Daniel International Corp.

Workers exposed to asbestos

Also known as Daniel Construction, the most renowned facility of this company was Hal B. Wansley Power Plant, which was located in northeastern Heard County, Georgia. It was a coal-fired generating facility that made use of significant amounts of asbestos, as the mineral has great resistance to fire. The occupational groups with the heaviest asbestos exposure at Daniel International Corp. were sheet metal workers and insulators, as the former had to install heating, ventilation and air conditioning ducts made with asbestos, whereas the latter had to put asbestos insulation on various components of the facility. In the regrettable event that you came to struggle with a disease as a result of working at this company, please contact our law firm, as our primary area of practice is toxic exposure. With over 25 years of professional experience, our attorneys will help you recover fair compensation for your injury from your former employer.

Daniel International Corp. employees exposed to asbestos

Although sheet metal workers and insulators were the occupational groups with the heaviest asbestos exposure at Daniel International Corp. during the last century, everyone who was present in their facility on a daily basis would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers, as the building had poor ventilation, which only perpetuated asbestos exposure. If you were employed at this company and subsequently developed a disease as a consequence of occupational asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm and we will provide you with quality legal assistance. After a thorough discussion with our legal team, during which you will have to describe the circumstances of your asbestos exposure, our attorneys will promptly begin preparing your personal injury claim for submission. Your involvement in the legal process will be minimal, as you will only have to send your lawyer your employment and medical records, documents that will stand as evidence to support your claim. Eventually, you will receive fair compensation for your disease from the liable company if you choose to work with our law firm. However, it is important to know that asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 3 years from the moment of diagnosis in the majority of states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Daniel International Corp. workers


As a very common occurrence among the family members of asbestos workers, secondary asbestos exposure can be as dangerous as occupational asbestos exposure, as no amount of asbestos is safe for the human body. Because employees were not provided with any protective equipment when handling asbestos on the job, they would often return home with toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair, thereby exposing their family members. Their wives would mostly inhale and ingest asbestos fibers when washing up their work clothes, whereas their children would come in contact with the dangerous mineral when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. If you suffer from a disease you believe is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, which may be the case if you shared a living space with a family member who was working at Daniel International Corp. at the time, we strongly encourage you to contact our law firm for a free of charge case review. While complex and tedious, the legal process will only require you to send your lawyer the employment records of your family member and your medical records, documents that will stand as evidence to support your personal injury claim. In the end, you will recover the maximum compensation available for your physical and emotional distress if you decide to work with our experienced law firm.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

Oftentimes, victims of workplace asbestos exposure refuse to seek the financial compensation they deserve 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 occupational asbestos exposure, we will help you file a wrongful death claim to recover compensation on their behalf, a process that will require minimal involvement on your part. You will only have to provide your attorney with the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as with their death certificate, which must state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. The remaining necessary paperwork will be efficiently taken care of by our resourceful legal team. In the end, within several months to one year, you will receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to on behalf of your lost family member. It is important to keep in mind, however, that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years from the moment of death in most states, which should prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.
