Minnesota Mesothelioma

Minnesota Asbestos Attorney

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you should not hesitate to speak with an experienced attorney at The Throneberry Law Group. Our dedication to each client is fueled by a principal attorney who has a personal understanding of just how devastating mesothelioma is after losing his father-in-law to the condition.

We have helped mesothelioma victims and their loved throughout Minnesota pursue compensation. Some of the clients that we have helped include individuals located in Bloomington, Brooklyn Park, Burnsville, Coon Rapids, Duluth, Eagan, Minneapolis, Plymouth, Rochester, and Saint Paul.

Three of Minnesota's counties (Carlton, Dakota, and St. Louis) have been ranked by the Centers for Disease Control as among the top 50 counties with the highest rate of mesothelioma. 971 Minnesota residents have died from mesothelioma between 1999 to 2015. Residents of the state who are engaged in the iron mill, flour mill, oil refinery, and power plant industries are at significant risk of asbestos exposure. Most people in Minnesota, however, encounter asbestos regularly, whether it is on the job or at home.

Asbestos Exposure at Minnesota Power Plants

Power plants in Minnesota have used asbestos for years due to the substance’s fire and heat resistant qualities. Some of the power plants in Minnesota where workers have been exposed to asbestos include the following:

  • Big Stone Lake Plan
  • Hoot Lake Nuclear Power Plant in Fergus Falls
  • Monticello Nuclear Power Plant
  • Prairie Island
Minnesota Oil Refineries and Asbestos Exposure

Much like power plants, oil refineries in Minnesota also depended heavily on asbestos for many years to act as a heat resistant building material. Some of the oil refineries in Minnesota where workers are known to have been exposed to asbestos include Marathon and Koch Petroleum.

Asbestos Exposure at Minnesota Steel Mills

Because steel mills frequently use heat and flames to melt and form steel, the industry once highly valued asbestos and used it in many different types of materials until it was discovered that asbestos exposure can result in several deadly types of cancer. Some of the steels mills in Minnesota where asbestos exposure is known to have occurred include Carley Foundry Incorporated, Dotson Company, and Trussbilt.

The Danger of Asbestos Exposure for Minnesota Residents

Not only does Minnesota have two natural asbestos deposits, many buildings and structures in Minnesota contain asbestos as a remnant of an age when the city heavily relied on asbestos. While asbestos is commonly found in numerous types of construction materials in the state including ceiling tiles and insulation, the substance is generally not dangerous unless it is moved. Once asbestos is moved, its fibers come loose and if inhaled, these tiny fibers of asbestos can end up trapped in the lining of several vital organs.
