Veterans and Mesothelioma We're Making a Difference.

Veterans and Mesothelioma

Serving Those Who Have Served Our Country

Many individuals who have been or will be diagnosed with mesothelioma were exposed to asbestos during their time in the military. These veterans fought for and served our country, but rather than being honored, they were dealt the devastating hand of a mesothelioma diagnosis.

Asbestos on Navy Ships

Hundreds of products commonplace to U.S. Navy ships, such as pipe coverings and valves, were manufactured using the substance asbestos. This is true of most Navy vessels manufactured before 1980.

Asbestos was cheap, insulated well, and was resistant to heat and many chemicals, making it a sought-after material for building Navy ships. Sadly, this resulted in many veterans who worked in shipyards, boiler rooms, and other areas within or near ships eventually being diagnosed with mesothelioma.

1 in 3 Mesothelioma Patients Are Veterans

Approximately 30% of all people diagnosed with mesothelioma are veterans. Asbestos was prevalent in the U.S. Navy, but it was also commonplace in other branches of the military, such as the Air Force, Army, and the Marines. The U.S. Air Force used asbestos in many capacities around their bases as well as in planes, the Army used asbestos in barracks, mess halls, and vehicles, and the Marine Corps used asbestos to manufacture everything from airplanes to armored vehicles.

The military stopped using asbestos in large part in the 1970s, but by then it was too late for many individuals. If you or someone you love is a veteran and potentially exposed to asbestos in that capacity, we invite you to contact our mesothelioma lawyers today so that we can review your case.
