Armco Inc.

Workers exposed to asbestos

Founded in 1899, the company was initially known as AK Steel and had over 6,500 employees. It rapidly became one of the world leaders in the steel industry. However, Armco Inc. made use of asbestos for the manufacturing of their products, which now places former workers at high risk of developing a serious disease. Machine operators were the occupational group with the heaviest asbestos exposure at Armco Inc. If you worked for this company and developed a disease as a result of asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm, as our attorneys have over 25 years of experience in pursuing toxic exposure cases and will gladly help you recover the financial compensation you are entitled to from your former employer.

Claim Evaluation

Armco Inc. employees exposed to asbestos

While everyone who was employed at Armco Inc. during the last century was exposed to asbestos to a certain extent, the heaviest asbestos exposure occurred in machine operators, as they would have to work with equipment that contained asbestos as insulation. When the components of the machinery that were manufactured with asbestos were disturbed, toxic fibers were inevitably released in the air. Subsequently, employees would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers, which greatly endangered their health. The occupations at the highest risk of developing a serious disease as a result of the asbestos exposure through this company are:

In the unfortunate event that you came to struggle with a disease as a consequence of workplace asbestos exposure, we are here to help you recover the compensation you deserve from Armco Inc. The only documents we will need from you are your employment and medical records, which will be used as evidence to support your case. Although the legal process is complex and tedious, it will require minimal involvement on your part, as the rest of the paperwork will be efficiently handled by our skillful legal team. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to from your former employer if you choose to work with our law firm. However, it is important to keep in mind 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 Armco Inc. workers

During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure was a frequent occurrence among the family members of people who handled the toxic mineral on the job, including Armco Inc. workers. Because they were not required to wear any protective equipment on the job, they would often bring home asbestos dust on their clothes, skin and hair. This way, their wives would be exposed to asbestos when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would inhale and ingest toxic fibers when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. If you struggle with a disease you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact us, as we specialize in pursuing toxic exposure cases. After the initial discussion with our legal team, during which you will be asked to describe the circumstances of your asbestos exposure, you will have to provide our attorneys with the employment records of your family member and with your medical records, documents that will be used as evidence to support your claim. The claim will be filed by our resourceful attorneys with Armco Inc. and will eventually result in the maximum compensation available for your diagnosis.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

It is not uncommon for the victims of workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to seek the compensation they deserve while they are still alive, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure, we will help you file a wrongful death claim to recover compensation on their behalf. While very complex, the legal process will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to send your attorney the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must clearly state that they lost their life to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. The remaining necessary paperwork will be carefully taken care of by our legal team. In the end, you will receive fair compensation on behalf of your lost family member. 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.
