BE&K

Workers exposed to asbestos

The most renowned facility of this company was Lancaster Cotton Mills, where asbestos exposure was highly prevalent. BE&K was founded in 1972 and is located in Birmingham, Alabama. However, their facility was situated in Lancaster, South Carolina. The occupational groups with the heaviest asbestos exposure at this company were pipefitters and welders, as they had to handle asbestos insulation and to use asbestos welding rods. If you developed a disease after working at BE&K, please contact our law firm at your earliest convenience, as we specialize in toxic exposure cases and will help you recover the financial compensation you are entitled to from your former employer. Our skillful attorneys will file a personal injury claim for asbestos exposure with the company, which will result in the maximum compensation available for your physical and emotional distress.

BE&K employees exposed to asbestos

Because asbestos has numerous convenient properties, such as resistance to fire, electricity and a wide range of chemicals, it was heavily employed by BE&K during the last century for the manufacturing of cotton and other textile products. Nonetheless, the occupational groups with the most severe asbestos exposure were pipefitters and welders, since the former would have to disturb asbestos insulation, whereas the latter would use asbestos welding rods. In the unfortunate event that you came to struggle with a disease as a result of workplace asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm at your earliest convenience, as we have over 25 years of experience in pursuing toxic exposure cases. After a thorough discussion with our attorneys, whose main area of practice is asbestos exposure, they will be able to tell you with certainty if you are eligible for compensation. If you are, they will promptly begin preparing your claim for submission. The only documents we will need from you are your employment and medical records, as the rest of the necessary paperwork will be efficiently handled by our resourceful legal team. Eventually, you will obtain the maximum compensation you are entitled to from your former employer. 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 prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of BE&K workers


If you lived under the same roof as a family member who was working at BE&K at the time, you were most likely exposed to asbestos as well. Since employees were not provided with protective equipment when handling asbestos, they would often return home with toxic dust on their clothes. While their wives would inhale and ingest asbestos 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, please contact our law firm and we will thoroughly review your case. In the fortunate event that you are eligible for compensation, you will only have to send your attorney the employment records of your family member and your medical records, documents that will stand as evidence to support your claim, which will be filed with BE&K. In the end, you will receive fair compensation for your injury if you choose to work with our experienced law firm.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

Oftentimes, people injured by workplace asbestos exposure 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 asbestos exposure, we will help you file a wrongful death claim to recover financial compensation on their behalf. While complex and tedious, the legal process will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to provide your attorney with the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as with their death certificate, documents that will be used as evidence to support your claim. You will eventually receive fair compensation on behalf of your lost family member if you choose to work with our resourceful legal team. 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 the majority of states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.
