Every Year, thousands of men and women across the country are diagnosed with mesothelioma, including many in Maryland. Even more, are diagnosed with lung cancer and asbestosis. According to statistics compiled by the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation, not only does Maryland rank eighteenth in the nation for mesothelioma mortality rates, but Maryland's Anne Arundel County was listed among the twenty counties in the nation with the greatest malignant mesothelioma rates. All these asbestos-related diseases could have been prevented if workers were properly shielded from asbestos exposure.
Due To the presence of a massive shipyard industry, many power plants and other industrial companies around Maryland, shipyard employees, powerhouse employees, insulators, plumbers, laborers, electricians, pipefitters, compound operators, machinist, boilermakers, engineers, and many other trades were routinely subjected to asbestos daily at their places of employment. Mesothelioma lawyers at LK have extensive expertise in investigating these occupational exposures.
For over a century, the state of Maryland experienced a rich history of shipbuilding action throughout various coastal regions. Countless Baltimore citizens were employed in these shipyards, in which they built and repaired vessels for the U.S. Navy and commercial customers. The construction and repair of vessels at these shipyards exposed countless people to high levels of asbestos dust. Lawyers at LK are experienced in investigating asbestos exposures that occurred at those shipyards:
Located across the Patapsco River, the Bethlehem Steel Sparrows Point Shipyard in Baltimore, Maryland employed generations of families during its vibrant history. At one time, Bethlehem Shipbuilding was the biggest employer in Maryland with over 30,000 employees on the organization's payroll. With a ship Building history dating back to 1891, the 226-acre property fast expanded over a century to add boat construction and thorough repair and overhaul operations. Visitors of this Sparrows Point Shipyard were at a higher risk of suffering Exposures to various asbestos-containing materials.
Between The 1940s and 1980s, workers of the Sparrows Shipyard constructed, serviced, and repaired ships and boats including U.S. Navy Liberty Ships and ammunition boats in addition to private-sector tankers, dry bulk carriers, freight ships, dredges, car floats, ore carriers, freight barges, hopper barges, lakers, breakbulk, primitive carriers and many other transport vessels. Construction and repair of those vessels required the presence of many tradespeople, including pipefitters, insulators, plumbers, electricians, millwrights, machinists, boilermakers, laborers, engineers, and many other trades. Alas, lots of the machines, equipment, and components installed and repaired on these vessels contained asbestos.
Located in Baltimore, the Maryland Shipbuilding and Drydock Company employed thousands of Maryland citizens between 1930 and 1976. This shipyard primarily constructed and fixed vessels for private companies, including tankers, ferries, service ships, and container ships. Although a lot of ships were constructed here, the company specialized in conversions, upgrades, and repairs. Individuals present in the shipyard operated by Maryland Shipbuilding & Drydock Company were exposed to high levels of asbestos dust.
