Baltimore Mesothelioma Lawyer

Baltimore has a history of extensive asbestos use in many industries until the EPA implemented strict asbestos regulations in the 1980s. The major Baltimore businesses that heavily relied on asbestos were shipyards, manufacturing plants, construction, steel companies, and paper mills. Many former workers of these industries have already died from various asbestos-related diseases.

If you have contracted mesothelioma or any other asbestos-related condition, you could be entitled to significant compensation. A dedicated Baltimore mesothelioma lawyer can help you file an asbestos trust fund claim and get the compensation you deserve in 3 months.

The Curtis Bay Coast Guard Yard

Curtis Bay Coast Guard Yard is located at 2401 Hawkins Point Rd, Curtis Bay, six miles away from Baltimore. Many ships were repaired at the yard until the 1990s. However, the busiest time for the Curtis Bay Coast Guard Yard was the First and Second World War era when nearly 3000 individuals worked at various operations and jobs. Unfortunately, this was the time when the use of asbestos was at its peak. Many former yard workers later developed mesothelioma and other asbestos diseases.

Titan Steel Corp

Like most other steel businesses in the U.S., Titan Steel Corp also heavily relied on asbestos before the 1980s. It was once one of the largest steel distributors in the world. So, a large number of people suffered asbestos exposure while working for Titan Steel and many of them developed asbestos-induced medical conditions such as mesothelioma.

Key Highway Shipyard

Like all other U.S. shipyards, Key Highway Shipyard also heavily used asbestos in its buildings, equipment and parts. As a result, many workers suffered prolonged asbestos exposure while working for the shipyard. During the First and Second World War, thousands of naval ships were repaired at the Key Highway shipyard and more than 11000 people worked there. All these workers were exposed to asbestos on a daily basis and a number of them later developed fatal ailments including mesothelioma.

Other Baltimore Job Sites with Asbestos Problems

Along with shipyards, oil corporations and steel companies, many hospitals and schools built before the 1980s used asbestos in their buildings. Many of these schools and hospitals are still in operation.
