Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC

Workers exposed to asbestos

Founded in 2001, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC is one of the few companies which still make use of asbestos today. They specialize in manufacturing passenger, light truck, commercial truck, bus, motorcycle, carts and off-road vehicle tires. It is located in Nashville, Tennessee. People who are currently working at Bridgestone Americas Tire Operation LLC are exposed to asbestos on a regular basis, although to a lesser degree than it would happen during the last century, as they are now provided with the adequate protective equipment they need. However, since no amount of asbestos is safe for the human body, they are still at significant risk of developing a serious disease within 20 to 50 years. If you came to struggle with a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure, please contact our attorneys and they will subsequently file a claim to recover the financial compensation you deserve.

Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC employees exposed to asbestos

While the workers of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC wear adequate protective equipment on the job, asbestos exposure still occurs, as they may sometimes have to take their face masks and coveralls off, such as when they are on lunch breaks. Since asbestos fibers tend to linger in the air once they are released, they may thereby be inhaled or ingested by employees who are not wearing their protective equipment. Because diseases caused by asbestos exposure take decades to develop, it was only recently that Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC employees began receiving awful diagnoses. If you are or were a worker of this company and developed a disease as a result of occupational asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm to recover the compensation you deserve for your physical and emotional suffering. Since 1990, we have been providing quality legal assistance to victims of asbestos exposure and will gladly file a claim for you. All you have to do is explain your situation to our legal team and send your lawyer your employment and medical records, documents that will be used as evidence to support your claim. Moreover, to ensure a favorable outcome for your case, our resourceful legal experts will conduct in-depth research to discover additional proof for your claim. In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to, which will also help you afford superior healthcare and treatment. However, it is important to know that asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 3 years from the moment of diagnosis in the majority of states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC workers


While secondary asbestos exposure was very prevalent among the family members of asbestos workers during the last century, it is not a serious concern today, as employees who handle asbestos have to wear protective equipment on the job, which is usually disposed of at the end of their shift. Thereby, the chances of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC workers to bring home asbestos dust on their clothes, skin and hair are relatively small. Nonetheless, secondary asbestos exposure may still occur if employees are not careful, which may lead to the development of serious diseases among their family members. In the regrettable event that you came to struggle with a disease you suspect is the consequence of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm, as our main area of practice is toxic exposure. After a thorough discussion with our attorneys, who have been pursuing asbestos exposure cases for over 25 years, they will be able to tell you with certainty if you qualify for filing a personal injury claim with the company. If you do, they will promptly begin working on your case and the only documents you will have to provide are the employment records of your family member and your medical records, which will stand as evidence in your claim. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your injury if you decide to work with our resourceful legal team.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

Oftentimes, victims of workplace asbestos exposure fail to take legal action while they are alive, usually out of fear of a long and complicated process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member who was working at Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure, we can help you file a wrongful death claim to recover compensation on their behalf. While the legal process is very complex, it will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to send your attorney the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must state that they passed away due to a disease caused by asbestos exposure. These documents will serve as evidence in your wrongful death claim and, to ensure the best outcome for your case, our skillful legal experts will conduct research of their own to find additional proof for your case. You will eventually receive the maximum compensation available as a surviving family member if you choose to work with our law firm. 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 most states, which should prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.
