20+ Years Experience Helping Veterans With Mesothelioma Claims
U.S. Navy Transport Ships contained more than 300 asbestos-containing products and materials that were used regularly in the constructions of ships until 1980. Thousands of military veterans served on U. S. Navy ships with the peak exposure years from 1940-1980.
Shipyard workers are one of the highest risk groups for developing Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related cancers. Asbestos is used in shipbuilding because of its heat resistance and fire-proof properties.
Shipyard workers insulated pipes, incinerators, boilers, steam pipes, water pipes, electrical wiring, breathed, ingested and inhaled toxic asbestos dust and fibers. Shipyard tasks with massive asbestos exposure include painting, plumbing, repairing, installing, welding and insulating on shipyard job sites.
1 out of 3 veterans will develop an asbestos-related disease in their lifetime.
During the construction and repair of Navy ships and other large navy vessels, shipyard workers that worked around these products are at a high risk of developing Mesothelioma.

What Causes Mesothelioma?
The cause of Mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos materials and products. Mesothelioma is a rare and deadly type of cancer that develops in the lining of the lungs, stomach (abdomen), and the heart sac. When a person breathes, inhales, or ingests microscopic asbestos fibers they can stay dormant in the body for 10-50 years before manifesting cancer symptoms.
Who is Most Likely to Get Mesothelioma?
The average age of a person diagnosed with Mesothelioma is 69 years old. People most likely to get diagnosed with Mesothelioma have worked around asbestos or may have done the laundry for a worker that was exposed.
About 3,500 people will be diagnosed with malignant Mesothelioma each year in the U. S., and more than 15,000 Americans will be diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease (asbestos lung cancer, asbestosis).
Veterans exposed to asbestos are seven times more likely to die of an Asbestos caused disease than the general population.
