20+ Years Experience Helping Veterans With Mesothelioma Claims
U.S. Navy Cargo 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.
There are approximately 25 million veterans in the United States. Veterans exposed to asbestos are at risk of developing Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. The latency period for asbestos cancer can be 10-50 years after your initial exposure.
1 out of 3 veterans will develop an asbestos-related disease in their lifetime.
Asbestos products onboard Navy Cargo include insulation, pipes, boilers, cement, sealers, gaskets, cables, tubes, valves, electrical fixtures, wiring, pumps, decking, paints, non-skid flooring, and in bulk headwalls, ship hulls, mess halls, engine rooms, navigation rooms, and sleeping quarters.
Navy personnel most at risk include boilermakers, electrician's mates, enginemen, demolition workers, machinist mates, mechanics, metalsmiths, repairmen, pipefitters, ship fitters, technicians, welders, and civilian contractors.
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.
