Did your time with the Navy lead to a mesothelioma diagnosis?
Did your time in the Navy cause Mesothelioma? We invite you to discuss your situation with an asbestos lawyer.
Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer frequently caused by asbestos exposure. There is a higher incidence of mesothelioma among U.S. Navy personnel and shipyard workers due to asbestos exposure on Navy ships.
According to a U.S. senator, one-third of all mesothelioma patients in the United States are retired Navy seamen with mesothelioma.
Family members and others closely associated to those exposed to asbestos can also be at risk (for example the wife who washed her husband's work clothes).
The cancer typically has a latency period of 20 to 50 years.
Weitz & Luxenberg is a leading plaintiffs' law firm that has represented people affected by mesothelioma for over 20 years.
Men and women diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure may be entitled to compensation from the companies responsible for their disease.
