World War 2 Veterans and Mesothelioma

We Help Navy Veterans with Mesothelioma Lawsuits in all 50 States

World War 2 Veterans that have been diagnosed with Mesothelioma or any Asbestos related diseases you may be eligible to receive compensation from responsible asbestos companies and manufacturers. World War 2 Veterans who served in the U. S. Armed Forces are being diagnosed with Mesothelioma and other asbestos related diseases.

Most Veterans do not start showing asbestos related symptoms until 10-50 years after their initial exposure. Asbestos exposure is responsible for approximately 10,000 deaths each year in the United States.

  • The World War 2 began in June 1941 and ended in late July 1945.
  • More than 405,000 American soldiers were killed in World War 2.
  • Rand Corporation estimates that there would be 432,465 asbestos-related cancer deaths in the U. S. from 1965-2029.
  • Asbestos-containing products and materials were used heavily on Navy and Merchant Marine ships during the World War 2.
  • Because asbestos has an ability to withstand extreme heat, it was used widely throughout the U. S. Military.
  • The U. S. Armed Forces used asbestos-containing products in ships, aircraft, buildings, barracks, mess halls, and other military facilities.
  • The Department of Veterans Affairs states that there are over 25 million Americans that have previously served in the U.S. Military.
  • During the World War 2, asbestos was used by Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines for its heat resistance, versatility and strength.

Asbestos was used in every kind of transportation including; war ships, Merchant marine ships, in tanks, in aircraft on, trucks, jeeps, and other military vehicles during the World War 2.

Many World War 2 Veterans diagnosed with Mesothelioma have complained that they were not given any warning, training or respiratory protective gear when handling, installing, loading, repairing, or removing asbestos-containing products.

The Navy’s Surgeon General became aware In 1939 that asbestosis was being caused by extended asbestos exposure to Veterans yet the Navy continued its use of asbestos for 4 more decades. U. S. regulations on asbestos exposure began in the late 1970s. Because of its long latency period asbestos-related diseases like Mesothelioma cancer has made Veterans sick through no fault of their own. U. S. Courts are now holding asbestos companies and manufacturers that exposed Veterans to the toxic asbestos dust and fibers accountable by awarding mesothelioma victims large settlements for their pain and suffering.

  • Recent studies showed that as many as 30-40% of Mesothelioma victims are U. S. Veterans.
  • Mesothelioma has affected veterans from all branches of service including those who worked in Navy shipyards.
  • The U.S. Military used thousands of asbestos-containing products in their ships between the 1920-late 1970’s.
  • 14 in every 1,000 WW II shipyard workers died of an asbestos-related disease compared to 18 in every 1,000 combat related deaths.
  • Veterans who served between 1940 and 1980 have the greatest risk of developing Mesothelioma or an asbestos-related cancer.

World War 2 Veterans and Asbestos Exposure

Asbestos is most dangerous when inhaled or ingested. Most World War 2 Veterans are particularly at risk because they worked long periods of time in tight, enclosed spaces. It was nearly impossible to avoid coming into to contact with asbestos if you worked on or aboard a World War 2 ships.

World War 2 veterans were daily exposed to toxic asbestos dust and fibers where they inhaled and ingested them without any protection in their workplace. Families of workers and other government contactors that were exposed to asbestos secondhand are also developing Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related disease.
