Asbestos in Shipyards

List Of Naval Bases And U.S. Shipyards With Documented Asbestos Exposure

sunset on the portsmouth naval shipyard

Asbestos is highly toxic to humans, yet the material was widely used at shipyards and naval bases for most of the 20th century. Millions of private sector and U.S. Navy shipbuilders were exposed, as recently as the 1970s and 1980s, at facilities from coast to coast. In fact, the list of shipyards not associated with asbestos exposure would be very short.

Does a family member who served in the Navy or worked in the yards have a diagnosis of mesothelioma or symptoms of asbestos disease? In pursuit of compensation, our attorneys excel at identifying shipyards and duty stations where clients would have been exposed to the poisonous substance.

The law firm of The Gori Law Firm, has handled thousands of cases of mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer. Many of our clients served in the Navy, worked in shipbuilding jobs or both. Many sailors and shipbuilders were later exposed to asbestos again in other high-risk occupations for asbestos exposure.

The U.S. Navy knew of the dangers long before it banned asbestos in shipbuilding. For years, in fact, the Navy continued to require the use of asbestos for its fireproofing and insulating qualities in spite of the well-documented health risks. Shipbuilding companies and suppliers of shipmaking materials were happy to comply.

Thousands of people receive the dreaded diagnosis each year, often 30, 40 or even 50 years after asbestos exposure. Contact us for help with the immediate concerns of medical treatment and experienced pursuit of monetary damages.
