“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
