According to the Mesothelioma Compensation Center, “The reason the mesothelioma compensation for a diagnosed oil refinery or chemical plant worker can be so significant is because these types of facilities use very similar equipment. An oil refinery processes crude oil into different components such as kerosene, gasoline, diesel, LPG (light petroleum gases), etc. A petrochemical plant is a chemical plant that will use a petroleum based feedstock, such as LPG or other products from a petroleum refinery, to produce a chemical product that is similar-to what is in plastics.
“The one common denominator between an oil refinery and chemical plant worker with mesothelioma is the similarity in equipment where the asbestos exposures would have taken place in the 1980s. There are chemical plants or chemical facilities in every state much like there are oil refineries or oil/gas distribution facilities in every state. The reason asbestos was so heavily used in these types of workplaces is because it was used as a fire retardant and was inexpensive.
“To maintain the refinery or chemical facility prior to the mid 1980’s, workers frequently had constant exposure to asbestos. It is exposure to asbestos that causes mesothelioma as we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303 with a diagnosed oil refinery or chemical plant worker and/or their family members.” http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com
Vital tip from the Mesothelioma Compensation Center for an oil refinery or chemical worker who have recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma:
* Avoid hiring a lawyer or law firm before first calling the Mesothelioma Compensation Center first 800-714-0303.
* Failing to hire one of the most skilled and qualified mesothelioma attorneys is a mistake that could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars or more in lost compensation to the person with mesothelioma. “The mesothelioma attorneys we suggest routinely get superior results for their clients when it comes to mesothelioma compensation.” http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com
