Major Los Angeles Job sites Known for Asbestos Problems

Todd Shipyards

Todd Shipyards is one of the big Los Angeles companies known for exposing employees to asbestos. It was constructed in 1916 when the ships were in high demand because of World War. Despite the U.S. economy’s downward spiral, Todd shipyards witnessed its biggest financial profit during the Second World War.

Eventually, Todd Shipyards expanded and started business with private shipyards. The Los Angeles Shipbuilding & Dry Dock Co became a part of Todd in 1945. This division was responsible for making submarines, steamboats, pirate ships and foot gates for Disneyland in California.

Todd successfully continued its business until the 1980s. However, high competition from other shipbuilders forced the company to close down its jobsite in Los Angeles in 1989. Vigor International acquired Todd Shipyards in 2010. Although Vigor has stringent laws and rules in place concerning the asbestos use on its worksites, numerous workers had been exposed to the cancer-causing mineral on a regular basis before Todd Shipyards was taken over.

Asbestos Claims against Todd Shipyards

As of 2010, Todd faced 490 asbestos suits and 10 mesothelioma claims, in addition to 184 less-serious complaints filed by its former employees. A number of these claims have been settled already. The company has placed $3M in a trust for future litigation. However, court records show that future suits and costs can equal up to $20M.

In 1981, a former Todd employee named Sidney Ombudsman sued the company after developing mesothelioma, claiming that his cancer was a result of prolonged asbestos exposure at the shipyard. The trial was very lengthy and the case finally went to the United States Court of Appeals. Ombudsman ultimately won the case, giving hopes to many others who want to take legal action against the business.

Other Los Angeles Sites with Asbestos Problems

Apart from Todd Shipyards, there’ve been numerous other businesses and companies known to use asbestos-containing materials. Hospitals, schools, mills, plants, and restaurants are among the various kinds of businesses that exposed employees to the cancer-causing mineral on a daily basis until the 1980s.
