Amax Phosphate Inc.

Workers exposed to asbestos

Operating today as CEMEX Materials Florida, LLC, the company was a provider of phosphate, a mineral that occurs in close proximity to asbestos in the earth. Furthermore, the machinery and equipment their employees would use were also insulated with asbestos, which only perpetuated exposure. Maintenance workers were the occupational group with the heaviest asbestos exposure at Amax Phosphate Inc. during the last century. If you came to struggle with a disease after working for this company, please contact our law firm, as our attorneys specialize in toxic exposure cases and they will promptly help you recover the compensation you deserve from your former employer.

Asbestos Screening

Amax Phosphate Inc. employees exposed to asbestos

While everyone who was employed at this company encountered asbestos on the job, maintenance and repair workers were the occupational groups with the heaviest exposure, as they would often have to handle machinery and equipment components manufactured with asbestos, a process that would release millions of toxic fibers in the air. Thereby, employees responsible for maintaining and repairing various components are now at high risk of developing a serious disease as a result of workplace asbestos exposure. In the unfortunate event that you developed a disease after working at Amax Phosphate Inc. we strongly encourage you to reach out to our law firm, as our attorneys have been pursuing toxic exposure cases for over 25 years and will gladly help you recover the compensation you deserve as well. The only documents we will need from you are your employment and medical records, which will be used as evidence to support your claim. Eventually, several months after claim submission, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your diagnosis from the liable company. However, it is important to know that asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 3 years from the moment of diagnosis in the majority of states, which should prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Amax Phosphate Inc. workers


If you shared a living space with a family member who was employed as a maintenance or repair worker at Amax Phosphate Inc. during the last century, chances are you were also exposed to asbestos, which is known as secondary asbestos exposure. Because employees responsible for maintenance were not provided with the protective equipment they needed when handling asbestos components, they would often return home with toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair. Consequently, their wives would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would come in contact with the dangerous mineral when greeting their fathers upon coming back home from the job. If you suffer from a disease you believe is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm for a free of charge case review. In the fortunate case that you are found eligible for seeking financial compensation, the only documents you will have to send your attorney are the employment records of your family member who worked at Amax Phosphate Inc. and your medical records, which will be used as evidence to support your claim. In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation you qualify for from the negligent company if you choose to work with our law firm.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

It is not uncommon for people injured by workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to take legal action during their lifetime, usually out of fear of a long and complicated process. Nevertheless, while complex and tedious, the legal process will require minimal involvement on your part if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure and want to recover compensation on their behalf. The only documents we will need from you are the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must clearly state that they passed away due to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. Afterward, the rest of the paperwork will be carefully taken care of by our resourceful legal team. You will eventually receive fair compensation on behalf of your lost family member if you choose to work with our law firm. It is important to keep in mind, however, that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years from the moment of death in most states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.
