Brakes / Clutches

After giving years of their time and hard work to their country, veterans should be able to rest and enjoy civilian life. Unfortunately, this is not always an option. Many service members who were exposed to asbestos during their time in the military are only now learning of the serious consequences.

Veterans’ mesothelioma attorneys Williams Hart are dedicated to helping injured soldiers and their families as much as we can. Contact our offices at 800-781-3955 to learn about the legal services we offer.

Asbestos in Military Vehicles

Until the 1970’s, every branch of the armed forces used asbestos to construct many different items. Anyone who worked for the military or lived on a military base could be exposed to this dangerous substance through pipe insulation, roofing tiles, boiler rooms, and more. Even the vehicles people drove were not safe.

Asbestos was a common component in the brakes and clutches of military vehicles. Since asbestos is only dangerous when flakes or fibers are allowed to break off, people who drove these vehicles for short periods of time may not be at risk for mesothelioma. However, anyone who installed or repaired brake pads or clutches may have inhaled deadly asbestos fibers.

The risks of asbestos use were scientifically established by the 1950’s. Tragically, the US government decided these risks were acceptable, and continued using the deadly substance to manufacture military buildings and vehicles. Soldiers and construction workers were not even warned about the threat surrounding them.

Today, many veterans with mesothelioma and their families are seeking fair compensation for this betrayal. If you are among them, an experienced mesothelioma attorney can inform you of your rights and options.
