Asbestos Exposure in Massachusetts

Naval Shipyard in Massachusetts

Many shipyards, the Boston Naval Shipyard for example, posed a risk of asbestos exposure because of the materials used to build the ships and facilities. Because asbestos resists corrosion and high temperatures, it was an ideal material for use in the shipbuilding industry. It was used to insulate boilers, incinerators, hot water pipes and steam pipes. 

Asbestos dust tended to build up in these inadequately ventilated areas, which led to dangerous exposure aboard vessels. Nearly 300 components on each ship built here contained asbestos.

Unfortunately, many of the families of workers at the sites listed below also have an increased risk of developing cancer because of the asbestos fibers that were carried home on the body and clothing of those workers.

Statistics for Mesothelioma Cases in Massachusetts

Massachusetts ranks 18th in the US for asbestos-related deaths. There have been 856 deaths from mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer between 1999 – 2013.

Filing an Asbestos Claim if You Live in Massachusetts

You do not have to file your claim in the state in which you live. 

It’s far more important to contact an attorney with a strong history of experience specifically in asbestos cases, than it is to select one who happens to be in your area of Massachusetts. The most successful attorneys in your area may have never handled an asbestos case.

SWMW attorneys dedicate the overwhelming majority of their time and effort prosecuting mesothelioma claims, so we know which states and jurisdictions are going to provide the best outcome for your case and can get your case settled faster.
