Energy Future Holdings

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

Energy Future Holdings Corp. has its origins in several electric service companies in Texas, in the late 19th and early 20th century. Several mergers and acquisitions in the following decades consolidated the company into one of the largest players in the energy market. Litigation in the field of pollution and asbestos-related illnesses from power plants and other facilities using high amounts of asbestos in their products led to the bankruptcy of EFU.

Former Energy Future Holdings Workers Should Closely Monitor Their Health

As one of the leading companies in the energy market during the last century, Energy Future Holdings specialized in manufacturing products such as generators and wiring insulation. Regrettably, it did not refrain from using asbestos either, which would pose a serious threat to the health of workers on a daily basis. Once they make their way in the body via inhalation or ingestion, asbestos fibers – which are recognized as a known human carcinogen by multiple U.S. federal agencies – attach themselves to various organs, where they will gradually produce inflammation and tissue scarring. Within 10 to 50 years, these symptoms might give way to a terrible disease such as gastrointestinal cancer, pulmonary fibrosis, asbestosis, or mesothelioma.

Because the early detection of these diseases is highly problematic, our specialists offer free asbestos screenings to anyone who worked at Energy Future Holdings. All you have to do is provide us with your most recent chest X-ray. Our experts will thoroughly evaluate it to let you know whether the asbestos fibers in your lungs have caused any damage. If we discover a disease began developing, our lawyers will strive to obtain maximum compensation for your injury from Energy Future Holdings. For more information, do not hesitate to contact us and we will gladly assist you.

Victims of Secondary Asbestos Exposure Are Also Entitled to Financial Compensation from Energy Future Holdings

Occupational exposure is not the only way one may come in contact with asbestos. Although the vast majority of people who are now experiencing the awful health effects of asbestos exposure encountered the mineral in the workplace, there are a handful who never worked with asbestos themselves, yet are struggling with illnesses such as lung cancer or mesothelioma. These individuals are mostly family members of asbestos workers. Because asbestos fibers have microscopic dimensions, they can easily infiltrate non-occupational environments, including households. During the last century, Energy Future Holdings employees would frequently bring home asbestos fibers on their clothes, as the company did not require them to change before leaving the facility.

Numerous family members of Energy Future Holdings workers have been diagnosed with asbestos-related diseases within the past three decades, while many others are expected to develop terrible illnesses as well in the near future. If you, too, shared a living space with someone who was employed at this company, we encourage you to undergo a medical examination at least once a year, as the risk never diminishes. As for the people who are already struggling with a disease as a result of secondary asbestos exposure, we urge you to take legal action immediately. You are also eligible for financial compensation, which might help you tremendously with affording the treatment you need. Specializing in cases of asbestos exposure, our attorneys will provide you with quality legal assistance and representation.
