A crime comparable to treason: exposing veterans to asbestos

The US Department of Veterans Affairs states that several million people who serviced in World War II were exposed to asbestos. Now, nearly 10,000 Americans die from asbestos every year (EWG).

The tragedy is that most asbestos companies knew about the risks associated with asbestos long before the general public. Internal memos were uncovered that revealed that companies such as Johns-Manville had even contacted their own tests to prove that asbestos was harmful. These companies then hid the information so that they could continue to be profitable (Multinationalmonitor).

Meanwhile, warships, aircraft carriers, automobiles, and gas masks used in the war contained asbestos.  If you or any other family member serviced in the military, and developed an asbestos-related disease, we can help. Weitz & Luxenberg has been handling cases like yours for over twenty years. We can help you in a pursuit for financial compensation. Compensation can cover a range of expenses including all of your medical bills.

If you want the companies responsible for your illness to pay for what they have done, contact us as soon as possible. Simply fill out the form on this page, and we will contact you with a free, legal consultation.

War heroes deserve respect

“Veterans with asbestos-related illnesses find themselves in a unique and troubling situation,” says Matthew, an artillery officer in the New York National Guard (ArmyTimes.com). “they have virtually no avenue to seek compensation from the government…In fact, despite the clear link between asbestos and shipyards, even Veterans Affairs hospitals require veterans with mesothelioma to prove that the disease is linked to their service in order to qualify for VA benefits.”

The companies that managed asbestos from mining to distribution are now responsible for the illnesses that the substance caused. Fortunately, many of them were insured and some have set up trust funds specifically to use for compensating people such as yourself or your family members.

How to get compensated

When pursuing financial compensation, it is best to have a good lawyer or team of lawyers by your side. Asbestos companies have very good lawyers working from them, and they will intentionally try to ask questions that invalid your claim. Weitz & Luxenberg knows how to counter this. We have the time and resources to uncover documents and other pieces of hard evidence proving that your illness was caused by asbestos. We can even prove which companies’ asbestos you were exposed to, when, and where.

Because Weitz & Luxenberg is a major law firm with decades of asbestos case experience, we can proceed at your own pace. We will be able to organize your case, keep you up-to-date on deadlines, and know the right actions to take in order to best help you pursue compensation.
