Exposure to Asbestos in Machinery
Workers in factories and power plants faced the risk of asbestos exposure. Even after warnings were made public, companies continued to put their employees at risk of asbestos exposure from boilers, turbines, and transformers. Many workers exposed to asbestos over the course of their life did not identify their injuries until late stages of mesothelioma, leaving their condition untreatable. At The Law Offices of Michael R. Bilbrey, P.C., we are committed to providing aggressive representation to assert the rights of our clients who have suffered from asbestos exposure from boilers, turbines, and transformers.

Asbestos in machinery is not uncommon because of its heat resistant quality. Asbestos is often used as insulation for hot water pipes, electric cables, and machinery that heats up and could result in a fire. Many people using heavy machinery as part of their job were also told to wear protective clothing made of asbestos. Unfortunately, many workers spent their lives working in powerhouses, factories, and working with asbestos in machinery.
Many asbestos product manufacturers knew of the dangers of asbestos long before warnings were issued in the 1970’s. Insulators and other employees were not made aware of the dangerous products they were working with and now suffer from mesothelioma. We work to hold these businesses accountable for the injuries suffered by their employees.
Boilers are used in various applications including home heating and utilities to produce steam or to run machinery in a plant. Asbestos was used as a heat shield to insulate pipes, boilers, and heat exchangers.
Pumps, turbines, transformers, gaskets and valve coatings all contained asbestos. If you or someone you love has suffered exposure to asbestos from a turbine or asbestos in machinery, contact us for a free initial consultation or case evaluation.
Workers in power plants have spent their lives breathing asbestos in ash pits and through exhaust fans. Their clothing and equipment did not properly safeguard them against asbestos exposure. If you or someone you love is a victim of asbestos in machinery work use, please contact us for a free initial consultation or case evaluation.
