Arizona Mesothelioma

Arizona Asbestos Lawyer

With an office located at 40 North Central Avenue in Phoenix, The Throneberry Law Group is focused on providing compassionate legal representation to mesothelioma victims in Arizona. Unlike many other law firms, our principal attorney lost his father-in-law to mesothelioma and understands firsthand just how devastating the condition can be.

Our legal counsel has helped people throughout Arizona obtain compensation for mesothelioma including in Glendale, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tucson, and Yuma.

The Centers for Disease Control report that 798 people in Arizona died from mesothelioma between 1999 and 2015. The highest mesothelioma death rates are found in the Gila county area, where there are 90 natural deposits of asbestos.

Arizona Power Plants and Asbestos Exposure

The power plant industry utilized asbestos for many years due to its durable nature. Power plant workers in Arizona who worked at the following locations suffered asbestos exposure:

  • Childs-Irving Power Plant
  • Cholla Power Plant
  • Octillo Power Plant
  • Palo Verde Nuclear Power Plant
  • Saguaro Power Plant
  • Wheat Phoenix Power Plant
  • Yucca Power Plant
Asbestos Exposure and W.R. Grace/Solomon’s Mine

The W.R. Grace/Solomon’s Mine, which is located in Phoenix, processed asbestos-containing vermiculite from Libby, Montana. Still operating today, the plant has begun to process vermiculites from safer sources. Many people were exposed to asbestos at this location over the years, including both workers at the site and their families.

Ari-Zonolite Plant and Asbestos Exposure

Located in Glenda, the Ari-Zonolite plant also processed vermiculite that contained asbestos from Libby, Montana. Much like the W.R. Grace/Solomon’s Mine, workers at these mines were also at risk of being exposed to asbestos.

Asbestos Exposure at Luke Air Force Base

Luke Air Force Base is located close to Phoenix. Individuals who lived and worked at the base before the 1980s were at risk of being directly exposed to objects containing asbestos. During the 1980s, the Air Force implemented an asbestos abatement program and has since eliminated asbestos-containing materials from the base.

The Danger of Asbestos Exposure for Arizona Residents

Workers in Arizona are exposed to asbestoscontaining materials on a frequent basis. This is because many different types of construction material including wall boards and ceiling tiles still contain asbestos today. Asbestos is not dangerous, however, unless it is disturbed. Once moved, there is a risk that asbestos fibers can end up inhaled and lodged in the lining of a person’s vital organs. Some of the public buildings in Arizona where people are known to have been exposed to asbestos include the following:

  • Arizona Bank
  • Good Samaritan Hospital
  • Maricopa Medical Center
  • Phoenix Civic Plaza
  • Valley Bank Building
