Our firm is able to help residents of Libby, Montana seek compensation for their health concerns
In recent news out of Libby, Montana, a congressional delegation is pushing the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to complete the cleanup of the asbestos contamination there.
Government health workers have estimated that over 400 residents have died in Libby, Montana from asbestos related lung cancer, asbestosis and mesothelioma cancer--all related to asbestos contamination caused by a now-closed W.R. Grace vermiculite mine.
According to the Associated Press, the EPA in May finalized its cleanup strategy for the first two of eight contaminated areas, including a town park. Some Libby residents and local elected leaders fear the EPA is rushing to finish its work, leaving the town at risk.
Vermiculate containing asbestos was used to insulate hundreds of homes and businesses in Libby, Montana. It was also tilled into backyard gardens.
The Grace mine was active for decades and in that time produced so much dust that hazardous asbestos is now embedded in the barks of trees that cover the surrounding mountains.
