Pearl Harbor Mesothelioma Lawyer

As the most famous Navy installation in the United States, Pearl Harbor is well known for the bombing that occurred in 1941. The facility, however, has another legacy—asbestos exposure. It’s estimated that since World War II, 10,000 workers have been exposed to asbestos in Pearl Harbor.

Asbestos exposure has the potential to result in an incurable cancer called mesothelioma. Diagnosing mesothelioma is challenging and most patients are older in life because the cancer can take decades to develop.

If you’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you have the right to seek compensation for your losses. Let’s take a look as worksites in Pearl Harbor that have a history of exposing employees to asbestos.

Worksites with Known Asbestos Exposure in Pearl Harbor

Prior to the introduction of asbestos regulations in the 1970s and 80s, most companies used asbestos-containing products. This is because asbestos is a good insulator and is fire-resistant. Once a person is exposed to the material, however, it has the potential to adhere to their lungs and cause mesothelioma over time.

Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard

For those in Pearl Harbor with mesothelioma, it’s likely asbestos exposure occurred at the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. The shipyard employed 1,400 general service employees, including over 500 engineers. In addition to that, the shipyard also had 2,600 wage grade personnel.

The material was used for gaskets, insulation, packing, and tape. Those enlisted in the Navy could have been exposed to asbestos every day without realizing it, and without knowing the dangers and potential consequences.

The Navy’s Pearl Harbor complex was considered a concern, so the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency deemed it a Superfund cleanup site. This means that hazardous materials, like asbestos, on site are being identified, investigation, and cleaned up.

Other sites where asbestos exposure occurred in Pearl Harbor include:

  • Ford Isle Tower
  • Schofield Army Barracks
  • Libby Processing Site
  • Naval Fleet Airbase
  • Hydro-Blast Corporation
  • Waiau Power Plant

Our Experience Is Personal

Scott L. Frost’s Family Experience with Lung Cancer

For most of his life, Scott L. Frost’s father, who was in the construction industry, worked with and sold products containing asbestos without knowing the materials were dangerous. He was diagnosed with lung cancer 40 years after starting his career, leading Scott’s family to fight like they had never fought before.

Pictured here with his wife of over 50 years, Scott’s father eventually succumbed to the cancer. Since then, Scott has made it his mission to do everything in his power to make sure corporations understand how dangerous asbestos is and prevent future generations from suffering as his family did, as well as support research that may lead to finding a cure.
