$2 Million for Navy Veteran Who Died Year After Mesothelioma Diagnosis

Our client served in the United States Navy aboard the USS Lake Champlain in the 1950s.  During his service, he worked in the ship's boiler room, engine room and generator room and was exposed to asbestos on steam lines, boilders, turbines, generators and other equipment.  He was diagnosed with malignant pleural mesothelioma at the age of 75 and died a year later.  Various defendants paid more than $2 million to settle the case before trial.
