Asbestos Exposure on Frigates: VA Claims & Lawsuit Assistance

Navy veterans that used to serve on frigates were facing a very high risk of Asbestos exposure.

Asbestos Exposure on Frigates
USS Carr, Source: Wikipedia

Any place or component in the vessels that needed heat resistance contained Asbestos:

  • Weapons and ammunition storage rooms, engine rooms, and boiler rooms
  • Cables, gaskets, and valves
  • Wall and flooring insulation
  • Mess halls, navigation rooms, and sleeping quarters
  • Motors, compressors, pipes, and pumps

Even though Asbestos was no longer used in the construction of ships after the 1970s, many vessels that were built using Asbestos products remained operational for many years.

Apart from being around asbestos when staying on ships, Navy veterans also did repair work and maintenance to various parts of the ship. This caused microscopic asbestos fibers to break apart from the materials and fill the poorly ventilated cabins, gravely endangering crewmembers, sailors and other warship personnel.

Navy veterans were sometimes around or operated land vehicles that also contained Asbestos materials at the time, further increasing the risk of Asbestos exposure.
