Pine Bluff Arsenal

Workers exposed to asbestos

The Pine Bluff Arsenal is a U.S. Army installation located in Jefferson County, Arkansas, just northwest of the city of Pine Bluff. It is one of the nine installations in the country that stored chemical weapons. The Pine Bluff Arsenal was established in 1941. Asbestos exposure occurred at this facility because workers had to use the dangerous mineral for the manufacturing of weapons, as it has numerous convenient properties, such as resistance to fire and various chemicals, and was also very cheap during the last century. Therefore, people who held down a job at the Pine Bluff Arsenal Chemical Plant are now at high risk of developing a serious disease. In the unfortunate event that you are already struggling with a disease as a consequence of working for this military installation, our attorneys will help you recover the financial compensation you deserve.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Pine Bluff Arsenal workers

If you lived under the same roof as a Pine Bluff Arsenal employee, chances are you were also exposed to asbestos, since workers were not provided with any protective equipment on the job and thereby brought home asbestos fibers on their clothes, skin and hair. This is known as secondary asbestos exposure and was a very common occurrence during the last century among the family members of people who handled asbestos in the workplace. Contrary to popular belief, secondary asbestos exposure can be as dangerous as occupational asbestos exposure, as no amount of asbestos is safe for the human body. Therefore, if you developed a disease you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact us, as our attorneys specialize in toxic exposure cases. After you thoroughly explain your situation to our legal team, they will determine if you are eligible for filing a claim to recover compensation for your injury. If you are, the only documents we will need from you are the employment records of your family member and your medical records, which will stand as evidence to support your case. In the end, with the assistance of our resourceful attorneys, you will receive the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to from Pine Bluff Arsenal.
