North Dakota Mesothelioma

North Dakota Asbestos Attorney

The Throneberry Law Group focuses on providing dedicated and engaged legal representation for people diagnosed with mesothelioma as well as their loved ones. We have successfully helped many people obtain the compensation they deserve. Fueling our legal practice is a principal attorney who understands just how life-changing a mesothelioma diagnosis is because he lost his father-in-law to the disease.

We help mesothelioma victims in North Dakota as well as the rest of the country create strong legal strategies against the parties responsible for their asbestos exposure. Some of the North Dakota residents whom we have helped live in Bismarck, Dickinson, Fargo, Grand Forks, Jamestown, Mandan, Minot, West Fargo, Willison, and Valley City.

The Centers for Disease Control reports that North Dakota's mesothelioma death is higher than even the national average. Between 1999 and 2015, 129 North Dakota residents died from mesothelioma. Some of the people who are at increased risk of the disease include workers who are engaged in the power plant, mining, and oil refinery industries as well as the military.

Asbestos Exposure at North Dakota Power Plants

Before it was discovered that asbestos exposure can result in several deadly forms of cancer, numerous power plants utilized asbestos in a variety of equipment including steam pipes and valves. There are three power plants in North Dakota where it has been determined that workers are at risk of being exposed to asbestos:

  • Coyote Station Electric Generating Plant
  • Stant Powerhouse
  • United Power
North Dakota Mines and Asbestos Exposure

Much like power plants, oil refineries depended on asbestos for many years. Mines in North Dakota process vermiculite, which is a form of clay that is frequently contaminated with a deadly form of natural asbestos. As a result, there is an increased rate of mesothelioma among mine workers in Center, Minot, and Stanton.

The Risk of Asbestos Exposure for North Dakota Residents

The highest mesothelioma rates in North Dakota are in and around Dunn, Mercer, Mclean, Morton, and Oliver counties. Workers in these counties as well as many other parts of North Dakota are at risk of being exposed to asbestos on a daily basis. This is because there are still many asbestos-containing objects, which include various construction materials like wall tiles and insulation that were used in a countless number of North Dakota buildings. While asbestos is often not dangerous if left untouched, the substance becomes deadly if it is moved in any way. Asbestos fibers that are shaken loose can end up in the internal lining of a person’s vital organs.
