Mesothelioma Law Firm Baron & Budd Calls Attention to Veterans Suffering from Asbestos-Related Diseases
Date:11/11/2013

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 11, 2013

Untold numbers of people who served in the U.S. Armed Forces may have been exposed to asbestos during their time in the military, according to the Department of Veteran's Affairs' website, which was last updated in July 2012. On this Veteran’s Day, mesothelioma law firm Baron & Budd is working to raise awareness of the suffering this harmful toxin has caused our servicemen and servicewomen.

According to articles released on the Asbestos Disease Awareness Oranization (ADAO) website on Veteran's Day 2013, the use of asbestos, a material valued for its resistance to heat and low cost, was eventually phased out by the Armed Forces in the 1970s. However, thousands and thousands of people have developed debilitating conditions due to the asbestos exposure they experienced while in the military. One of the most devastating conditions is mesothelioma, a rare and deadly form of cancer that has been directly linked to asbestos exposure. (http://www.asbestosdiseaseawareness.org/archives/24204)

“Our firm is proud to have helped many of our veterans who battled mesothelioma due to asbestos exposure during their time of service,” said Russell Budd, managing director of mesothelioma law firm Baron & Budd. “As we honor our servicemen and servicewomen on Veteran’s Day, we also continue to fight on their behalf.”

It is very important to note that our mesothelioma attorneys do not sue the U.S. military. We instead pursue the manufacturers responsible for producing the asbestos-containing products that were sold to the military, subsequently putting the health of our heroes at risk. When our mesothelioma lawyers represent someone who suffered asbestos exposure during military service, we take action against the manufacturers who knowingly hid the dangers of asbestos from the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines.

Sadly, the U.S. Navy has been the most affected branch of the Armed Forces, and Baron & Budd has represented numerous Naval veterans, including the family of Admiral Elmo Zumwalt, Jr., who served as Chief of Naval Operations during the 1970s.

The U.S. Army used asbestos when constructing installations that housed soldiers. The toxin has been found in nearly every portion of these installations, from the roof to the flooring to the plumbing system. Even though asbestos use was discontinued in the military in the 1970s, asbestos has been found in many older installations as recently as the 1990s, according to articles on the Mesothelioma News website published in 2012.
