Testing urged for ex-Texas Vermiculite workers

Comments Off

In another example of employers poisoning their workers and nearly a year after federal authorities revealed that hundreds of employees at the former Texas Vermiculite plant in West Dallas could have asbestos-related lung diseases, the state is getting ready to begin health screenings on the former workers.

Workers exposed should be tested and those with disease may be eligible for treatment and compensation under their state workers’ compensation system and should consult with an attorney knowledgeable in that area.
