We Do Not Sue the Military or the U. S. 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 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.

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!
