Bergen Tile & Linoleum Co.

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

Bergen Tile & Linoleum Co. is a New York-based manufacturer of flooring products. Like many other companies up until the 80s, they have used asbestos in their products for its strengthening qualities, thus exposing their workers to serious diseases.

Former Employees of Bergen Tile & Linoleum Co. Need to Pay Close Attention to Their Health

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral, which has been heavily used in various industries, from shipbuilding to construction, automotive or even in power plants. Manufacturers of flooring products have used it for its great strengthening qualities, in order to provide more durability. Handling asbestos products or equipment on a daily basis has proven to be a hazard for human health, leading to serious diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer or asbestosis.

If you are a former employee of Bergen Tile & Linoleum you need to pay close attention to your health. Asbestos-related diseases can take a long time to start showing signs, and they can develop even after the exposure has stopped. We strongly recommend frequent check-ups in order to catch any abnormality early on. For this purpose, we offer screenings free of charge for former Bergen Tile & Linoleum employees. Our specialists will analyze your latest chest X-ray and determine whether or not there is a cause for concern. Contact us if you need any further information.

Victims of Asbestos Exposure During Their Time at Bergen Tile & Linoleum Co. Can Receive Compensation

Ever since 1920 studies have shown a strong link between serious lung diseases and asbestos exposure. During WW2, asbestos use has seen exponential growth in the US, until the 80s when its use was regulated. Despite the fact that manufacturers knew it was carcinogenic, or they had the obligation to know it, they exposed not only their workers by incorporating it in their products, but in some cases, the public at large as well. Bergen Tile & Linoleum is one of the companies that have been involved in asbestos lawsuits over the last years, as numbers of former employees affected by serious lung diseases have started to increase in the US.

If you are a former Bergen Tile & Linoleum employee that has been diagnosed with asbestos-related lung disease, you have the right to claim compensation. Our team of highly trained lawyers has been working with asbestos cases ever since 1990, helping thousands of victims file claims and get compensated.
