Millions of Americans served their country bravely in the armed forces from the 1930’s through the 1970’s. They knowingly accepted many different risks to both their mental and physical health. Sadly, many veterans were also exposed to further risks without any warning or safety information. One of these risks was asbestos.

Asbestos lawyers Williams Hart feel that veterans should not be spending their retirement years fighting serious diseases like mesothelioma or lung cancer. We are committed to helping veterans and their families win the compensation they deserve for asbestos exposure. Contact our offices at 800-781-3955.

Asbestos Use in Manufacturing Gaskets

Asbestos was used in the manufacturing of many different products, including gaskets of all kinds. This was especially true in the armed forces, who valued the material’s low cost and durability. Some government officials may have even valued these qualities more than their employees’ safety. Although the dangers of asbestos were established by the 1950’s, its use in the military did not end until the 1970’s.

Navy veterans are especially at risk for mesothelioma and other illnesses. This is because asbestos was used in the production of nearly every part of a ship. In addition, warships of that time had very poor ventilation. However, members of the Navy were not the only soldiers exposed to asbestos; members of all branches of the military were.

If you are a military veteran who was exposed to asbestos during active duty, you may be eligible for compensation for medical expenses, pain, and suffering. An experienced mesothelioma attorney can provide more detailed information.
