El Du Pont De Nemours and Company

Workers exposed to asbestos

Commonly known as DuPont, the company was founded in 1802 and was located in Wilmington, Delaware. It was a chemical manufacturer, specializing in the production of Teflon, Lycra, Freon, Nomex and Kapton. Some of the major industries DuPont would cater to during the last century were agriculture, electronics and communications, bioscience, nutrition and health, safety and protection and performance materials. Thousands of employees were exposed to asbestos while working at this company, as asbestos has numerous convenient properties, such as resistance to fire, electricity and a wide range of chemicals, and was thereby used by DuPont in large amounts. If you came to struggle with a disease after holding down a job at this company before 1980, do not hesitate to reach out to our law firm, as we specialize in toxic exposure cases and will gladly help you obtain the compensation you are entitled to from your former employer.

Asbestos Screening

El Du Pont De Nemours and Company employees exposed to asbestos

One of the most notorious facilities of DuPont where asbestos was used in tremendous amounts is located in Tonawanda, New York. Nonetheless, asbestos was present in every facility of the company during the last century. While the executives of the company had been aware of the awful health effects of asbestos exposure ever since 1920, they chose to continue using the hazardous mineral for their own financial gain, as asbestos was very cheap at the time. In the regrettable event that you developed a disease as a result of workplace asbestos exposure, we strongly encourage you to contact our law firm, as our attorneys have been pursuing toxic exposure cases since 1990. After you provide your lawyer with your employment and medical records, documents that will stand as evidence to support your case, they will promptly file a personal injury claim for asbestos exposure with DuPont. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your injury from your former employer. 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 prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of El Du Pont De Nemours and Company workers

During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure was a very common occurrence among the family members of DuPont workers, as they were not provided with any protective equipment on the job and would thereby often return home with toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair. Their wives would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers mostly when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would come in contact with the dangerous mineral when greeting their fathers upon coming back home from the job. If you struggle with a disease you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure that occurred when you lived in the same house as a family member who was working at DuPont, please contact our law firm for a free of charge case review. After a thorough discussion with our legal team, our resourceful attorneys will be able to tell you with certainty whether you are eligible for compensation. If you are, your involvement in the legal process will be minimal, as you will only have to send your lawyer the employment records of your family member and your medical records, documents that will be used as evidence to support your claim. In the end, you will obtain the maximum compensation you are entitled to from DuPont if you choose to work with our experienced law firm.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

It is not uncommon for people injured by occupational asbestos exposure to refuse to take legal action during their lifetime, usually out of fear of a long and complicated process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by workplace asbestos exposure, we will help you file a wrongful death claim to obtain financial compensation on their behalf. While very complex, the legal process will only require you to send your attorney the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must clearly state that they passed away due to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. The rest of the necessary paperwork will be carefully taken care of by our skillful legal team. You will eventually obtain fair compensation on behalf of your lost family member if you decide to work with our law firm. 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 the majority of states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.
