New York Asbestos Lawyer Representing Clients Nationwide
Although the Queens, New York, airport known as JFK was officially designated as the John F. Kennedy International Airport in 1963, it was actually constructed in the 1940s during the peak of asbestos use. As many JFK structures were renovated or torn down in the decades that followed, the risks of asbestos exposure—including the devastating form of cancer known asmesothelioma, which is caused by the regular inhalation of asbestos fibers—were born anew.
New York asbestos attorney Joseph P. Williams is a longtime legal advocate for asbestos exposure victims and their families. If you or a loved one was diagnosed with mesothelioma following employment at JFK or another New York job site that may have contained asbestos, you may be entitled to compensation.

JFK’S ASBESTOS EXPOSURE
Asbestos was employed to numerous ends in various JFK Airport terminals, hangars and other structures, including insulation materials in the main terminal. Products containing asbestos were also used in JFK’s on-site power plant and boiler facilities.
Asbestos was used for many airport building materials, including:
- DRYWALL JOINTING
- FIRE-PROOF SPRAY ASBESTOS SPRAY
- FIRE DAMPERS AND BLANKETS
As JFK expanded from the 1950s through the 1970s, many structures containing asbestos were renovated or demolished, causing dangerous asbestos particles to re-enter the air and be inhaled by construction workers, maintenance personnel and other employees. Because mesothelioma generally takes decades to manifest, many of these workers are only now suffering the effects of this devastating cancer.
