The mesothelioma attorneys of Weitz & Luxenberg would like power plant workers and former power plant workers to be aware of their risk for developing mesothelioma, a cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. Asbestos is a cancer causing mineral that was widely used in many products. Some of these products include: pipes, cables, valves, pumps and turbines. Sadly, many of these products exist in power plants.

Asbestos containing products are a threat to human life when they are disturbed. Disturbance can occur by activities such as cutting or hammering. These activities can cause asbestos containing products to release cancer causing asbestos fibers into the air. Asbestos fibers are not visible to the naked eye and can remain suspended in the air for long periods. Suspended asbestos fibers can be inhaled by humans. Once asbestos fibers enter the body, they can enter the lungs and other organs of the body. The fibers can remain in the body indefinitely and lead to cancers such as asbestos lung cancer and mesothelioma decades later.

Weitz & Luxenberg mesothelioma lawyers are well aware that many former power plant workers who worked in power plants as long as 40 or 50 years ago are presently being diagnosed with asbestos lung cancer and malignant mesothelioma. Thus, it is important for all former power plant workers to get tested regularly for asbestos cancers such as lung cancer or mesothelioma. Diagnosing cancer while it is still in its early stages often leads to greater opportunities for treatment.
