New Hampshire Mesothelioma

New Hampshire Mesothelioma Attorney

At the Throneberry Law Group, we focus on providing the most compassionate legal representation possible for mesothelioma victims. Behind our aggressive legal representation is an attorney who understands just how devastating the loss of a loved one can be after losing lost own father-in-law to mesothelioma.

While we offer legal services throughout the country, we have helped individuals in New Hampshire obtain compensation in Concord, Derry, Dover, Hudson, Keene, Londonderry, Manchester, Merrimack, Nashua, and Portsmouth.

The Centers for Disease Control report that New Hampshire has a particularly high rate of mesothelioma deaths, with 235 New Hampshire residents dying of mesothelioma between 1999 to 2015. While all residents of New Hampshire are at risk of being exposed to asbestos, people who have worked in shipbuilding, teaching, power plants, and manufacturing are at particular risk. Hillsborough and Rockingham counties have the highest rate of mesothelioma diagnoses in the state.

Asbestos Exposure at New Hampshire Power Plants

Before the 1980s, most power plant equipment was made with asbestos due to the material's heat resistant nature. Because most of this equipment remains in use at power plants today, many power plant workers are exposed to asbestos. Some of the power plants in New Hampshire where workers are known to have been exposed to asbestos include:

  • Concord Power Plant
  • Littleton Hydro-Electric Dam Project
  • Merrimack Power Plant
  • Schiller Power Station
  • Seabrook Nuclear Power Station
New Hampshire Shipyards and Asbestos

For many years, the shipbuilding industry depended heavily on asbestos as a type of insulation. Asbestos was also used in various pieces of shipyard machinery including boilers, gaskets, and pumps. One of the shipyards in New Hampshire where workers are known to have been exposed to asbestos is the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.

Asbestos Exposure at New Hampshire Paper and Pulp Mills

Because paper production requires great degrees of heat, the paper and pulp industry heavily relied on asbestos for many years. Some of the locations in New Hampshire where workers are known to have been exposed to asbestos include the following:

  • Berlin Paper Mill
  • Brown Paper Company
  • Claremont Paper Mill
The Risk of Asbestos Exposure for New Hampshire Residents

Even though there are not any naturally occurring asbestos deposits in New Hampshire, residents of New Hampshire are still exposed to asbestos on a frequent basis. Asbestos was used for many years in all sorts of construction materials, including insulation and floor tiles used in both commercial and residential buildings. Asbestos is only dangerous if it is disrupted, however. Once disturbed, asbestos fibers can be inhaled and end up embedded in the linings of a person’s vital organs. Some of the public facilities in New Hampshire were individuals are known to have been exposed to asbestos include the following:

  • Anheuser Busch Brewery
  • Brezner Canning Corporation
  • Concord State Hospital
  • Davidson Rubber Company
  • Farmer's & Mechanic's Bank
  • Farmington Waste Water Plant
  • Foster Grant Company
  • Hitchiner Manufacturing Company
  • Littleton Dam
  • Nashua Memorial Hospital
  • Nashua Savings Bank
  • Plainfield Grammar School
  • Portsmouth Federal Building
  • Portsmouth High School
  • Peterborough Hospital
  • Rochester High School
  • Sherbourn School
  • St. Anslem's College
  • St. Mary's College
  • University of New Hampshire
  • Warren Manufacturing Company

Michael Throneberry gave me a whole new outlook on attorneys'! A very caring person who was more concerned with my health than a case. Truly unexpected! He explained possible conditions in english and even found the right doctors in my area. Prepared me for the right questions to ask the doctors so that I can understand my illness better.
