Asbestos Exposure in Military Personnel
Until its use was discovered to be linked with the development of mesothelioma and other serious diseases, asbestos was commonly used as a building material in a wide variety of different settings throughout most of the 20th century. Unfortunately, many buildings and other structures constructed before this time may still contain unsafe levels of asbestos, placing visitors and others at risk of contracting a dangerous medical condition. This can be particularly true for military personnel.
If you or someone you know has served in the armed forces and developed mesothelioma as a result of asbestos exposure, you may be entitled to seek compensation for medical bills and other damages.

The most significant asbestos exposure risk for military personnel involves naval vessels, particularly large warships, which often contained remarkably high levels of asbestos until recently. However, a number of other serious exposure risks include:
- Boiler rooms
- Mess halls
- Sleeping quarters
These and other potential sources of asbestos exposure can place the health of all military personnel in serious danger.
