Kentucky Mesothelioma Lawyer

Kentucky’s asbestos exposure primarily came from the construction, plumbing, railroad work, and sheet metal industries. It was the coal mining industry, however, that had the biggest impact on workers. Thousands of coal miners went to work each day in Kentucky coal mines that were littered with asbestos. In fact, hundreds of workers have already lost their lives to asbestos-related illnesses.

Kentucky currently ranks 25th in the nation for asbestos-related deaths. The state has a total of 2,376 asbestos-related deaths, according to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), which includes mesothelioma, asbestosis, and asbestos-related lung cancer deaths.

Occupations Associated With Asbestos in Kentucky

Coal mining is one of the largest sources of income for many workers in Kentucky. Regardless, the amount of asbestos found in coal mines have puts workers in direct danger. Most of the equipment used in coal mines, such as exhaust fans, drilling machinery, and other machines were also made with asbestos, due to its fire and heat-resistant properties.

In addition to coal mining, numerous Kentucky schools were built using asbestos. In fact, Georgetown College was discovered to have asbestos scattered throughout its living quarters. In 2011, a leak in one of the pipes put several students at risk.
