Seabees and Asbestos Exposure
Seabees are people who were in the United States military service who worked at off-shore construction and repair facilities. Prior to the 1980s, these workers were often exposed to dangerous asbestos fibers and many are now suffering because of this exposure. The United States banned the use of asbestos in all construction products in 1979, but many Seabees were still exposed before this time. Many illnesses are associated with exposure to asbestos, and exposed workers may be entitled to financial compensation.

Seabees were responsible for constructing many different materials and facilities used by the United States military. Some of these materials included:
- Power plants
Because Seabees worked with so many construction materials, the likelihood of their exposure to asbestos is very high. In years past, asbestos was commonly found in ceramic tiles, drywall, and other construction-related materials, so anyone who used these materials prior to 1980 increased their chances of being exposed to asbestos.
Dealing with asbestos-related illnesses can be very difficult and costly. Fortunately, the mesothelioma attorneys of Williams Kherkher are here to help you fight for the financial compensation you need if you were exposed to asbestos as a Seabee.
