Andco Inc.

Workers exposed to asbestos

Located in Buffalo, New York, the company operated a Bethlehem Steel facility and manufactured a wide range of automotive components for various vehicles. They made use of tremendous amounts of asbestos, since the mineral has excellent insulating and fireproofing properties. However, because it is a known carcinogen, exposure can lead to the development of serious diseases within 20 to 50 years. Today, people who worked at Andco Inc. and developed a disease as a consequence of occupational asbestos exposure are eligible for compensation from the liable company, which a lawyer whose main area of practice is toxic exposure will help them recover.

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

During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure was highly prevalent among the family members of asbestos workers, as they would often return home from the job covered in toxic dust. Thereby, their wives would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children were exposed to asbestos when greeting their fathers upon coming back home from work.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

It is not uncommon for victims of occupational exposure to fail to seek the compensation they deserve while they are alive, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. Nevertheless, if one of your family members lost their life to a disease caused by workplace asbestos exposure, you can file a wrongful death claim with Andco Inc. to recover the compensation you deserve on their behalf. With the help of our knowledgeable attorneys, who specialize in toxic exposure cases, you are bound to recover the maximum compensation available from the liable company. The only documents we will need from you before starting to work on your claim 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, such as lung cancer or mesothelioma. Although the legal process is very complex, it will require minimal involvement on your part, as our skillful legal team will efficiently take care of the remaining aspects of the legal process for you. Therefore, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure who had not sought financial compensation during their lifetime, we strongly advise you to contact our law firm and you will receive the maximum compensation you qualify for from Andco Inc. It is important to know, however, that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years from the moment of death in the majority of states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.
