Help For Our VAs In IL



There are a number of benefits that have been created for members of the American armed forces. An updated list of the facilities in Illinois is located here.

Lauded for pioneering asbestos cases, Weitz & Luxenberg won a noteworthy consolidated trial in 1991 concerning men who had worked at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in the 1940s and 1950s.

Our firm dealt with 36 clients in that case and secured $75 million. Another case yielded a $64.65 million award for four asbestos plaintiffs in 1996 (NY, docket # 10893/95), and, in 2002, the firm won a $53 million decision in New York for a brake mechanic suffering from mesothelioma (docket No. 12658-00). The firm has recovered hundreds of millions more for its clients, many of whom formed the base of the triumphant Allied war effort in the second World War.

Made up of oxygen, hydrogen, silicon, and other metals, asbestos is classified as a mineral. Fibers made of asbestos are strong, flexible and not flammable. Asbestos also insulates very well and doesn't break down easily. Asbestos has been used in older plastics, paper products and floor tiles. Usually, asbestos fibers are joined with a matter that holds them together, producing asbestos containing material, otherwise known as ACM. Many industrial products are created with ACM, such as sealants, cement pipe and insulation.

Those Americans worked in the armed forces and were exposed to asbestos for an extended amount of time unaware of the fact that this could one day lead to the mortal disease: mesothelioma.
