Navy veterans make up a significant portion of the 2,500 to 3,000 U.S. citizens who will be diagnosed with mesothelioma each year.
The Mesothelioma Compensation Center seeks to help individuals diagnosed with mesothelioma, especially Navy veterans, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, public utility workers, hydro-electric workers, chemical plant workers, nuclear power plant workers, manufacturing workers, oil and gas field production workers, plumbers, electricians, millwrights, pipefitters and welders.
These individuals are especially susceptible to mesothelioma because of their exposure to nuclear reactors and asbestos exposure between the 1950s and 1980s.
Veterans are encouraged to contact the Mesothelioma Compensation Center at 800-714-0303 or via their website to receive legal help. If no financial settlement results, there is no charge for their services.
