Dan River Inc.

Workers exposed to asbestos

Located in Virginia, the company was a manufacturer of cotton, as well as sheeting, ginghams, and chambrays. Because the equipment and machinery they employed for the manufacturing of textile products were insulated with asbestos, moderate asbestos exposure occurred in the majority of the workers of Dan River Inc. However, since no amount of asbestos is safe for the human body, former employees are today at considerable risk of developing a terrible disease such as lung cancer or mesothelioma as a consequence of occupational asbestos exposure. The company has been operating since the late 1800s and has over 3,500 employees, as it is still in business at the moment. It is important to know that if you came to struggle with a disease after working at Dan River Inc. you have the right to seek financial compensation, which a lawyer whose main area of practice is toxic exposure will help you receive.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Dan River Inc. workers


Family members who lived under the same roof as a Dan Rivers Inc. employee were most likely secondarily exposed to asbestos, which poses a serious risk of developing a terrible disease. Thereby, if you shared a living space with a worker who handled asbestos products without protective equipment, which was lacking during the last century, you were inevitably exposed to asbestos indirectly, by inhaling and ingesting the asbestos fibers they would bring home on their clothes, as well as on their hair and skin. The wives of Dan River Inc. employees would be exposed to asbestos while laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers when greeting their fathers upon returning home from the job covered in asbestos dust. If you were diagnosed with a disease that you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, please contact our attorneys immediately, as they will be able to help you recover the compensation you deserve for your disease. They will carefully evaluate your case and, if you are deemed eligible for filing a claim for secondary asbestos exposure, they will provide you with quality legal assistance. Eventually, you will recover the financial compensation you deserve, which will also help you afford better healthcare and treatment.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

Oftentimes, people who developed a disease as a result of occupational asbestos exposure refuse to take legal action while they are alive. In this case, their surviving family members can recover compensation on their behalf with the help of a lawyer who specializes in toxic exposure cases.

With over 25 years of experience in obtaining financial compensation for the surviving family members of former asbestos workers, our attorneys will provide you with superior legal assistance and your involvement in the process will be minimal, as you will only have to offer your lawyer the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one and their death certificate, documents which will be used as evidence to support your wrongful death claim with Dan River Inc. Eventually, you will recover fair compensation on behalf of your lost family member.
