Families of former American Optical Company workers subjected to secondary exposure are entitled to compensation
Glass workers were exposed to great health risks by handling molds and furnaces that had asbestos insulation. But it wasn’t just them facing a potential hazard. Construction and maintenance workers were also at risk, by scraping, removing, and re-applying asbestos insulation on furnaces. Similar risks might have faced workers who serviced boilers, pipes, and turbines that provided steam and hot water. Performing these regular maintenance services would release asbestos fibers into the air, thus contaminating the environment and raising the possibilities of developing lung diseases.
If you were an employee working one of the above-mentioned jobs, and have developed an asbestos-related lung disease, you have the right to receive compensation. ELG has over 25 years of experience litigating asbestos claims and has helped over 26.000 victims. Take action as soon as possible and contact us, as these cases have a certain statute of limitations. We will help you file a claim and get compensated.
