Steam Pipes

Anyone who joins the armed forces is accepting a certain level of risk. Soldiers and sailors are highly trained to cope with whatever dangers they may face in combat. But what happens when they face risks they were never warned about, or do not learn about for decades?

Hundreds of veterans have faced this tragic situation when they were diagnosed with mesothelioma, asbestosis, or a related disease. Years after retiring from the service, they suddenly find themselves with serious injuries they could not have predicted. Worse, they may even discover that the government knew about the dangers to their health, but failed to inform them.

Veterans’ asbestos exposure lawyers Williams Hart are dedicated to helping injured veterans win the compensation they deserve. To learn about our legal methods, contact our offices at 800-781-3955.

Asbestos and Steam Pipes

Steam pipes are a necessary component to a well-functioning ship. Naturally, due to the high temperatures they can reach, it is important to keep them well insulated. Until the 1970’s, asbestos was widely considered an ideal insulation material for steam pipes and boilers.

As we all know now, this was a tragically flawed decision. Many people who installed or repaired steam pipes from World War 2 through the 1970’s have become very sick as a result. This is especially true for members of the Navy and Coast Guard. Living in tight quarters on ships greatly increased the amount of asbestos fibers they inhaled on average.

Even though asbestos is now regulated by the US government, it remains surprisingly common in the workplace. Ships and military buildings constructed before 1980 may still contain this material in steam pipe insulation and other areas. If you think you may have been exposed to asbestos on the workplace, a knowledgeable asbestos attorney can inform you of your options.
