Babcock Wilcox Workers: Mesothelioma & Lung Cancer Claims

Babcock & Wilcox used asbestos in their steam boilers, utility and marine boilers, refractory products and various other products, putting employees and end users at risk of developing related illnesses like lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma.

Thousands of former workers and users of asbestos products were injured for years, many of whom are still ill from exposure. Babcock also acquired companies like Bailey Meter, endangering those workers. Patients are being diagnosed with lung cancer and mesothelioma decades after exposure, demonstrating the terrible consequences of asbestos use.

Babcock Wilcox Asbestos Lawsuits

Babcock & Wilcox first faced asbestos-related personal injury claims in the 1980s. While the company did not manufacture asbestos products, many of its boilers were constructed with asbestos materials. As a result, workers who built or maintained asbestos-containing boilers began to develop respiratory illnesses such as lung cancer and mesothelioma. B&W settled tens of thousands of asbestos claims by 2000, costing the company nearly $1.6 billion.

Over several decades of asbestos lawsuits, courts awarded numerous judgments in favor of plaintiffs harmed or killed by the company’s products. The company has been named as a defendant in countless asbestos cases involving veterans of the Navy and other industries.
