Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Seabees and Asbestos Exposure

It wasn’t until the 1970s that restrictions started going into place that protected workers from exposure to asbestos. However, before this time, people were regularly exposed to this dangerous material in the course of their work. Use of asbestos was especially prevalent in the U.S. military. Military personal responsible for the construction of on and off shore facilities, also known as “Seabees,” were exposed to over 3,000 types of the fibrous material during and after World War II.

If you or your loved one is currently struggling with one of the many conditions caused by asbestos exposure, compensation may be available. Seabees are an essential part of the military, and it is unfair that many of these workers are now struggling with devastating asbestos-related conditions because of their employment.

Seabees and Mesothelioma

Seabees were responsible for building and working on the following during their military service:

  • U.S. Navy ships
  • Bridges
  • Power plants
  • Airstrips
  • Roadways
  • Bulldozed areas

Nearly all these projects involved working around asbestos, and therefore over 300,000 Seabees were exposed to asbestos. Mesothelioma is one of many conditions related to asbestos exposure. It does not develop until years after exposure, and therefore Seabees who served during World War II, the Korean war, and the Vietnam war are currently being diagnosed with Mesothelioma.

Seabees performed a great service to our country, but now they are paying an unfair price instead of being awarded for their service. For more information on what you can do to pursue compensation as a victim of mesothelioma, contact the Mesothelioma & Asbestos Help Center today.
