Mesothelioma in Shipyard Workers | Attorney Joe Williams

You worked in shipyards and now you've been diagnosed with mesothelioma And you're wondering what caused your mesothelioma

Hi I'm Joe Williams I'm a mesothelioma trial attorney here in New York City and I can answer your questions We know that shipyards were filled with asbestos At shipyards such as here in New York, a good example is the Brooklyn Naval Yard

And the Brooklyn Naval Yard, that's where the ships were built during World War II and thereafter And they were worked on, serviced, built from the ground up as well — in that yard There's also private shipyards that are not naval yards, like where non-naval ships were worked on Both built, constructed, maintained and repaired And whether it was the building of a new ship or the repairing of an existing one, the work was the same and it involved working with asbestos products such as insulation

Insulation on steam pipes, insulation on equipment (such as large boilers on these ships) Asbestos blankets which were put on turbines on these ships Asbestos gaskets were cut and fabricated at these shipyards to use on these pipes — on the steam pipes and the hot water pipes — on these ships And that's something that happened often, almost every day at a ship yard Bags of asbestos cement — high temperature asbestos cement, as well — would be used and mixed with water and applied to the piping, the equipment and machinery on these ships and at these shipyards

So there are a multitude of exposures to asbestos that a shipyard worker would have I'm sure you have more questions about how shipyard workers were exposed to asbestos Well we can answer those questions I'm Joe Williams I invite you to call the number below
