Asbestos and the National Guard

The United States National Guard works under significantly different standards than the rest of the military. Although trained and armed similarly to the main branches of the military, the National Guard often sees deployment in times of emergency when the Army is occupied with other problems. Additionally, domestic emergency rescue operations are generally reserved for the National Guard. However, with these various responsibilities, there may be a heightened risk of mesothelioma due to asbestos exposure.

If you have been exposed to asbestos, contact the mesothelioma attorneys of Williams Hart at 800-781-3955 today to learn more about your legal rights.

Exposure in Times of Crisis

The National Guard has been deployed in a wide range of situations, seeing duty as crowd control during major riots and as a rescue team when a natural disaster strikes. As a result of this type of work, these service members may see regular exposure to asbestos. Consider the following sources of asbestos in the line of duty:

  • In barracks
  • On ships
  • Dust clouds in emergency situations
  • Wreckage from natural disasters

Although these soldiers use safety equipment when necessary, the particles from asbestos may find a way through protective masks or linger on the surface of clothing. As a result, these service members may have suffered through increased chances of developing mesothelioma. Even in modern-day deployment, asbestos can be encountered in foreign deployments or in the wreckage of older buildings.

As our service members offer their time and put their health at risk for our safety, there is no reason why these soldiers should not receive help when they need it. To learn more about what legal options are available if you have served and developed mesothelioma, contact the mesothelioma lawyers of Williams Hart today by calling 800-781-3955.
