Asbestos in Chemical Plants
In chemical plants, asbestos was commonly used in insulation, pipes and plumbing, boilers, tanks, pumps and valves, protective clothing and construction. As a result, workers may have breathed in dust containing asbestos while performing their duties.
The dangers of asbestos were known for decades before it was regulated. Companies that knew of these risks, but did not alert workers or make their products safe, may be liable for resulting injuries, even if disease symptoms don’t appear for years. Our firm represents both workers and family members of workers who have died from asbestos-related illnesses in pursuing compensation.
