Our previous experience representing mesothelioma victims in Kentucky is important because it means we are familiar with Kentucky job sites where asbestos exposure occurred.
Asbestos is a deadly mineral that has been used in thousands of products in multiple industries including manufacturing, steel working, shipbuilding and more. When asbestos fibers are inhaled or ingested they increase a person’s risk of contracting an asbestos-related disease like mesothelioma.
Kentucky is home to a number of asbestos sites. For example, some power plants in Cattlesburg and Drakesboro have been targeted as high-risk for asbestos. Chemical plants and oil refineries found in both Louisville and Ashland have also been listed as high-risk work sites. One of the best-known asbestos exposure sites in Kentucky is Fort Campbell, a U.S. Army instillation at the Kentucky-Tennessee border. When the military built this base in the middle of the 20th century, they used a great deal of asbestos material. While the base has been proactive in safely removing the asbestos, thousands of construction workers and soldiers have been exposed to asbestos through Fort Campbell over the last 50 years.
