If You Worked at Boise Cascade Corporation Before 1980, We Advise You to Closely Monitor Your Health
Headquartered in Boise, Idaho, the company was renowned for manufacturing lumber and other building materials, as well as paper products, and is still in business today. In addition to expanding their catering to the engineering industry and real estate, Boise Cascade Corporation also acquired Princess Cruises in 1968. Despite changing their name to Boise Paper Holdings, LLC, the grim history of asbestos use the company has remains. For approximately two decades, Boise Cascade Corporation employed the hazardous agent in the production of construction materials such as corrugated paper and latex coated gasket. Moreover, the facilities themselves were in poor condition, as numerous former workers have later reported – insulation would often come off pipes and employees were required to clean the waste up by blowing it with air hoses, which entailed a very high risk of asbestos exposure.
Considering the presence of asbestos in both the products of Boise Cascade Corporation and their facilities, it should not come as a surprise that numerous people have subsequently come to suffer from devastating diseases such as pulmonary fibrosis and lung cancer 10 to 50 years after their first exposure. While money will never be a replacement for health, the compensation you can recover by filing a claim against Boise Cascade Corporation if you were injured by occupational asbestos exposure may allow you access to better treatment and care. The assistance of a lawyer who specializes in asbestos cases is crucial in situations like yours, as they are the only professionals who have the ability and knowledge to thoroughly prepare your claim and obtain maximum compensation for you.
