Borchers Brothers Building Supply

Workers exposed to asbestos

Located in San Jose, California, the company was a manufacturer of building materials, coal and grain during the last century. It was founded in 1902 and had approximately 50 employees at the time. Because it has numerous convenient properties, such as fire resistance, asbestos was employed by Borchers Brothers Building Supply in large amounts for the manufacturing of construction products. A former employee recalls how he would operate a forklift, clean up the plant and operated a machine that mixed concrete with asbestos. If you developed a disease after working at this company before 1980, we are here to provide you with quality legal assistance. Our resourceful attorneys, who have been pursuing compensation for toxic exposure victims for over 25 years, will help you file a personal injury claim with your former employer to obtain the money you are entitled to for your injury.

Borchers Brothers Building Supply employees exposed to asbestos

Since it was a manufacturer of construction products, everyone who was employed at Borchers Brothers Building Supply was heavily exposed to asbestos, as the production of building materials required asbestos use to strengthen and fireproof the final product. By disturbing asbestos, millions of toxic fibers are released in the air, which makes exposure inevitable. In the regrettable event that you worked at this company and came to struggle with a disease as a consequence of asbestos exposure, we strongly encourage you to contact our law firm, as our main area of practice is toxic exposure. After you thoroughly explain your situation to our legal team, our knowledgeable attorneys will promptly begin preparing your personal injury claim for submission. The only documents you will have to send your lawyer are your employment and medical records, which will stand as evidence to support your claim.

Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to from the liable company if you decide 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 prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Borchers Brothers Building Supply workers


During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure was a very common occurrence among the family members of construction workers, as they would not be provided with any protective equipment against inhaling or ingesting asbestos on the job and would thereby often come home covered in toxic dust. The employees of Borchers Brothers Building Supply are unfortunately no exception. While their wives would mostly be exposed to asbestos when washing up their work clothes, their children would come in contact with the dangerous mineral when greeting their father upon returning home from the job. If you struggle with a disease you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure that occurred when you shared a living space with a Borchers Brothers Building Supply worker, do not hesitate to contact our law firm for a free of charge case review. After a thorough discussion with our legal team, they will be able to tell you with certainty whether you qualify for compensation. If you do, the only documents you will have to provide your attorney with before they begin preparing your claim for submission are the employment records of your family member and your medical records, which will be used as proof to support your claim. In the end, you will receive fair compensation for your physical and emotional distress from the responsible company if you choose to work with our experienced law firm.

While the legal process is very complex, your involvement will be minimal if you lost a family member to a disease caused by asbestos exposure and intend to seek compensation on their behalf.

The rest of the paperwork will be efficiently taken care of by our resourceful legal team so that you can focus on more important aspects in the meantime. You will eventually obtain the maximum compensation available on behalf of your lost family member with the assistance of our legal team.
