In recent news about the dangers of asbestos exposure in the Navy, the family of a retired Navy sailor who died of mesothelioma cancer triggered by the asbestos fibers he breathed on the job decades ago was awarded $1.2 million in a lawsuit against an Illinois-based manufacturer.
Formerly a high-ranking enlistee in the Navy, the man died after a year-and-a-half battle with malignant mesothelioma. He had joined the Navy in the early 1950s, and worked on several ships over the course of a 20-year Navy career.
Like virtually all Navy veterans who served aboard ship, he inhaled dangerous asbestos fibers and dust almost every day. The asbestos insulation materials used on the ship were equally as dangerous for those who repaired or refitted ships in drydock at a Navy Yard.
Asbestos, made with microscopic fibers with heat-resistant properties, was used heavily on ships for decades, for such things as insulation, gaskets, seals and pumps.
