Florida Power Plants and Asbestos

Exposure to asbestos may lead to the development of mesothelioma, a rare and very aggressive form of cancer that affects the cells that line organs.  In many cases, mesothelioma patients were exposed to asbestos at work, often without knowing the danger they were in.  Many of the jobsites where Florida workers may have been regularly exposed to asbestos are power plants.  In Florida, mesothelioma patients may be able to hold negligent employers accountable for their asbestos exposure, recovering compensation for medical bills and other damages.

Asbestos Power Plants in Florida

Because of the nature of the work performed in power plants, there is a high potential for fire.  Consequently, much of the equipment and machinery in power plants needs to be very well insulated.  In many cases, asbestos was used to insulate such components as generators, turbines, boilers, pipes, gaskets, valves, and seal pumps used in power plants.  We now know that exposure to asbestos is the cause of mesothelioma cancer.

Below is a list of some of the power plants where employees might have been exposed to asbestos.  If you worked at one of these sites or at another power plant, and could have been exposed to asbestos, you should notify your doctor of your possible exposure so that he or she can monitor your health for signs of mesothelioma, asbestosis, lung cancer, or another asbestos disease.
