Eastman Kodak Company

Workers exposed to asbestos

Founded in 1888, the company specializes in manufacturing camera products, as well as packaging, functional printing, graphic communications and services for businesses worldwide. During the last century, numerous employees of Eastman Kodak Company would be exposed to asbestos on the job, as the dangerous mineral was used for the production of various chemicals, since it has great resistance to a wide range of toxic substances. Supervisors were one of the occupational groups at the highest risk of asbestos exposure, as they would have to oversee the chemicals which were being manufactured at the facility. Today, people who developed a serious disease as a consequence of workplace asbestos exposure are eligible for compensation from the liable company, which a lawyer whose main area of practice is toxic exposure will help them recover.

Eastman Kodak Company employees exposed to asbestos

Before 1980, when the use of asbestos was finally regulated in the workplace, people who had to handle this dangerous mineral on the job were inevitably exposed to it, as they were not provided with any protective equipment to prevent them from inhaling and ingesting toxic airborne fibers. Employees of Eastman Kodak Company are unfortunately no exception, as they would have to use asbestos for the manufacturing of various chemicals necessary for photography. If you came to struggle with a disease as a result of occupational asbestos exposure which occurred at this company, please contact our law firm, as we can help you recover the financial compensation you deserve for your physical and emotional suffering. You will only have to provide your attorney with your employment and medical records, documents that will be used as evidence for your claim with the responsible company. Because pertinent evidence must accompany your claim, our resourceful legal experts will also conduct research to discover additional proof for your case, which will guarantee a favorable outcome. In the end, you will receive the compensation you deserve from Eastman Kodak Company, which will also help you afford better healthcare and treatment for your disease. However, it is important to keep in mind that asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 3 years from the moment of diagnosis in most states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Eastman Kodak Company workers

Since they were not given any protective equipment when working with asbestos, workers would often return home with toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair, which led to secondary asbestos exposure among their family members. Thereby, their wives would inhale and ingest asbestos when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would come in contact with asbestos when greeting their fathers upon coming back home from the job. Secondary asbestos exposure was a very frequent occurrence among the family members of asbestos workers during the last century, which is why today, numerous people who have never directly touched asbestos suffer from terrible diseases. If you developed a disease you believe is the consequence of secondary asbestos exposure, we strongly encourage you to contact our law firm, as we specialize in toxic exposure cases and will gladly help you recover the compensation you deserve. While the legal process is complex, you will only need to provide your lawyer with the employment records of your family member who worked at Eastman Kodak Company and with your medical records, documents that will be used as evidence to support your claim. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation available if you choose to work with our law firm. It is important to know that we work on a contingency fee basis, which means that you will not have to pay our legal team any money unless they recover compensation for you.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

Oftentimes, people who were injured by occupational asbestos exposure are reluctant to seek financial compensation, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member who was struggling with a disease as a result of workplace exposure and who had not taken legal action during their lifetime, we will help you file a wrongful death claim so that you can recover the compensation you deserve on their behalf. The only necessary documents are the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must state that they passed away due to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. Since 1990, we have been helping the surviving family members of asbestos workers obtain the compensation they were entitled to from the liable company and we will gladly do the same for you. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation you are eligible for from Eastman Kodak Company. It is important, however, to know 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 should prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.
