Asbestos Exposure for Miners

Millions of workers in the mining industry have been exposed to asbestos and developed serious illnesses such as mesothelioma as a result. Adding to the tragedy, miners’ families have also been exposed to this deadly substance due to fibers left on workers’ clothing. Although asbestos is not currently mined in the United States, the effects of this dangerous industry are still being felt.

If you or a loved one has suffered from asbestosis, mesothelioma, or another illness caused by asbestos exposure in mines, contact mesothelioma attorneys Williams Kherkher at 800-781-3955.

Dangers to Miners: Not Just in Asbestos Mines

The fact that asbestos is no longer mined in the US does not mean that miners are generally safe. This toxic material can be found in other types of mines, such as those designed to extract coal. In fact, the Mine Safety and Health Administration has estimated that about 15% of mines contain asbestos levels above the safety limit.

People can be exposed to asbestos by:

  • Working with mining equipment that contains asbestos
  • Living near a mine, where asbestos particles may be released into the air
  • Former donations of asbestos from locals mining companies used to build schools, etc

Exposure to asbestos above legally recognized limits that causes illness can be grounds for a lawsuit. To learn more, contact an asbestos exposure lawyer today.
