Oil Refinery, Power Plant, Shipyard Employees Most At-Risk, New Jersey Asbestos Lawyers Say
New Jersey has a long and storied history with the asbestos products and disease. Dozens of New Jersey cities – including Cherry Hill, Camden, Salem, Westville and Paulsboro – have been home to confirmed asbestos exposure jobsites, both large and small. Among those workers at risk for developing mesothelioma from asbestos exposure are employees of oil refineries, such as Mobil Oil and Valero in Paulsboro, New Jersey, Motiva Enterprises in Cherry Hill, New Jersey and Sunoco Eagle Point in Westville, New Jersey where asbestos was extensively used in the petroleum and petro-chemical industry. DuPont’s facilities in Deepwater, New Jersey (formerly known as Chambers Works) and Repauno, New Jersey used vast amounts of asbestos materials.
New Jersey power plants, including the Salem Nuclear Generating Station in Salem, New Jersey, also extensively used asbestos products throughout their facilities. Additionally, numerous shipyard workers and United States Navy personnel have suffered and died from mesothelioma. Kearney, New Jersey’s Federal Shipbuilding & Dry Dock Co., which was hailed as the second-leading producer of Navy destroyers through World War II, used millions of tons of asbestos containing materials in shipbuilding. Similarly, New York Shipbuilding and Drydock and American Dredge in Camden, New Jersey used a vast amount of asbestos in constructing and repairing ships. Numerous other oil refineries, shipyards and power plants in southern New Jersey also used asbestos materials in the manufacture of their products and operation of their facilities.
A dangerous and aggressive form of cancer, mesothelioma can take up to 60 years to manifest symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest pain and weight loss. Unfortunately, because mesothelioma is often undetected until the disease is at an advanced stage, the majority of patients will survive just one year after-diagnosis. New Jersey asbestos lawyers note that mesothelioma is not the only illness known to be caused by asbestos. Lung cancer and asbestosis can also affect asbestos-exposed New Jersey workers and can lead to disability and death.
