Asbestos Exposure on Aircraft Carriers: VA Claims & Lawsuit Assistance
Aircraft carriers are a truly a modern marvel of technology and skilled human coordination. They can project military power in almost any corner of the world, while at the same time acting as floating cities for up to six thousand inhabitants. Aircraft Carriers have played a proud and vital role to America's security. They also have military personnel serving aboard from almost every type of job rating in the entire Navy.
Any aircraft carrier built or repaired before the mid-1980s was constructed with a significant amount of Asbestos. The engine room, boiler room and other areas of the carrier that involved propulsion had the highest concentration of asbestos; however, the entire ship is full of literally miles of steam pipe, and thousands of pumps and valves that used asbestos insulation, gasket or packing material.
If you or your loved one served on an aircraft carrier, and have a diagnosis of mesothelioma or lung cancer, then there was asbestos exposure. Given our experience in handling asbestos claims for Navy Veterans, we can pinpoint the products that contained asbestos on your specific aircraft carrier. It is just a question of matching your rating and duties to what we already know about your ship.
Any diagnosis of mesothelioma or lung cancer is likely related to the time that you were serving our country. We thank you for your service and ask that you let us help you and your family obtain the compensation you deserve.
