Arkansas Asbestos Exposure Sites

Posted on September 21, 2014 at 12:00pm by

Have you or your loved one become a victim of mesothelioma in Arkansas? Let us champion your fight. Call today to get an evaluation from an experienced Arkansas asbestos exposure lawyer.

Arkansas is not really noted for wide-spread asbestos exposure. There is no official Superfund site in Arkansas and, except for some pockets around Hot Springs and Russellville in Western Arkansas where it is found naturally, no extensive mining of the mineral.

However, Arkansas is home to several major power plants and oil refineries and people who work in these industries are at risk of exposure to asbestos. Anyone who works in an industry where high temperatures are likely exposed to asbestos at some level. In addition, more than 70,000 tons of asbestos-tainted vermiculite from the mines in LIbby, Mont. came to Arkansas, mostly to the North Little Rock area.

Here is a more comprehensive list of job sites where a worker or employee might have been exposed to asbestos.
