Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Urges Navy Veterans With Mesothelioma Due to Asbestos Exposure in the Gator Navy to Call About Lawyers Who Get Better Compensation Settlements


The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “The Gator Navy is an integral part of the US Navy because it allows US Marines to get to where they are supposed to be to protect our national interests. Our number one passion is seeing to it that US Navy Veterans or Marine Corps Veterans who were exposed to asbestos on a navy ship and now have mesothelioma receive the very best possible financial compensation.

“The way we help US Navy or Marine Corps Veterans who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma receive the very best possible compensation is we see to it that they have on-the-spot access to the nation’s most skilled and capable mesothelioma attorneys as we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303. The Gator Navy is our navy’s amphibious fleet.” http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

“It is well documented that US Navy Veterans were exposed to asbestos prior to the 1990s. However, US Marines are rarely mentioned in conjunction with US Navy Veterans when it comes to asbestos exposure on navy ships. If US Marines were on a navy ship there is a very good chance that they could have been exposed to asbestos. Marines would have typically been in enclosed areas of a navy ship while the ship was underway and if repairs or maintenance was ongoing the Marines would have had exposure to asbestos just like everyone else in that area of the ship.

“Before any US Navy Veteran or US Marine who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma hires a lawyer or law firm to assist with a mesothelioma compensation claim, they are urged to call the Mesothelioma Victims Center at 800-714-0303 for on-the-spot access to some of the most skilled, experienced, and qualified mesothelioma attorneys in the United States. For a mesothelioma compensation claim involving asbestos exposure on a US Navy Ship you want the nation’s most capable attorneys, it’s as simple as that.” http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Each year about 3,000 US citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos. High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, steel mill workers, miners, manufacturing workers, pulp or paper mill workers, millwrights, welders, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, construction workers, rail road workers, and firemen. Typically, the exposure to asbestos for these types of workers occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s.

The average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is about 70 years old. Frequently victims of mesothelioma are initially misdiagnosed with pneumonia. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

According to the CDC, the states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon.

However, based on the calls the Mesothelioma Victims Center receives a US Navy Veteran with confirmed mesothelioma could live in any state including New York, Florida, California, Texas, Illinois, Ohio, Iowa, Indiana, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Idaho, or Alaska.

The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “As we would like to explain anytime at 800-714-0303 if a person who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma wants the best possible compensation it is vital they have the nation’s most skilled, and experienced mesothelioma lawyers.” http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

    I have a 58-year-old brother named Bill, who was in the US Navy from August 1981 through August 1985. He was stationed on the USS Benjamin Stoddert at Pearl Harbor as a hull technician, for the entirety of his service.
    From 1981 to 1983 the ship underwent a retrofit while dry docked at Pearl Harbor. Bill’s daily duties as a hull tech, placed him in the belly of the ship. He was tasked with removing the old plumbing, bulkheads, electrical, and the accompanying insulation for all the above. For over a two-year period, Bill had daily exposure to, and hands-on contact with, asbestos in all kinds of different forms. Bill and his crew mates removed literally hundreds of tons of asbestos during this time period, all of which was done without a single warning as to the severe health risks that where likely to manifest as disease later in his life.
    In 1984, following the two years drydock period wherein Bill had been working with Asbestos, the ships hull was quarantined. Signs were posted with orders stating “do not enter, extremely hazards”. Posted after the fact. After all the waste had been previously removed by Bill and his colleagues.
    During the time of the removal, and prior to posting any of the subsequent warning signs, Bill was asked to perform his tasks without any briefing on the sever health risks. Moreover, there were no provisions offered from the Navy regarding preventative measures like respirators to filter the toxic fibers, not even a surgical mask.
    For most of his life, none of these facts meant anything to Bill and were mostly forgotten. He attributed the deterioration of his health, including his chronic shortness of breath, to age and the facts of life.
    Now almost 40 years later, it appears as if Bill is suffering from the fate put to him by the US Navy in the hull of that ship.
    Two years ago, Bill suffered an off roading accident which resulted in some broken, ribs, a fractured wrist and a fractured ankle and various other contusions. He was taken to Providence Hospital in Medford Oregon, where he was treated in the emergency room, for his trauma which included a CT scan ordered to evaluate his ribs. The CT scan revealed a pre-existing condition previously unknown to Bill, called atelectasis. The Doctor informed Bill that this condition was serious and would require follow up exams, a lung biopsy and further treatment all of which could be handled at the VA and covered by his military benefits.
    The following days after Bills ER treatment and diagnosis, he called the VA and started making arrangements for follow up treatment. After reviewing his case, the MD assigned to Bill, informed him regarding the results of the Providence CT scan, that there was an anomaly CT scan taken at Providence Hospital, the basis for the ER doctor’s incorrect diagnosis of atelectasis. Furthermore, that there was no need for any lung biopsy as the condition for which it was called for was non-existent.
    Not entirely satisfied with the second opinion Bill received at the VA, he then when on to the internet and did a google search to find out just what was atelectasis and what were likely causes for the condition. His research revealed that atelectasis was caused by mesothelioma,
    caused by exposure to asbestos.
    For the last two years Bill has been getting the run around at the VA and has yet to receive any treatment or be taken seriously by any of the VA physicians or staff. I am writing you on Bills behalf to ask that your law firm interview Bill, and fight for his rights that are being flat denied by the government under which her served his country. He has had no prior contact with any attorneys. We chose your firm for its current involvement representing other people suffering from Mesothelioma and respectfully request that your take a look at Bills case.
    Two weeks ago, Bill’s health took another turn in the progression of this disease. He came down with Pneumonia and had to be taken to the hospital by ambulance where he nearly died.
    Please reply by email with a contact name and number that Bill can use to call and arrange an interview with you. The treatment he has received this far is a travesty and not how a veteran should be treated for serving his country.
    The best email to reach Bill is through me at this initial stage. I can be reached at and by phone at 541-659-4769. I will pass along any information to Bill who is anxious to get started on a remedy to this matter.

    Thank you,
