However, there’s no way you could have known that manufacturers of asbestos-containing products were slowly killing you at the same time. They knew it — and they didn’t care.
Unfortunately, greedy companies putting servicemen and women at risk is nothing new.
When the danger is clear — think of firearms that jam, armored personnel carriers and other vehicles lacking in armor, body armor needing to be recalled — corrective action happens fairly quickly. But what about when the danger isn’t as obvious?
For decades, the barracks in which our warriors sleep, buildings in which they work, the ships and subs with which they fight — all have been infested with a silent killer, asbestos.
Manufacturers of asbestos-containing products took advantage of the military, put profits ahead of the health and safety of the very men and women who kept them and their way of life safe. Now, because of these manufacturers, many brave veterans have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, a rare and deadly form of cancer directly related to asbestos exposure.
It’s time to fight again — but this time, for justice! We’ll make those companies pay for what they have done to you and your family.
An estimated $30 Billion in court-ordered trust money has been set aside to pay out claims for asbestos victims and their families — and the Center for Veteran Justice makes sure veterans with mesothelioma get their fair share. The manufacturers of asbestos-containing products traded your health for cold, hard cash — get the money you deserve from them. It is the least they can do to compensate you and your family.
All branches of the U.S. military may have been affected by asbestos, but those who served in the U.S. Navy are at the highest risk for developing mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. In fact, approximately 1/3rd of all mesothelioma cases have been shown to involve U.S. Navy or shipyard exposures. Asbestos was used in a variety of products due to its strength and resistance to heat — including nearly every naval vessel built between 1930 and the late 1970s.
The U.S. Military is not to blame — this was done by greedy corporations. Our fight is with them, not the government.
If you file a claim, it is placed against the manufacturers of asbestos-containing products who knew they were killing you — not the U.S. government or military. Additionally, filing an asbestos claim will NOT impact your VA benefits.
If you or a loved one was diagnosed with mesothelioma, you could be entitled to compensation. Contact the Center for Veteran Justice to learn more and receive a free, no obligation legal consultation.
