We Represent Chemical Plant Workers And Their Families

In chemical plants, asbestos was commonly used in insulation, pipes and plumbing, boilers, tanks, columns, vessels, gaskets, packing, pumps and valves, protective clothing and blankets, and construction. As a result, workers may have breathed in dust containing asbestos. The list of chemical plants where workers may have been exposed to asbestos is long and includes:

  • Allied Chemical Company in Nitro, West Virginia
  • Allied Chemical Plant in Moundsville, West Virginia
  • Celanese Chemical in Point Pleasant, West Virginia
  • Diamond Shamrock-Chemicals Inc. in Kingwood, West Virginia
  • DuPont Chemical Plant in Beech Bottom, West Virginia
  • Fike Chemical in Nitro, West Virginia
  • General Chemical in Point Pleasant, West Virginia
  • Mobay Chemical Plant in Wheeling, West Virginia

  • PPG Industries Chemical Plant in Natrium, West Virginia
  • Stauffer-AKZO Chemical in Point Pleasant, West Virginia

The dangers of asbestos were known for decades before it was banned. Companies that knew of the dangers, but did not alert workers are potentially liable for resulting injuries. Cancer symptoms typically appear 15 to 30 years or longer after exposure to asbestos. Our lawyers represent both workers and family members of workers who have died from asbestos-related illness.
