Questions about Naval Shipyard Asbestos Exposure

What is shipyard asbestos toxic exposure, and how does it happen?

Shipyard asbestos toxic exposure occurs when workers or individuals within or around shipyards come into contact with asbestos-containing materials, leading to inhalation or ingestion of asbestos fibers. This exposure can result from handling, repairing, or demolishing asbestos-containing ship components.

What health risks are associated with shipyard asbestos exposure?

Exposure to asbestos in shipyards can lead to severe health issues, including asbestosis, lung cancer, mesothelioma, and other asbestos-related diseases. These conditions often have a latency period, meaning symptoms may not manifest until many years after exposure.

Who can file a shipyard asbestos toxic exposure lawsuit?

Typically, shipyard workers, veterans, or individuals who have been exposed to asbestos in shipyard environments and subsequently developed asbestos-related diseases have grounds to file a lawsuit. Family members of affected individuals, in the case of wrongful death, may also have legal options.

Your Right to Safety
The Statute of Limitations for Asbestos Cases

Asbestos can be found in factories, warehouses, hospitals, schools, homes built before 1980, construction sites, and in many military installations. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), there are 75 different jobs that can expose workers to asbestos, with those jobs primarily involving construction and manufacturing. Thousands of American workers are still exposed to asbestos each year. 

Mesothelioma is a serious illness that has been linked to asbestos exposure in medical literature. It is estimated that there will be thousands of new cases due to the latency period of 20-50 years after being first exposed to asbestos.
