You do not need to file a lawsuit to obtain compensation for your exposure to asbestos. There are several different options for people who have been exposed to asbestos and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, or an asbestos-related disease. Currently, there is approximately $30 Billion in bankruptcy trusts set aside for victims of asbestos exposure. It is important to find an experienced mesothelioma attorney who can assist you in either filing a lawsuit or obtaining money from the $30 billion set aside in trust funds in order to get the money you deserve for your illness.
Attorneys only are paid if they successfully settle your claim. If they are unable to get you a settlement, you owe nothing. Compensation for your asbestos-related illness can help pay for your lost wages, medical bills, living expenses and relieve any financial stress. Speak with one of our experienced mesothelioma attorneys for a free legal consultation, they can answer your questions, explain your rights, and provide advice on the next steps to take.
Even if a loved one has already passed from an asbestos-related illness, a spouse or family member may still have legal rights to file a lawsuit or claim.
Veterans from all branches of the United States Armed Forces (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard) are at risk for developing asbestos-related illnesses. Military member's families may also be at risk resulting from the fact that asbestos dust often adheres to military uniforms or clothing and, if worn home, can expose loved ones to the asbestos dust on their clothes, this is especially true for those who may be in charge of laundering them.
The widespread use of asbestos in the military during the 1930s through the late 1970s put many United States service men and women at risk of developing an asbestos-related disease, in particular Navy veterans and shipyard workers. The majority of Navy vessels prior to 1980 were built with hundreds of asbestos-containing products, such as asbestos fireproofing, insulation or lagging on pipes and around boilers, and in gaskets and valve packing.
In addition to seeking compensation from bankruptcy trusts and filing a civil lawsuit, Veterans may file a claim with the Veterans Affairs for developing an asbestos-related disease well after they served in the United States Military. Exposure to asbestos for Veterans typically comes as a result of serving on Naval vessels, living in barracks, working in shipyards, working on aircraft, or being in old buildings. The United States Military used asbestos in many different applications creating a wide variety of opportunities for exposure to those serving in the military.
