Over 400 former dockyard workers have filed class action and individual asbestos lawsuits after being exposed to the known carcinogen while working on U.S. warships. The workers or their heirs are currently seeking compensation for these damages.
Many of the workers who were stationed at HM Drydocks, now known as the Malta Drydocks, have died after being diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma.
Asbestos is the primary cause of the rare and aggressive lung cancer, mesothelioma. The cancer can have a delayed latency period for up to 50 years, which makes it very hard to treat.
