Mesothelioma & the Military

Dallas Mesothelioma Attorney Serving Veterans

Military veterans—particularly veterans who served between World War II and the Vietnam War—are at an elevated risk for developing mesothelioma as a result of their exposure to high levels of asbestos contamination. Unfortunately, due to the limitations imposed on veterans, obtaining compensation for medical treatment and suffering is challenging.

For decades, our firm has handled tough cases—let us see what we can do for you. Schedule a free consultation with us today.

Helping Military Personnel Obtain Benefits for
Mesothelioma Treatment

The federal government is immune to claims filed by veterans involving negligent exposure to asbestos that caused a veteran's mesothelioma or other asbestos disease. Rather, veterans must pursue veteran’s benefits or other sources of liability. Our Dallas asbestos litigation attorneys at Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP, help veterans pursue the VA disability benefits to which they are entitled. Additionally, we thoroughly investigate other sources of financial responsibility, such as product manufacturers and suppliers that provided materials containing asbestos to the government.

Veterans at Risk of Developing Mesothelioma

Because asbestos is resistant to heat, fire, water damage, and erosion, it was used in virtually every manner possible in battleships, cruisers, destroyer ships, destroyer escorts, submarines, and other naval ships between 1930 and 1970. As a result, sailors and shipyard workers who served during this time are at high risk of developing mesothelioma due to their asbestos exposure.

Asbestos was primarily used for insulation and fireproofing. Examples of products and materials used by the Navy that contained asbestos include:

  • Pipe-fittings
  • Joint compound
  • High temperature gaskets
  • Cement and cement pipes
  • Boiler insulation and other insulation materials
