20+ Years Experience Helping Veterans With Mesothelioma Claims
Merchant Marine ships were built with the same asbestos-containing products and materials as the Navy. Thousands of Merchant Marine ships were in service from 1930 to 1950. More than 6,000 Merchant Marine ships were built and used by the U.S. Navy to deliver troops, munition, and supplies.
Merchant marine ships are civilian ships used by the Navy to carry cargo to U.S. ports during peacetime. In wartime, Merchant Marine ships are responsible for transporting supplies and troops for the U.S. military.
Merchant marine ships included tankers, hospital ships, troop transport ships and liberty ships and about 100,000 personnel worked and lived on these ships.
Merchant Marine ships contained more than 300 asbestos-containing products and materials that were used regularly in the constructions of vessels until 1980. Thousands of military veterans served on U. S. Navy ships with the peak exposure years from 1940-1980.
There are approximately 25 million veterans in the United States. Veterans exposed to asbestos are at risk of developing mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. The latency period for asbestos cancer can be 10-50 years after your initial exposure.
1 out of 3 veterans will develop an asbestos-related disease in their lifetime.
Asbestos products onboard ships included insulation, pipes, boilers, cement, sealers, gaskets, cables, tubes, valves, electrical fixtures, wiring, pumps, decking, paints, non-skid flooring, and in bulk headwalls, ship hulls, mess halls, engine rooms, navigation rooms, and sleeping quarters.
Merchant Marines most at risk include boilermakers, electrician's mates, enginemen, demolition workers, machinist mates, mechanics, metalsmiths, repairmen, pipefitters, ship fitters, technicians, welders, and civilian contractors.
