Seek Quality Legal Counsel from a New York Asbestos Attorney
Due to its prevalence in the construction and shipping industries prior to the 1970s, asbestos was once commonplace in shipyards and piers. Prolonged exposure to asbestos fibers, however, can lead to mesothelioma, and many pier workers who have in recent years developed this aggressive cancer did not know the risks associated with asbestos.
For years, New York asbestos lawyer Joseph P. Williams and the team at Williams Law Firm, P.C. have helped victims of asbestos exposure understand their legal rights and fight for compensation.

The impacts of asbestos among pier workers in the New York area are perhaps most notably linked with Pier 57, which once housed buses for the New York City Transit Authority and has been associated with health problems stemming from exposure to asbestos and other contaminants.
Other New York City-area piers in which workers may have been exposed to asbestos include:
- PIER 14
- PIER 40
- PIERS 45-48
- PIER 76
- PIER 91
- PIER 2 IN BROOKLYN

Although many pier sites that contained asbestos have since been demolished and/or the asbestos abated, mesothelioma typically takes decades for the symptoms to become evident. Those who were exposed to asbestos prior to asbestos restrictions and abatement efforts of the 1970s and ’80s may have only recently learned they developed mesothelioma orasbestos-related lung cancer. If this has happened to you, now is the time to speak with a New York asbestos attorney.
