List of U.S. Navy Vessels That Used Asbestos

The U.S. Navy has about 430 vessels, including both ships and service craft, that are actively in service or in reserve. Unfortunately, although the Navy issued a policy against using asbestos in ships in 1975, many veterans had already been exposed to the cancer-causing material by that point.

The nationally recognized mesothelioma law firm of Belluck & Fox has extensive experience researching where asbestos was used on U.S. Navy vessels, and we are here to help veterans who are now suffering health effects from their exposure years ago.
