Brown & Root Inc.

Workers exposed to asbestos

Founded in 1919, the company was a leading producer of industrial maintenance, engineering, construction and specialty services. While their facility, known as Houston Lighting & Power Company, was located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, their headquarters was in Houston, Texas. Brown & Root Inc. manufactured a wide variety of construction products, including boilers, which were insulated with a large amount of asbestos at the time. Thereby, people who were employed at this company before 1980, when the use of asbestos was regulated in the workplace, are now at high risk of developing a serious disease as a result of occupational asbestos exposure. In the unfortunate event that you came to struggle with a disease after working at Brown & Root Inc. we strongly encourage you to contact our law firm, as our primary area of practice is toxic exposure.

Brown & Root Inc. employees exposed to asbestos

Undoubtedly, the heaviest asbestos exposure among Brown & Root Inc. employees occurred in boilermakers, as they had to insulate these products with asbestos. In the absence of protective equipment, they would regularly inhale and ingest asbestos fibers from the air, which greatly endangered their health. Today, up to 20% of industrial workers struggle with a disease as a consequence of occupational asbestos exposure. The occupations at the highest risk of developing a serious disease as a result of the asbestos exposure through this company are:

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Brown & Root Inc. workers

Secondary asbestos exposure, which occurs when one inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, was very common among the family members of Brown & Root Inc. workers during the last century, as employees were not given any protective equipment against exposure to asbestos and would thereby often return home with toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair. While their wives would mostly 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. In the regrettable case that you struggle with a disease you believe is the consequence of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm for a free of charge case review. If you are eligible for compensation, our attorneys will file a personal injury claim with Brown & Root Inc. on your behalf, which is bound to result in financial compensation. The only documents we will need from you are the employment records of your family member who worked with asbestos and your medical records, which will stand as evidence to support your claim. You will eventually obtain the maximum compensation available for your disease from the responsible company if you decide to work with our law firm.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

Oftentimes, victims of workplace asbestos exposure refuse to seek financial compensation for their injuries 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 recover compensation on their behalf by filing a wrongful death claim. While complex and tedious, the legal process 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 stemming from asbestos exposure. The rest of the necessary documents will be carefully taken care of by our resourceful legal team. In the end, you will receive fair compensation on behalf of your lost family member if you choose to work with our experienced law firm. It is important to know, 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.
