Before its dangers were widely known, one of the most popular uses for asbestos was insulation. Its strength and heat resistance made it seem like the ideal material for this purpose. Ships and shipyards in particular were filled with asbestos insulation. One tragic outcome of this mistake is the high number of Navy veterans who have developed serious illnesses like mesothelioma.

Asbestos lawyers Williams Hart believe that veterans who were exposed to this dangerous substance while serving their countries deserve compensation. Contact us at 800-781-3955 to discuss your legal options.

How Military Asbestos Exposure Occurred

Members of the Navy were at the highest risk of asbestos exposure prior to the 1970’s. However, members of every branch of the military are at risk. The armed forces used asbestos insulation for a variety of materials, including:

  • Pipes on aircraft and ships
  • Ships’ boiler rooms
  • Walls and attics on military bases and shipyards
  • Floor and ceiling tiles
  • Many kinds of machinery

While the use of asbestos has declined in recent decades, buildings, aircraft, and ships constructed prior to the 1970’s may still contain asbestos insulation. If your employer has exposed you to this dangerous material despite knowing its risks, mesothelioma attorneys Williams Hart can help.

Tragic Lies, Tragic Consequences

The saddest fact about asbestos is that workers did not learn about its dangers at the same time as their employers. Many employers, including the US government, chose to keep the dangers of asbestos hidden even when they knew workers’ lives were at risk.

If the Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard concealed information about asbestos from you, you may have grounds for a mesothelioma lawsuit.
