Claim Evaluation

Furnco Construction Corp. employees exposed to asbestos

Because asbestos was a very common material during the last century with numerous convenient properties, such as durability and fire resistance, it was heavily employed by the construction industry to make their products last longer, as well as to insulate building materials. By incorporating raw asbestos in construction products without protective equipment, workers inevitably inhaled and ingested millions of toxic fibers that were released in the air by their activities. If you developed a disease as a consequence of occupational asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm, as we provide quality legal assistance and representation to victims of toxic exposure. The occupational groups that were exposed to asbestos products through this company are:

With the help of our expert team, you will file a personal injury claim with Furnco Construction Corp. which will eventually result in the financial compensation you deserve. The only documents necessary for the legal process are your employment and medical records, which will be used as evidence to support your claim. In the meantime, our legal experts will conduct research of their own to find additional proof for your case, which will guarantee a favorable outcome. Eventually, you will receive the compensation you qualify for and the responsible company will be held liable. However, you need 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 is why you should make taking legal action a priority.

Asbestos related cancer eligible for filing a claim

If you developed one of the following cancers as a result of occupational exposure, you are eligible for compensation. If you are too ill, a family member can help you with the legal process. In the unfortunate event that you pass away before recovering compensation, your surviving family members will receive compensation on your behalf.

Lung Cancer Mesothelioma Throat Cancer Esophageal Cancer Bronchial Cancer Gastrointestinal Cancer Colorectal Cancer

If, however, you struggle with non-cancerous pleural diseases such as asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, pleural plaques, pleural effusion, diffuse pleural thickening, COPD (emphysema & chronic bronchitis), pleurisy, lung nodules, lung spots, asthma, pneumonitis, tuberculosis, rounded atelectasis or lung scarring, please seek a second or even a third opinion as the rate of misdiagnosis is very high among the victims of asbestos exposure.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Furnco Construction Corp. workers

Secondary asbestos exposure, which occurs when a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, was very frequent among the family members of Furnco Construction Corp. workers during the last century. Contrary to popular belief, secondary asbestos exposure can be as dangerous as workplace asbestos exposure, since no amount of asbestos is safe for the human body. The wives of asbestos workers were exposed when washing up their clothes, which were covered in toxic dust, whereas their children would breathe in and swallow asbestos fibers when greeting their fathers upon returning home from the job. In the regrettable event that you lived under the same roof as a Furnco Construction Corp. worker and subsequently developed a disease you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, we strongly encourage you to contact our law firm, as we have been pursuing compensation for the family members of asbestos workers for over 25 years. Although the legal process is complex, it will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to send us the employment records of your family member and your medical records, documents which will stand as evidence in your claim, which will be filed against Furnco Construction Corp. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your injury, which will also help you afford superior healthcare and treatment.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

Oftentimes, people who developed a disease as a result of workplace exposure refuse to seek financial compensation from the responsible company, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease that was caused by asbestos exposure, our attorneys, who specialize in toxic exposure cases, will help you file a wrongful death claim against Furnco Construction Corp. to recover the money you deserve on their behalf. The only documents you will need to send your lawyer are the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must clearly state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. With the permanent assistance of our legal team, your involvement in the legal process will be minimal, as we will gladly take care of the remaining paperwork for you. You will eventually receive the maximum compensation you qualify for if you choose to work with our law firm. It is important to know, 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 prompt you to take legal action immediately.
