If You Worked at Flexitallic Gasket Company Before 1986, You Should Closely Monitor Your Health
As the name implies, Flexitallic Gasket Company, nowadays headquartered in Houston, Texas, is a business specializing in the production of static sealing products. While the gaskets manufactured by the company today are completely asbestos-free, they did not use to be the same throughout the last century, which has later prompted over 150,000 former workers to file personal injury claims against it. Since asbestos is highly resistant to fire, as well as a very durable raw material, it proved to be the perfect ingredient for gaskets. However, with wear and tear, these products would unavoidably become friable, easily releasing toxic asbestos fibers in the air. Therefore, the health of both Flexitallic Gasket Company employees and consumers was at stake.
Exposure to asbestos, particularly in occupational settings, is notorious for causing a wide range of diseases, varying in severity from asbestosis to mesothelioma. Are you suffering from such a disease as a result of your employment at Flexitallic Gasket Company? If so, we urge you to take legal action at your earliest convenience, as you are eligible for financial compensation from the asbestos trust fund of the company, which was established in 2007. No longer able to pay out money to workers injured by asbestos exposure, the company found itself needed to file for bankruptcy protection in 2001 and accordingly, their trust fund is today the primary source of compensation to people whose health was affected by their products or professional activity. Specializing in toxic exposure cases, our lawyers will assist you with recovering the compensation you deserve from Flexitallic Gasket Company and hold your former employer liable.
