Map of asbestosis and mesothelioma deaths in DelawareOver 244 people died from exposure to asbestos in Delaware from 1979 to 2001. New Castle County, home to Wilmington, had the most deaths. Sussex County, home to numerous seaside resorts, small towns, industry, and agriculture, was second. Because asbestos takes years or even decades to affect the body and patients do not typically demonstrate symptoms of an asbestos-related illness for many years, it is likely that a high number of asbestos-related deaths will continue to occur in Delaware.

Asbestos Exposure in Delaware

DuPont Chemical Corporation, one of the worst and largest corporate polluters on record, is located in Delaware. DuPont Chemical has been accused of exposing numerous employees to asbestos fibers. Another Delaware work site that frequently used asbestos-containing materials is the Dover Air Force Base. In addition, Delaware has many beautiful, historical buildings. Buildings constructed prior to 1980 often incorporated asbestos-containing materials to help prevent fires. Before its dangers were widely known, asbestos was commonly used in shingles, flooring, pipefittings and even HVAC systems.

Delaware has several oil refineries and oil refineries are a known source of asbestos exposure. Prior to the late 1970s, asbestos was widely used to insulate the many pieces of equipment that needed to operate at very hot temperatures inside oil refineries. This equipment included furnaces, tanks, boilers, ovens, heat exchangers and pumps. Workers who repaired and maintained the asbestos insulation used in this equipment were especially prone to asbestos fiber inhalation. Exposed workers may have included engineers, electricians, pump system operators, boilermakers, pipefitters, millwrights, ironworkers and welders. Some workers even wore protective clothing woven from asbestos fibers to protect them from the tremendous levels of heat. This clothing may have put them into direct contact with dangerous asbestos fibers.

If you worked at any of these companies and/or jobsites in Delaware there is a possibility that you were exposed to harmful asbestos. If you need sound legal advice or representation due to this exposure, contact mesothelioma lawyers Clapper, Patti, Schweizer & Mason.
