Northup Grunman Cruisers

Newport News Asbestos Exposure

The Newport News Shipyard constructed 24 Cruisers and repaired or overhauled many more. If you live in or around Newport News and were involved in the construction, repair or overhaul of these Cruisers, you may have been exposed to asbestos. If you served in the United States Navy and were stationed aboard one of these Cruisers, you are also at risk for asbestos exposure. The family members of persons exposed to asbestos are also at risk for contracting mesothelioma cancer. If you were exposed to asbestos aboard a Cruiser at Newport News, contact our mesothelioma attorneys for a free case evaluation.

The following list is just of newly constructed Cruisers and does not include repairs or overhauls.
