Asbestos Exposure on Submarines: VA Claims & Lawsuit Assistance
Submarines have been built to very demanding specifications to complete a variety of missions. Because subs must be fire resistant, compact in design and (above all) operate quietly, they contained significant amounts of Asbestos. Also, the air on a submarine is recirculated making any asbestos contamination even more dangerous. Any submarine built or repaired before the mid-1980s used Asbestos insulation, soundproofing, and electrical components.
If you or your loved one served on a submarine, 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 submarine. 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.
