Mesothelioma Attorney For Chalmette Refinery Employees Exposed To Asbestos
Employees of Chalmette Refining, LLC’s refinery in Chalmette, Louisiana (joint venture of ExxonMobil and PDVSA), were often subject to asbestos exposure from a variety of materials used in the refinery, as well as materials used in the construction of the refinery itself.
This legacy of toxic exposure to asbestos fibers that became airborne in the normal course of operations has led many retired workers to develop asbestos-related diseases like mesothelioma, a form of cancer that is often very difficult to diagnose and treat.
Mesothelioma Lawsuit Compensation & Benefits For Chalmette Refinery Workers Who Have Died Or Have Been Diagnosed With Mesothelioma
Because the Chalmette Refinery is a site where asbestos exposure is known to have occurred, a diagnosis of mesothelioma later in life can be traced directly to your time as an employee of Chalmette Refining, LLC.
In adults, asbestos is the only known cause of mesothelioma, and while other jobs you held may also have caused asbestos exposure, any employer whose worksites were contaminated with asbestos are liable for the damages they’ve caused Louisiana families.
Oil refineries have a significant need for materials that can act as fireproofing agents, so older refineries were routinely built with asbestos-containing materials, and additional exposure could occur when using protective equipment, which was often woven from asbestos.
Workers at the Chalmette Refinery in Chalmette, Louisiana, may have been exposed to asbestos over a period of many years, and their risks for dangerous asbestos-related diseases may be higher than that of the general public.
If you’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos-linked disease and worked at the Chalmette Refinery, or have a loved one that has recently passed, the attorneys at The Gertler Law Firm can help you get the compensation you deserve, and hold negligent corporations accountable for the harm they’ve caused you and your loved ones.
