Located in Charleston, South Carolina, Braswell Services Group Inc. provides a variety of services supporting the shipping industry, including stevedoring. Sadly, many people who have worked for Braswell Services Group have come in contact with hazardous materials found in and around ships and shipping facilities. One such hazardous material is asbestos, a material known to cause a serious and lethal form of cancer called mesothelioma.

When might I have been exposed to asbestos?

Unfortunately, asbestos has long been used in almost every facet of shipbuilding, maintenance, and repair. Thus, if you worked on or around ships during the course of your employment with Braswell Services Group, it is very likely that you were exposed to this dangerous material.

In addition to asbestos exposure at major shipyards, you may also have been exposed to asbestos while working at other marine facilities, power stations, refineries, steel mills, paper mills, and more.

What is asbestos?

Asbestos has long been used in the shipping business because of its desirable insulating, soundproofing, fireproofing, and other qualities. It is a durable material used for myriad purposes, including but not limited to ceiling, wall, and flooring work, heat- and fire-proofing engine rooms, boilers, valves and more. While asbestos does have benefits in shipyard work and related services, it is extremely hazardous to human health.

During construction, repair, maintenance, and demolition of asbestos-containing materials, asbestos fibers easily become airborne and are ingested or inhaled by people in the general proximity. Once asbestos fibers become lodged in the lungs or gastro-intestinal tract, they can cause serious damage to the lungs, heart, and abdominal organs. One of the worst effects of asbestos exposure is the development of mesothelioma .

What is mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a cancer of the lining of the heart, lungs, or organs of the abdomen. This cancer is often slow to develop, meaning that a person exposed to asbestos may not manifest signs of illness for years or even decades. Thus, you may have been exposed to asbestos while working for Braswell Services Group months, years, or even decades ago, and only now be diagnosed with a serious asbestos-related illness like mesothelioma.

What can you do?

If you have been exposed to asbestos while working for Braswell Services Group and subsequently developed mesothelioma, you have certain rights and options. Contact us today to learn more.
