A-Best Products Company

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

This Ohio based textile maker was specialized in manufacturing asbestos-containing safety gear. The asbestos use went on until the year 1984 when A-Best decided to stop producing these contaminated articles of protective clothing and in 2002 the company filed for bankruptcy. Their line of asbestos-containing safety clothing was meant to prevent the people wearing these products from getting burned at their workplace. Unfortunately, they were exposed to another kind of danger – airborne asbestos fibers.

Our Medical Experts Offer Asbestos Screenings Free of Charge to Former A-Best Products Company Workers

Specializing in the manufacturing of safety clothing such as gloves, aprons, and coats, A-Best Products Company is another business which heavily made use of asbestos. Due to the remarkable fire resistance it has, asbestos was the raw material of choice when it came to protective textiles throughout the past century. However, the mineral is also highly carcinogenic, so, while the clothing of A-Best Products Company might have shielded people like welders against fire, they also posed a serious threat to their health with wear and tear. Unfortunately, plenty of people who partook in the manufacturing of asbestos textiles later developed harrowing diseases such as pulmonary fibrosis and lung cancer.

Diseases which occur as a consequence of asbestos exposure have a long latency period of 10 to 50 years and vague symptoms, which is why they are so problematic to diagnose. Because we also take a keen interest in the health of our clients and of asbestos victims in general, Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. provides screenings free of charge to former A-Best Products Company workers. Send in your most recent chest X-ray and our specialists will carefully evaluate it. Subsequently, we will let you know whether the condition of your lungs should be a cause for concern.

If Someone in Your Family Was Employed at A-Best Products Company, You Might Have Been Exposed to Asbestos, Too

Lack of adequate industrial hygiene is the reason why so many people who never handled asbestos themselves came to suffer from diseases such as COPD, asbestosis, pleural plaques, and lung cancer. Asbestos workers – including those at A-Best Products Company – did not have to change their clothes at the end of the day and thereby, toxic fibers would be brought home, where family members could easily inhale or ingest them. This route of exposure is referred to as secondary asbestos exposure. Regrettably, it can result in the same terrible illnesses as occupational asbestos exposure.

While money can never replace health, it is important to know that, if you are a victim of secondary asbestos exposure as a consequence of living with a family member who worked at A-Best Products Company, you are eligible for compensation. A lawyer specialized in asbestos exposure cases is the most suitable professional to assist you with this matter, as they have the necessary resources to obtain maximum compensation on your behalf. Since 1990, our attorneys have been striving to help people injured by asbestos exposure and have so far recovered over $1.4 billion.
