Is your asbestosis due to a job with the Navy?
The loved ones of an ex-Royal Navy
officer who passed away from asbestosis after working with
asbestos more than 40 years ago, is urging his former co-workers to come forward
to help with an asbestos lawsuit,
reported the Norwich Evening News on August 14, 2008.
The man died four years ago at the age of 74 of asbestosis from his exposure to asbestos.
He had reportedly been exposed to the carcinogen 43 years earlier when he
worked at a power station.
He worked there for only eight years, and had not been in contact with the
lethal substance since 1961. Sadly, the asbestos
dust lay dormant in his lungs before turning into the deadly cancer, killing
him in 2004.
According to the News, the man was exposed to the dangerous asbestos
dust when he worked with boilers
at the power station, a job which involved lagging pipes with asbestos.
