Wilmington B&W Boiler Manufacturing Plant Has Been Subject Of Many Asbestos Disease Worker Compensation Claims Filed In North Carolina
Frank M. was born on July 30, 1923 in Lumberton, North Carolina.
He served in the U.S. Army from 1943 to 1946 in the Private First Class (PFC).
Frank worked as a welder, fitter-helper, and expediter for 23 years at Babcock & Wilcox in Wilmington, NC, from 1960 to 1983.
While working at Babock & Wilcox, Frank was exposed to the following asbestos-containing products:
- Pipe covering insulation: Careytemp 2000 Block
- Cement: Careytemp 2000 Cement
- Fire brick
- Boilers: Babcock & Wilcox
- Welding gloves
On July 19, 2000, at the age of 76, Frank was diagnosed with chronic interstitial disease and pleural thickening suggestive of asbestosis and asbestos-related pleural disease, given his prior heavy asbestos exposure history from working at the B&W boiler manufacturing plant in Wilmington, NC for 23 years.
At the time of his asbestosis diagnosis, Frank lived with his wife and his daughter in Carolina Beach, NC.
Some of the major defendants from Frank’s asbestos lawsuit were Haliburton, Westinghouse, Johns-Manville, Garlock, Inc., Celotex, and Crane.
Frank also had a workers compensation asbestos disease claim against Babcock & Wilcox.
North Carolina asbestos lawyer Tom Lamb represented this Carolina Beach, NC welder / fitter-helper / expediter in an asbestosis lawsuit — as well as the related NC workers compensation claim — which resulted in significant settlements obtained from the asbestos companies and the responsible employer.
Our law firm has gotten legal compensation for many asbestos clients with cases involving asbestosis, lung cancer, or mesothelioma caused by their past exposure to asbestos containing materials which they worked with or around at various types of NC work sites all across the state.
