Mesothelioma Lawyers For Garyville Refinery Employees
It’s very possible that Marathon Oil would be held responsible for injuries you sustained during your time working for Marathon at the Garyville Refinery in Garyville, Louisiana, even if you only became aware of the injuries years later.
Workers in oil refineries are at heightened risk for asbestos-linked diseases like mesothelioma in Louisiana, and while the Garyville Refinery is not as old as some, it still likely included a number of components constructed from or with asbestos, including ceiling and floor tiles, insulation, and even protective clothing.
Asbestos is famously efficient at fireproofing and insulation, and it also slows down a number of chemical reactions. All of these qualities made it an ideal material in oil refineries, but the health risks of exposure to asbestos only became known later.
