Citgo Refinery

Workers exposed to asbestos

Also known as Citcon Oil Corp. and Cities Service Oil Company, this company did not manufacture asbestos products, but workers were exposed to asbestos by maintaining and repairing the machinery and equipment used to produce oil. Thereby, former employees are now at great risk of developing a serious disease as a consequence of occupational asbestos exposure. Furthermore, asbestos was present in the construction materials the facilities they worked in would contain. In the unfortunate case that you came to struggle with a disease after working at Citgo Refinery, you can recover the financial compensation you deserve with the assistance of a lawyer who specializes in toxic exposure cases. The company was located in Houston, Texas.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Citgo Refinery workers


If you lived under the same roof as a Citgo Refinery worker, you were inevitably exposed to asbestos as well. Secondary asbestos exposure was a very frequent occurrence during the last century, as people who handled asbestos on the job would not be provided with the protective equipment they needed, which resulted in them returning home with asbestos fibers on their clothes, skin, and hair. By laundering their work clothes, the wives of Citgo Refinery workers would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers, whereas their children would be exposed to asbestos when greeting their fathers upon returning home from the job. In the regrettable event that you developed a disease which you suspect is the consequence of secondary asbestos exposure, we strongly advise you to take legal action. Our attorneys, who have been helping the victims of secondary asbestos exposure since 1990, will help you file a claim with the responsible company, which will result in the maximum compensation you are entitled to. The money you will receive by filing a claim will also help you afford better healthcare and treatment. Thereby, if you are a victim of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm, as we will gladly provide you with the legal assistance you need. The only documents you will need to send your attorney are the employment records of your family member who worked at Citgo Refinery and your medical records, which will serve as evidence for your asbestos claim. Our attorneys and legal team will promptly take care of the remaining legal aspects on your behalf.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

The surviving family members of a victim of asbestos exposure who did not take legal action during their lifetime can file a wrongful death claim to recover financial compensation on the behalf of their deceased loved one. Our attorneys will help you throughout the entire legal process, which will result in the most favorable outcome if you choose to work with our law firm. The documents you will need to provide your lawyer with are the employment and medical records of your family members, as well as their death certificate, which must state that their death was the cause of a disease that stemmed from workplace asbestos exposure. Nevertheless, it is important to keep in mind 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, if it expires, you will lose your right to obtaining compensation. Consequently, we strongly encourage you to take legal action immediately.
