For most of the 20th century, asbestos was widely used in the U.S. Navy, both in the shipyards were the vessels were built and onboard in a wide array of applications. This resulted in widespread asbestos exposure among Navy veterans, in many cases leading to disastrous health consequences in the decades that followed. Often, the disease remains undetected for a period of 20 to 50 years before resulting in a terminal diagnosis.
Today, substantial financial compensation is available for many Navy veterans who have suffered ill effects of asbestos exposure, as well as for the surviving family members of those who have died. We have extensive experience representing clients in these cases and have recently published a white paper to help you learn about the issues.
In our new white paper, which is titled A Continuing Threat: How The Deadly Legacy Of Asbestos Haunts Navy Veterans Today, we discuss:
- How to tell if you or a loved one is in a high-risk category
- What options are available if you decide to seek compensation
- How to avoid common mistakes that could compromise your legal rights
