Former Christy Refractory Employees Injured by Occupational Asbestos Exposure Are Eligible for Compensation
Refractory materials refer to products which can withstand extreme temperatures without deteriorating. They are used for equipment such as incinerators and furnaces, which are prone to overheating, to prevent fire. In addition to manufacturing refractory materials, Christy Refractories also produced insulation and permaboard, both of which would contain asbestos. Because the mineral has excellent fire resistance and durability, it was ideal for refractory materials, enhancing their properties and lifespan. Unfortunately, asbestos is a human carcinogen and exposure is responsible for a wide range of awful diseases, from pulmonary fibrosis to mesothelioma. Accordingly, a large number of Skinner Engine Company employees came to suffer terrible injuries after years of working for the company.
If you, too, developed a disease as a result of your employment at Skinner Engine Company, we advise you to take legal action as soon as possible and claim the money you are entitled to. As the company was forced to file for bankruptcy protection in 2010 and subsequently set up a trust fund, recovering financial compensation is incomparably easier than it would be via a regular lawsuit. Nonetheless, the help a lawyer who specializes in asbestos cases can provide is still instrumental in obtaining the most satisfactory result, as the legal process will prove quite complex and challenging to carry out on your own, if not downright impossible. The attorneys at Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. have collectively recovered over $1.4 billion for asbestos victims so far and are willing to lend you a helping hand. For quality legal assistance, please contact us today and we will put forward our best approach for your case.
