Tomkins Cove

Former Employees Should Seek Counsel with a Skilled New York Asbestos Attorney

In the aftermath of a boiler explosion at a Tomkins Cove, New York, power plant in 2001, asbestos was found in the nearby site of the former Orange and Rockland Utilities facility. Until the 1970s, asbestos—a deadly carcinogen that contributes to the cancer known as mesothelioma with regular exposure—was widely used in such sites for its insulative and fireproofing properties.

EXPLOSION AFTERMATH

Although tests showed no asbestos contamination following the Rockland County power plant explosion in Tomkins Cove, those who worked at the Rockland Utilities coal and natural may have been exposed to asbestos over the course of their job duties. Rockland Utilities was later taken over by the Mirant Corporation, which today functions as GenOn Energy Holdings.

Asbestos was widely used in power plants for:

  • PIPE COVERING
  • INSULATION
  • BOILER ROOM FIRE PROOFING
  • GENERATOR COMPONENTS.

If you or a loved one developed mesothelioma, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. Call 855-575-MESO (6376) for your free consultation. New York attorney Joseph P. Williams is dedicated to helping victims of these diseases in any way he can, including fighting for their right to compensation.
