Asbestos Exposure – Shipyards
Nationwide Shipyards Asbestos Exposure Attorneys
Shipyards and ships themselves contain machinery, equipment, and materials that contain (or contained) asbestos. Since most insulating materials and gaskets contained asbestos, the engine room of a ship is likely to house machinery containing asbestos. Shipbuilders, Navy personnel and repair workers may have a claim against asbestos manufacturers if they developed asbestosis, mesothelioma, or lung cancer as a result of exposure to air borne particles of asbestos while working in a shipyard. At the law office of Flint & Associates, our attorneys have represented numerous clients nationwide in asbestos cases. Our lawyers understand the medical and scientific issues involved, as well as how to prepare for the denial tactics of asbestos manufacturers and their attorneys.

Equipment and Machinery Containing Asbestos in Shipyards
Longshoremen, Navy personnel, ship builders, seamen, and maritime workers may have come into contact with asbestos if they installed or worked on the following:
- Wire brushers
- Pipe insulation
- Ship boilers
Recovering Damages in Asbestos Cases
Our attorneys work with medical specialists and asbestos experts in preparing evidence linking our client’s medical condition directly to past exposure to asbestos. In cases involving Navy personnel and shipyard workers, providing records of work history and duties that would have involved exposure to asbestos is important. Since attorneys for asbestos manufacturers often try and claim a plaintiff’s lung cancer is due to other factors besides asbestos exposure, we work with nationally recognized medical, forensic and toxicology experts. We also consult medical economists who can quantify the cost of asbestos exposure in terms of lost earnings, medical treatment and pain and suffering.
