Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Congoleum Corporation workers
For over four decades, asbestos companies have done all in their power to keep the dangers of asbestos exposure a secret from both workers and consumers. From distorting the results of medical studies supporting the carcinogenicity of asbestos to falsely labeling their hazardous products as safe, businesses like Congoleum Corporation went to outrageous lengths to hide the dire health consequences of asbestos exposure. Naturally, when the truth came to light, thousands of former workers suffering from diseases such as lung cancer as a result of occupational exposure, as well as family members whose health was compromised by secondary exposure, took legal action against the liable party, demanding to receive the compensation they deserved.
If you lived in the same house as a former Congoleum Corporation worker and have recently developed a disease correlated with asbestos exposure, such as pulmonary fibrosis or gastrointestinal cancer, we advise you to file a claim against the company with the help of a lawyer who specializes in this area of practice. Having recovered over $1.4 billion for asbestos victims within the past 30 years, our attorneys are the most qualified legal professionals to handle your case. Since the company has a trust fund, recovering compensation is substantially easier than it would have been via litigation. Please contact our lawyers and they will promptly evaluate your case.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
As was the case of many asbestos companies at the time, Congoleum Corporation also sought bankruptcy protection due to the overwhelming number of lawsuits filed against it by former workers injured by asbestos exposure. In 2010, they created a trust fund to provide victims of exposure with the compensation they deserve, which currently has $270 million left for future claimants.
Are you suffering from a disease as a consequence of your employment at Congoleum Corporation? If so, we strongly encourage you to contact our lawyers, who are true experts when it comes to cases of toxic exposure. Along with their resourceful legal team, they will thoroughly evaluate your case, collect reliable evidence to support your asbestos claim, and eventually recover the maximum compensation you are eligible for from the liable party. Since the company has a trust fund, litigation will not be part of the legal process and you will thereby be able to benefit from the money in a relatively short time. Please feel free to give us a call for more information and we will gladly help you.
