There is help for former employees of the Condea Vista Chemical Plant in Lake Charles, Louisiana, who’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma.

Because of the age of the facility, and the unique characteristics of the mineral asbestos, the plant itself was built with asbestos components and insulation.

Asbestos provides superior flame retardance, as well as the capacity to slow or stop certain chemical reaction.

Asbestos was applied liberally in many industrial facilities in Louisiana protect people and property from the risk of fire, and in a chemical plant, it would even have been included as part of the safety equipment that workers relied on.
