Did using asbestos blankets in an electric power station cause mesothelioma or another lung disease?
Our lawyers can help you seek money compensation for your health problems.
Asbestos blankets are made with fibers that are stitched, bonded, or woven into flexible blanket form. They were frequently used for high-temperature insulation or for fire and flame barriers.
Recently, a man contacted us because he had been diagnosed with a lung ailment. He had worked at Electric Power Stations that used asbestos blankets for high pressure turbines.
"We worked without protection for years without knowing the harm of asbestos," he said.
Now, his doctors have informed him that he has lung disease.
"Several doctors have asked me did I have a law suit filed," he said, adding, "They also told me proving mesothelioma is very hard to prove so I never pursue it."
