USS Frontier (AD-25) Areas With Asbestos Exposure

The USS Frontier (AD-25) was a Klondike-class destroyer tender launched on March 25, 1945. It was commissioned on March 2, 1946, under Capt. J. S. Crenshaw’s command with the hull number AD-25 and served in the U.S. Navy for 22 years until it was decommissioned on June 28, 1968. During its activities, the ship carried a complement of 826 people on board and had its main missions in San Diego, Long Beach, Yokosuka, Puget Sound, Melbourne and Pearl Harbor. After decommissioning, the ship was struck from the Navy List on December 1, 1972, and sold for scrapping in 1974. Lawsuits may not be a compensation option for all victims of asbestos exposure. However, there are additional compensation methods such as asbestos trust funds and veterans' benefits with the U.S. military or government. Because of the amount of asbestos lawsuits being filed annually and the number of companies filing bankruptcy, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court established several asbestos trusts to pay victims, their families, and those diagnosed in the future. If you are a victim of asbestos exposure, contact a lawyer to learn your legal options and start your asbestos claim process.
