American Standard Inc.

Workers exposed to asbestos

American Standard Inc. was founded over 90 years ago, through the merger of American Radiator Company and Standard Sanitary Manufacturing Company. They manufactured mainly plumbing fixtures, HVAC systems, and automotive braking systems. All of these products contained asbestos fibers, which may have put their workers at risk of developing related lung disease. If you are a former employee of American Standard, you might be at risk.

Claim Evaluation

American Standard Inc. employees exposed to asbestos

Up until 1980, asbestos was a very common component in a various number of products, because of its properties of strength, heat, and water resistance and its very low cost. As a result, many manufacturers have chosen to use it, despite warnings of its toxicity as early as the 1920s. It is worthy of note that veterans may also have been exposed to asbestos by using the products of this company while they were serving in the military.

American Standard Inc., as well as its divisions, has manufactured asbestos products. All over the US, plant workers may have been exposed to asbestos fibers, by manufacturing boilers, radiators, HVAC systems, and brakes. All of these products incorporated asbestos either for insulation or for strengthening. The occupations at the highest risk of developing a serious disease as a result of the asbestos exposure which occurred through American Standard are:

Asbestos fibers can get released into the air even by simply handling products containing it, more so if the process of manufacturing said products involves direct contact with it. These fibers can get trapped in the lungs and accumulate over time, creating an inflammation that can later lead to asbestos-related lung diseases. If you are a former employee of American Standard Inc. you need to keep a close eye on your health.

Families of former American Standard Inc. employees may have been subjected to secondary asbestos exposure

Closely working with asbestos products for an extended period of time, represents a huge risk for human health and there is a strong possibility that the families of former plant workers or maintenance workers at American Standard Inc. might be at risk of developing asbestos-related lung disease too due to secondary exposure. Knowing about its risks and still continuing to use it in their products, makes companies liable for claims of compensation.
