For veterans of the U.S. navy, asbestos exposure poses a real risk of serious illness. Asbestos can cause mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer decades after a navy veteran worked with or near the dangerous substance. Asbestos was widely used in the U.S. navy from the 1930s until the 1970s. It was used in the building of ships and in the brakes, clutches and gaskets, for example. Some of these asbestos laden ships are still in use today. Therefore, for all veterans of the U.S. Navy, asbestos and its often fatal side effects are a real concern.
The lawyers of Pasternak & Zirgibel honor the United States Navy Veterans who have served our nation and are committed to helping them seek justice in the nation which they so bravely defended. We have successfully represented plaintiffs in U.S. Navy asbestos cases in the past and we welcome your inquiry if you, or a family member, is also suffering from the effects of asbestos.
How to Seek Justice in a U.S. Navy Asbestos Case
United States Navy Veterans, who are suffering from an asbestos related disease, or their surviving family members, should consult with a Milwaukee asbestos attorney for a free consultation as soon as possible after being diagnosed with mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer. You have three years from the time you were diagnosed, or should have known about your disease, to file an asbestos lawsuit.
Veterans May be Entitled to Damages in U.S. Navy Asbestos Cases
Possible damages in U.S. Navy asbestos cases include compensation for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering and other damages as negotiated by the parties or awarded in court. Since these costs vary depending on the length of a person’s illness, their age and other factors, it is not possible to estimate a damage award that would be applicable to every case. However, many U.S. Navy asbestos cases have resulted in multimillion dollar awards and your attorney can give you more information based on the specific facts of your case.
