Are you a boilerman with mesothelioma? You have a right to fight for justice and we can help.
Recently, a man who had served 10 years in the U.S. Navy as a boilerman contacted us after receiving a diagnosis of mesothelioma.He worked in the engine and boiler rooms on several ships handling asbestos insulation on a daily basis.
He was a boilerman during his career in the Navy from 1948 through 1957, working in boiler rooms, in close quarters in which he was exposed to asbestos-containing cements, insulation, gaskets and packing.
From the 1930s through the mid-1970s, the U.S. Navy employed asbestos-containing products in its ships and shipyards.
In light of the important fire safety requirements aboard sea-going vessels, asbestos was primarily used for its tremendous heat and fire resistance, particularly in boiler rooms.
In fact, asbestos became so valued that the Navy made use of this carcinogen in more than 300 materials for construction and repair aboard warships and at shipyards.
Sadly, this boilerman is not the only one in his profession to come to us seeking to obtain financial compensation for his mesothelioma cancer.
Many boilermen have come forward to say their work environment led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
If this has been your experience, we may be able to help.
