Hot Water Pipes

Asbestos has several qualities that made it a popular building material for centuries. Its durability and heat resistance especially interested the military. At one point the armed forces actually required that asbestos be used in the construction of buildings and vehicles. This ended in the 1970’s, when the link between asbestos and mesothelioma became widely known.

Unfortunately, this information came too late for hundreds of thousands of veterans who had been exposed to asbestos. Mesothelioma attorneys Williams Hart are committed to helping these veterans and their families win the compensation they need to cover medical expenses. Contact our offices at 800-781-3955.

Asbestos and Hot Water Pipes

Hot water pipes in warships and military buildings were regularly insulated with asbestos until the government finally began to regulate its use. This was naturally very dangerous to anyone who installed or repaired these pipes. People may not realize how dangerous it also was for anyone who:

  • Worked on a ship or in a military building
  • Lived on a military base
  • Had a relative who worked with asbestos and brought fibers home on his work clothes

People who have served in the Navy have a particularly high risk of developing asbestosis or mesothelioma. This is because of the large amounts of asbestos used in constructing ships, as well as the crowded living conditions that made it very difficult not to inhale asbestos fibers. However, members of the Army, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard may have also been exposed to this deadly substance.
