For decades, asbestos was used in United States Navy and Merchant Marine ships to insulate boilers, pipes, turbines, pumps, engines, incinerators and other heat-sensitive areas. Many seamen and officers aboard these ships were exposed to asbestos. The close confines of naval vessels served to concentrate asbestos fibers. As a result, Navy veterans face increased risk of asbestos-related diseases, 30, 40 or even 70 years after the completion of their service.
If you are a Navy veteran who has contracted an asbestos-related disease such as mesothelioma, lung cancer or asbestosis, you may be eligible for compensation. You should speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
