AVCO Aerostructures

Workers exposed to asbestos

Located in Nashville, Tennessee, the company was a manufacturer of aircraft. It was founded in 1952. In 1987, the name of AVCO Aerostructures was changed to Textron Aerostructures. The number of employees who worked at this company was approximately 1,400. It is worthy of note that AVCO Aerostructures specialized in the production of airplane wings and tail assemblies. Because asbestos was necessary to insulate various aircraft components, workers were inevitably exposed to it, which now places former employees at high risk of developing a serious disease. If you came to struggle with a disease as a result of working at AVCO Aerostructures before 1980, when asbestos use was finally regulated on the job, you are eligible for compensation, which our skillful attorneys will help you recover.

AVCO Aerostructures employees exposed to asbestos

Aircraft handlers were the occupational group with the heaviest asbestos exposure at AVCO Aerostructures, as they would often have to install, maintain and repair aircraft components manufactured with asbestos. When these components were disturbed, millions of toxic fibers were released in the air, thereby making asbestos exposure unavoidable. In the regrettable event that you developed a disease as a consequence of working at AVCO Aerostructures during the last century, please contact our law firm, as our main area of practice is toxic exposure, and we will help you obtain the financial compensation you deserve from your former employer. The only documents we will need from you are your employment and medical records, which will stand as evidence to support your claim, while our resourceful legal team will efficiently take care of the rest of the necessary paperwork on your behalf. Thereby, your involvement in the legal process will be minimal. Eventually, you will recover fair compensation for your injury 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 most states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of AVCO Aerostructures workers

If you lived under the same roof as a family member who was working at AVCO Aerostructures at the time, you were most likely exposed to asbestos as well, which is known as secondary asbestos exposure. Since employees were not required to wear any protective equipment when handling asbestos on the job, they would often return home with asbestos dust on their clothes, skin and hair. While their wives would inhale and ingest toxic fibers when laundering their work clothes, their children would come in contact with the dangerous mineral when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. If you suffer from a disease you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm, as our attorneys have been pursuing toxic exposure cases for over 25 years. After a thorough discussion with our legal team, during which you will need to thoroughly explain the circumstances of your asbestos exposure, our attorneys will begin preparing your claim for submission. While very complex, the legal process will only require you to send your attorney the employment records of your family member who worked with asbestos and your medical records, documents that will be used as proof to support your claim. You will eventually recover the maximum compensation you qualify for from the liable company, which will also help you afford superior healthcare and treatment.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

Oftentimes, people who were injured by occupational asbestos exposure refuse to seek the compensation they deserve while they are alive, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by workplace asbestos exposure, our attorneys will help you file a wrongful death claim with the responsible company to recover fair compensation on their behalf. We will only need 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. The remaining necessary paperwork will be carefully taken care of by our legal team, which will make your involvement in the legal process minimal. In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation available on behalf of your lost family member if you decide to work with our law firm. 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.
