Mesothelioma Lawyers For Placid Refinery Employees Exposed To Asbestos
Unfortunately, many people who spent their working lives in Louisiana’s oil refineries have ended up with diseases linked to toxic exposure they suffered while employed there.
If you spent some or all of your career at Port Allen, Louisiana’s Placid Refinery (Placid Refining Company), it is probable that your time there contributed to your illness, and you may be eligible for compensation that can help you get the treatment you need, and protect your family in the future.
Mesothelioma is a type of cancer whose only known source is asbestos exposure, usually chronic, and usually through one’s place of employment. Until very recently, many industries and industrial buildings, including petrochemical companies and oil refineries, relied on asbestos to provide insulation and fireproofing in thousands of applications in a given structure.
From floor and ceiling tiles to furniture and even protective clothing, refineries were home not only to people and oil – but to the small, airborne fibers of asbestos that break off through wear and tear or damage. When these were breathed in or inadvertently swallowed, they could become lodged in the body, causing irritation to nearby tissues, which can ultimately lead to the formation of mesothelioma cancer and other diseases.
