Secondary victims of asbestos exposure at Bath Iron Works are entitled to receive compensation
There are documented links between shipbuilding work and asbestos exposure leading to serious diseases, ever since 1940. Despite this, the industry has continued to use it, disregarding the risk they were exposing their workers to. Employees would even work with asbestos covers for the pipes, cutting them with a saw, which would put them at huge health risks. Among shipyard workers, pipefitters, welders, and painters, there is also a big percentage of veterans exposed to asbestos due to the Navy’s extensive use of these ships and asbestos-containing products.
Former Bath Iron workers who have been diagnosed with asbestos-related lung disease can qualify to claim compensation. Family members who have been diagnosed with these types of diseases after secondhand exposure can be eligible as well. In over 25 years of experience dealing with asbestos cases, ELG has helped thousands of victims to file claims.
