If you or a loved one worked at Niagara Mohawk in the 1950s to 1970s, you most likely were exposed to asbestos. Prior to the mid-1970s, asbestos-containing materials were utilized as insulation for heated equipment, such as pipes, boilers, and turbines. Inhaling dust and particles from the application and maintenance of asbestos insulation and other materials placed employees at risk of developing serious health problems. Even those who were not in direct contact with asbestos materials remain at risk for the development of asbestos-related diseases, such as mesothelioma or lung cancer. Watch this video by an experienced mesothelioma attorney to learn more about Niagara Mohawk Dunkirk asbestos exposure and how we can help.

Niagara Mohawk Dunkirk is a huge steam station that provided electricity for the Southern tier on the Western side of New York. There are large units there, and each unit contained both a boiler and a turbine.

This equipment was constantly being repaired and worked on. Outside contractors would come in and reinsulate both the boilers and the turbines. This would create large amounts of dust that would travel throughout the facility, exposing workers to this deadly toxin.

If you or a loved one were diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer and worked at Dunkirk Steam Station, please contact us to learn about your rights as they pertain to Niagara Mohawk Dunkirk asbestos exposure.
