Shipyard Asbestos Exposure

Shipyard Employee Mesothelioma Attorneys

One of the most at-risk groups of workers is that of shipyard workers. As long as there is a ship with asbestos being used or taken apart, the risk will remain for shipyard workers across the United States, including those in California, Washington state, New York, Maine, Boston, Florida, Louisiana and Hawaii.

Asbestos was used in multiple parts of U.S. Navy ships, particularly as insulation. As a result, anyone who was involved in building the ships, operating the ships, renovating the ships or taking apart the ships was placed at risk for asbestos exposure. During the World War II era, tens of thousands of shipyard workers were exposed to dangerous asbestos dust and now run the risk of developing mesothelioma.
