Navy Veterans Mesothelioma


Navy Veterans and Mesothelioma Cancer

The U. S. Navy has the highest rate of diagnosed Mesothelioma cases among its veterans than any other branch of military service.

If you are a Navy Veteran and exposed to asbestos between 1930-1980, your risk of developing mesothelioma is seven times that of people in the general population. 

Asbestos Exposure in the Navy 

U.S. Navy vessels contained more than 300 asbestos products and materials. There are approximately 25 million U. S veterans who were exposed to asbestos and are at risk of developing Mesothelioma cancer. 

The latency period for asbestos cancer to develop can be 10-50 years after your initial exposure. 1 in 3 Navy veterans will develop an asbestos-related disease in their lifetime.

14 in 1000 WW2 shipyard workers died of an asbestos-related disease compared to 18 in 1000 combat-related deaths.

When Did the Military Know About Asbestos Exposure?

The Navy’s Surgeon General described in his 1929 annual report, “Hazards of Asbestosis” that the cause of asbestosis is extended asbestos exposure to military veterans yet the Navy continued its use of toxic asbestos for 40 more years. 

U. S. Courts are now holding asbestos companies and distributors that exposed veterans to deadly asbestos dust and fibers accountable by awarding Mesothelioma victims large settlements for their pain and suffering.

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 did the laundry for a worker would have been 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). 

Malignant Mesothelioma primarily occurs in patients between the ages of 55-75.

5-Mesothelioma Statute of Limitations

Statutes of Limitations is the time a Mesothelioma victim has to file a lawsuit. 

The Statute of Limitations for Mesothelioma and asbestos exposure varies from state to state.

The Statute of Limitations for Mesothelioma begins when a person is either diagnosed or dies, not the date of their exposure.

An experienced Mesothelioma attorney can help you file a claim before your Statutes of Limitations expires.
