Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Oak Ridge cleanup workers file asbestos lawsuit

Nearly half-dozen Oak Ridge cleanup workers have filed a lawsuit in Roane County Circuit Court after claiming that they were exposed to asbestos without protective gear, along with other hazardous material, nearly a decade ago.

The lawsuit was filed last weekend and is seeking compensation from a number of government contractors who were involved in a cleanup project in 2000 and 2001 at the Department of Energy’s K-25 plant.

Six plaintiffs filed the lawsuit after working at R&R Electric Corp. as independent contractors. The plaintiffs claim in the lawsuit that they were told that the condensers that they were using did not contain asbestos particles and that they were denied protective gear when they asked for it.

They are now claiming that they were exposed to asbestos among other toxic materials while working. Lawyers representing the men have stated that they have experienced medical problems as a result of being exposed at the Oak Ridge Cleanup.
