Coal plant workers: You have a right to asbestos settlement compensation.
A widow has vowed to fight for justice after her husband who worked in a coking coal plant died of asbestos-linked mesothelioma.
Shortly before he died, he started to build a claim against his employers after he was exposed to asbestos daily while working at a coking coal plant between 1968 and 1978.
In the coking plant hard coal is converted to coke. The by-products coke plant gas and steam are required in other processes of steel production.
Coke is essential to the production of pig iron.
It serves for the reduction of the iron ores into iron and delivers the heat required in the furnace process. The consistency and the carrying capacity of this coke at high temperatures is important for this process.
Now, his wife is hoping former coworkers will help in her fight for justice.
She says her husband filed the lawsuit so that she and her children and grandchildren would be taken care of when he died.
She said her husband worked with asbestos every day but that his bosses did not tell him of the dangers.
Coal plant workers are among those who risk exposure to asbestos in their occupation.
