Two Navy Veterans Win Asbestos Mesothelioma Settlements


This is a settlement for the Asbestos Mesothelioma lawsuit.

New York, NY: The lawsuits of two men who alleged a lifetime of working with asbestos led to their developing mesothelioma, a rare cancer that attacks the lining of the lungs have been successfully settled.

The settlements, consisting of an undisclosed payment said by the firm to be "substantial,"will benefit the families of the men. In a statement issued by attorneys for the plaintiffs, the settlement has come some time after both plaintiffs had already succumbed to lung cancer, with one man showing signs of pleural mesothelioma, a form of cancer closely associated with occupational inhalation of asbestos.

The two men, both long time sheet metal workers, were also Navy veterans. The lawsuits were challenging because although the men served in the Navy and were exposed to asbestos on certain ships or bases, they had no fellow service people who could verify that.
