The Nicholson & Hall Boiler & Welding Corporation was established in 1922 by Lance Nicholson and Thomas Hall in Buffalo, New York. Nicholson & Hall serviced ship boilers at first but moved to constructing and repairing land-based boilers in industrial sites and power plants in 1959. In its prime, Nicholson & Hall had 300 boilers and other tradesman working at the shop on 41 Columbia Street in Buffalo. In 2013, Nicholson & Hall closed their operations permanently.
Unfortunately, many of our clients who worked at Nicholson & Hall Boiler & Welding Corporation are now being diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma and lung cancer. Before the 1970s, asbestos insulating materials were used on ships and in power plants. Employees of Nicholson & Hall often maintained and replaced boilers at industrial sites in Western New York. Two examples of the sites that were worked on by Nicholson & Hall include Niagara Mohawk’s Huntley and Dunkirk stations. Pipes were also coated in asbestos pipe covering and insulating cement. Unfortunately, repairing and replacing both machinery and insulation caused asbestos fibers to be emitted into the air and inhaled by workers.
Asbestos is dangerous because its fibers are extremely fragile and break easily into tiny particles that your body’s air filtration system can’t trap and expel. When asbestos gets into your lungs and stays there, it can cause mesothelioma or lung cancer. Risk of diagnosis increases with the length of time that a person has been exposed although even short exposures can cause mesothelioma or lung cancer. The most common causes of asbestos exposure are in the workplace or from products in the home. Spouses and family members of workers could also be exposed to asbestos dust and fibers from the clothing the workers wore home from job sites like the Nicholson & Hall Boiler & Welding Corporation.
Mesothelioma is a rare disease that is diagnosed between 2,500 and 3,000 times each year. Anyone who has been exposed to asbestos is at risk for developing mesothelioma or lung cancer. Although most companies knew that asbestos was dangerous, they continued to allow their employees to work with and around asbestos without protective gear until the late 1970s.
