NEW YORK, NY, February 21, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “We are now placing a huge emphasis on US Navy Veterans who have been exposed to asbestos on a nuclear-powered submarine and now have mesothelioma as the compensation can be significant for these types of people. We are specifically urging a Navy Veteran with mesothelioma to call us at 800-714-0303 if they were a crew member on a Los Angeles Class, Ohio Class, James Madison Class, Sturgeon Class, the Permit Class, or the Benjamin Franklin Class of nuclear powered navy submarine.
“What makes a nuclear-powered submarine unique is they do not need to surface for very, very long periods of time. The materials commonly used on these vessels contained asbestos. If a major repair happened while the submarine was on patrol, it would not have been just the maintenance crew that would have been exposed to asbestos-it would have typically be the submarine’s entire crew.
“What makes a US Navy Submarine Veteran’s mesothelioma compensation claim unique is the lawyers that represent them had better know their way around a US Navy Submarine and have a very thorough knowledge of equipment or parts used on a nuclear submarine that contained asbestos. It is this specific information that becomes the basis of a successful mesothelioma compensation claim.
“If mesothelioma has happened to you and your asbestos exposure occurred on a US Navy Nuclear Submarine, please call us anytime at 800-714-03003 for a free financial compensation claim analysis from some of the most skilled mesothelioma attorneys in the nation– don’t settle for less.” http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
