Oil refineries have extensive arrays of insulated pipes and pressure vessels to transport and contain superheated liquids. For years, asbestos was used to insulate this equipment, and countless oil refinery workers were exposed to this hazardous substance. The result? A large number of oil refinery workers will contract deadly mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis, or another asbestos-related disease. Insulators, pipefitters, and plant maintenance workers are particularly vulnerable, though other workers and management personnel at oil refineries are also at risk.
If you are an oil refinery worker or previously served in that capacity, and you have contracted an asbestos-related disease, you have rights. Contact a workplace asbestos exposure attorney at Brayton Purcell LLP today to schedule a free initial consultation.
