or any Asbestos-related diseases may be eligible to receive compensation from responsible asbestos companies and manufacturers.
U. S. Marine Veterans who served in the Armed Forces are being diagnosed with Mesothelioma 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.
From the 1930s until 1980, many U.S. Marine planes, bases, vehicles, and barracks underwent construction with parts containing asbestos, such as engines, brakes, wiring, and other insulating materials. Asbestos was used in U. S. base buildings and base housing used by U. S. Marine service members and their families.
U. S. Marines and Asbestos Exposure
- The U. S. Marines and the Navy have been working together since the inception of this America’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.
- The Department of Veterans Affairs states that there are over 25 million Americans that have previously served in the U.S. Military.
- U. S. Marine base at Camp Pendleton in California had an Asbestos contamination problem.
- The American Cancer Society reported U. S. Marines were exposed to toxic asbestos products for decades in older Marine barracks.
- Asbestos was at the top of a list of contaminants at 32 U.S. Army bases before they were closed in the late 1990s.
- Tests done at the U. S. Marine Camp Grainger, Tarawa Terrace (1 & 2), and Camp LeJeune found asbestos present, but a variety of other Asbestos-containing products and materials were present.
Many U. S. Marine Veterans diagnosed with Mesothelioma have complained that they did not receive any warning, training, or respiratory protective gear when handling, installing, loading, repairing, or removing asbestos-containing products.
The Navy Surgeon General became aware in 1939 that the cause of asbestosis is 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.
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 by awarding mesothelioma victims large settlements for their pain and suffering.

U. S Veterans and Asbestos Exposure
Asbestos is most dangerous when inhaled or ingested. Most U. S. Marine 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. Marine Veterans were exposed daily to toxic asbestos dust and fibers where they inhaled and ingested them without any protection in their workplace. Families of workers and other Most military veterans that were exposed to asbestos secondhand are also developing Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases.
Military Veterans Have the Right to sue Manufacturers that exposed them to Asbestos.

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.
- Asbestos was used by the U. S. Military in more than 300 different materials and products.
- Millions of U. S. Veterans have had exposure 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 1970s.
- 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 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 confined quarters have had asbestos exposure.
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. 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.

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.

In most states, the Statute of Limitations is 2-3 years. Some states have a 6-year Statute of Limitations.
