Electrical Engineers Risked Mesothelioma From Asbestos in Power Stations. We can help you file your asbestos claim.
In recent news about the dangers of exposure to asbestos, electrical engineer who died of mesothelioma was revealed to have spent much of his working life around asbestos.
The man worked as an electrical engineer specializing in power stations for 30 years.
The 86-year-old died in his home in September of this year. His daughter told attorneys that the first she knew of his exposure to asbestos was when he was diagnosed in April with mesothelioma – a rare cancer related to asbestos.
"I knew he worked in power stations, but I didn't know they were lined with asbestos," she said.
Unfortunately, he had directly worked as an engineer in power stations with the electrical equipment.
Asbestos was used as an insulating material in order to assist in reaching the high temperatures necessary to run the boilers and generate electricity.
Most men were not provided with any masks and were not warned that asbestos was dangerous until the early 1980s. By that time, the damage had been done.
Many electrical engineers have come forward to say their work environment led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis, lung cancer or another one of the cancers associated with asbestos.
