Navy veterans may get a free asbestos lawsuit review by completing the form on this page, and may also request a free copy of our asbestos sourcebook.
Veterans were continually exposed to the dangers of inhaling asbestos, but
the workers who tore apart defunct ships, or did repairs at Navy yards were at
the greatest risk for developing an asbestos-related disease. Due to asbestos in pipes, no place aboard Navy ships was
safe, including sleeping quarters, mess halls and navigation
Vets At Risk for Asbestos Disease
Because of the decades-long latency periods (the time between exposure and when an illness is first detected or diagnosed), the men and women who have long since retired from active military service may not discover they have been diagnosed with a serious asbestos-related illness such as mesothelioma cancer, asbestos-related lung cancer and asbestosis until 30-40 years or longer.
Weitz & Luxenberg Can Help Navy Veterans with Asbestos Disease
For over 20 years, countless Navy veterans and their families have chosen our highly-experienced asbestos lawyers to help them seek justice from the companies responsible for their illness.
We're also ready to help your family by filing a lawsuit on your behalf to recover damages for asbestos disease, pain and suffering and to help offset the costs of medical bills and other expenses.
Your Time is Limited To Seek Compensation
Even though your loved one's asbestos exposure happened many years ago, once they have been diagnosed with an asbestos disease they are able to file a lawsuit. However, that right does not last indefinitely because of the statute of limitations in each state. While a family's first priority is their loved one's healthcare, it is also important to consider your legal options before the time in which to file a lawsuit has passed.
