Advance Auto Parts Inc.

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

Advance Auto Parts was founded in 1932, when Arthur Taubman purchased two stores: one in Roanoke, Virginia and one in Lynchburg, Virginia. An automotive aftermarket parts provider with over 4000 stores around the US, it was declared one of the biggest public companies in the world, by Forbes Magazine. Amongst the products sold over the years, there are asbestos brakes and clutch pads that might have put their workers at health risk.

If You Were an Employee at Advance Auto Parts Inc., You Might Have Been Exposed to Asbestos-Related Diseases

For over 80 years, Advance Auto Parts has been commercializing and working with products containing asbestos, such as brake and clutch pads. Employees handling these products might have been exposed to inhaling its fibers, thus running the risk of developing an asbestos-related lung disease. These products are a potential risk, especially to mechanics, distributors or salesmen. Asbestos fibers can get trapped in the lungs and accumulate over time. As a result, related diseases can take many years to develop. Asbestosis can take up to 20 years to show signs while lung cancer can take up to 40 years. It is extremely important that you take screenings and constantly check on your health.  If you or a member of your family have been exposed to asbestos products as a former employee of Advance Auto Parts, Inc. we will provide screenings free of charge.
