Mesothelioma Lawyers Colorado

Map of asbestosis and mesothelioma deaths in ColoradoColorado is home to numerous power generation plants and military bases, industries that have historically placed workers at high risk of asbestos exposure. Additionally, Colorado has many older buildings. Since homes and commercial buildings were typically constructed with asbestos-containing products prior to 1980, workers involved in the repair of older buildings may still, today, come in contact with dangerous levels of asbestos. Before its dangers were widely known, asbestos was commonly used in insulation, roofing materials, floor tiles and millboard. Exposure to any amount of asbestos needlessly puts workers at risk of developing asbestos-related diseases such as mesothelioma.

Colorado had 395 asbestos-related deaths from 1979 through 2001 alone. Denver, Jefferson and El Paso Counties had the highest number of deaths, with 131 from mesothelioma.

Asbestos Exposure in Colorado

Colorado has numerous coal-fired power generation plants, and power plants have historically put workers at risk of developing asbestos-related diseases. Asbestos exposure was virtually unavoidable in power plants built prior to 1980. Due to its insulating and fire-retardant qualities, power plants used asbestos to protect equipment exposed to high temperatures, such as boilers and generators. Pumps and valves were often sealed with asbestos containing gaskets, and pipes were insulated with asbestos. Power plants tended to have fireproof roof structures and floors, and asbestos was the material of choice. When floors and ceilings were repaired, asbestos dust was distributed throughout the powerhouse, putting everyone at risk for asbestos inhalation.

When military bases have been abandoned in Colorado, asbestos was sometimes left behind. For example, contractors near Lowry released a large amount of asbestos fibers into the air when they were excavating for housing developments near the site of the former air force base. Colorado has one US Government priority asbestos cleanup site, the Western Minerals Company Plant in Denver.
