Mesothelioma Fund Help For Former Valero Refinery (Orion Oil and Gas) Workers And Their Families

Former employees of the Valero Refinery in Lake Charles, Louisiana, may be entitled to compensation if they develop mesothelioma after their time at the refinery. Depending on the specifics of your career, Valero Energy may be responsible for all, or a portion of damage compensation you’re entitled to as a Louisiana worker.

Under the law, when a person or company behaves negligently, the people who are hurt by that negligence are able to seek relief. Because the courts don’t have the power to cure your mesothelioma, that relief takes the form of monetary awards that can be applied to medical care and other needs.

When it comes to mesothelioma, it is well understood that companies like Valero have liability for employees who were exposed to asbestos in refineries owned by the company.

Nearly all cases of mesothelioma in the United States are related to workplace exposure, either directly in employees and former employees of a company, or through second-hand exposure of the worker’s family members.

Small fibers of asbestos that were widely used in refinery construction in Lake Charles and elsewhere are known to have become airborne within refineries, exposing countless workers to the rigid fibers, which can become lodged in the lungs and abdomen and cause diseases like mesothelioma.
