To find out more on the case, see Case No. 13-61510-CIV-COHN/SELTZER – October 19, 2014.
A brief summary of the facts include:
- Plaintiff James A. Oneal served in the United States Navy for about twenty years between June 7, 1958, and March 30, 1980.
- During his naval career, Oneal worked aboard several different vessels, mainly in the boiler rooms (or “fire” rooms).
- His work mainly involved servicing equipment associated with the boilers, including steam pipes, valves, gaskets, pumps, and doors.
- Much of this work included removing and replacing packing or insulation materials that contained asbestos.
- Further, while serving on repair ships, Oneal boarded other ships to work on their boilers.
- Later in his career, Oneal also supervised other sailors performing these tasks, coordinated repair projects, and conducted quality-control inspections of boilers.
