You may have discovered that long after retiring from the U.S. Navy, you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestos lung cancer. It can take several decades before mesothelioma surfaces. Often individuals can develop mesothelioma or lung cancer with only a small amount of asbestos exposure obtained while serving in the U.S. Navy.
Used within the boiler rooms of Navy ships, asbestos was widely used before the 1970's. Anyone who worked within a Naval ship whether aboard serving their country or a shipyard worker who themselves helped build these ships were likely exposed to asbestos. It is because of exposure to asbestos while serving within the Navy that patients or their family members have the right to sue the manufacturers of asbestos (we will not be taking any legal action against the government or the Navy).
The hazards of asbestos were known for over a century by both the manufacturers and the insurance companies, yet it was hidden from public knowledge.
