Firestone Coated Fabrics

Workers exposed to asbestos

Currently located in North Carolina, the company used to manufacture fuel cells for aircraft during the last century, which exposed numerous employees to asbestos. They are electrochemical cells that convert the chemical energy of a fuel into electricity. Fuel cells work similarly to batteries, but they do not require recharging, as they function as long as they have fuel. Because various chemicals and insulation were necessary for the production of fuel cells, asbestos was highly prevalent in the facilities of Firestone Coated Fabrics. If you were exposed to asbestos by this company and subsequently came to struggle with a serious disease, please contact our law firm at your earliest convenience, as you are eligible for compensation. With over 25 years of experience in providing quality legal assistance and representation to asbestos victims, our attorneys will gladly help you obtain the compensation you deserve for your physical and emotional suffering.

Claim Evaluation

Firestone Coated Fabrics employees exposed to asbestos

While the legal process is complex, it will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to provide your attorneys with your employment and medical records, documents that will be used as evidence to support your claim. Furthermore, because solid evidence must accompany your claim, our resourceful legal experts will conduct research of their own to discover additional proof for your case. A personal injury claim will be filed with the company, which is bound to result in fair compensation for you, eventually. 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 Firestone Coated Fabrics workers

Occurring when a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure was very frequent among the family members of asbestos workers during the last century. Since they were not given any protective equipment when handling asbestos, employees would often come back home from the job with asbestos dust on their clothes, skin and hair. While their wives would breathe in and swallow asbestos fibers when laundering their work clothes, their children would be exposed to the dangerous mineral when greeting their fathers upon returning home. This is how secondary asbestos exposure occurred during the last century. If you developed a disease you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm, as we specialize in toxic exposure cases. After a thorough evaluation, our attorneys will be able to tell you with certainty if you qualify for compensation. If you do, they will promptly begin working on your claim, which will be filed against Firestone Coated Fabrics. The only documents you will have to send your lawyer are the employment records of your family member and your medical records, which will be used as evidence to support your case. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your physical and emotional distress.

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 seek financial compensation for their disease during their lifetime, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal 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 with Firestone Coated Fabrics to recover the compensation you are entitled to as a surviving family member. All you have to do is explain your situation to our legal team and provide your attorneys with the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as with their death certificate, which must state that they lost their life to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. Subsequently, our legal team will begin working on your claim by preparing the other necessary paperwork and by conducting extensive research to discover additional evidence for your claim. Eventually, you will receive fair compensation on behalf of your family member. It is important, however, to keep in mind 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.
