THE BROOKLYN NAVY YARD’S IMPACT ON ASBESTOS EXPOSURE

Long one of the leading manufacturers of U.S. Navy vessels, the Brooklyn Navy Yard operated at peak production during World War II, which also happened to coincide with a decades-long heyday of asbestos use. The widespread use of asbestos in ships put those who built or repaired vessels at risk, as well as Navy veterans who served on those ships. A number of products that contained asbestos were used in the production and maintenance of military ships.

Positions at the Brooklyn Navy Yard who may have been exposed to asbestos include:

  • INSULATORS
  • WELDERS
  • PIPEFITTERS
  • PLUMBERS
  • ELECTRICIANS

YOU CAN STILL PURSUE LEGAL ACTION

The Brooklyn Navy Yard closed in 1966, and today it serves as an industrial park. However, mesothelioma often takes decades for symptoms to manifest; many workers who were exposed to asbestos through the 1960s have only in recent years learned of their condition.

If you or a loved one worked at the Brooklyn Navy Yard and was diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer, please contact Williams Law Firm, P.C. for your free consultation.
