Share Article

This week the Mesothelioma Compensation Center is sharing a recent article from the BBC on the demolition of a local power plant's cooling towers to point out that the article does not take into consideration the hundreds, maybe thousands of employees possibly exposed to asbestos at the power plant. “The story that is never written is the story of those who were exposed to asbestos at facilities like this all over the world in a time where there were little safety regulations implemented to keep workers safe, which is why we want to take time this week to reach out to victims and family members of former powerplant workers by saying one simple line: call 866-714-6466 for the nation's leading mesothelioma attorneys and information on this rare disease.” http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com

A former power plant worker who has been recently diagnosed with mesothelioma needs to have the nation's best legal representation when it comes to advancing a compensation claim against a utility or energy company.

The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "About one in four phone calls we receive from diagnosed victims of mesothelioma are from individuals who formerly worked at a power plant. From the 1950s through the late 1980s US power plants used asbestos in many areas that exposed workers to this hazardous material. As a superb insulation of its time, asbestos was used to coat many parts of all types of machinery, pipes, and electrical wires. The BBC article comments on the tearing down of the silos but doesn't discuss the little covered topic of those working in the plant who might have mesothelioma.

“Every state has a power plant. Our goal this week is to show workers or family members of a power plant worker that because these types of utility companies are so well funded, compensation for former power plant workers who were exposed on the job can exceed one million dollars if mesothelioma has been diagnosed. This disease is rare and usually shows in individuals who had extended lengths of exposure.

"A former power plant worker who has been recently diagnosed with mesothelioma needs to have the nation's best legal representation when it comes to advancing a compensation claim against a utility or energy company.
