Gardner Denver Inc. is an American manufacturer of industrial equipment and technologies that was established in 1859. They have expanded to over 30 factories worldwide, which operate in three divisions: industrial, energy and medical. Like many other manufacturers, Gardner Denver has used asbestos in their products up until the 80s, when the government regulated it. Because asbestos is an extremely dangerous carcinogen, employees that have been exposed to it may now run the risk of developing serious illnesses.
Workers Exposed to Asbestos Should Keep a Close Eye on Their Health
As an industrial equipment manufacturer, Gardner Denver has produced a variety of products such as compressors, vacuums & blowers, liquid ring pumps, petroleum pumps and couplers. Considering the fact that many of their products were made to withstand high temperatures and needed to be durable and fireproof, asbestos was used as an important component in their manufacturing process. Individuals involved in the manufacturing process or further working with asbestos products, now run the risk of developing serious diseases like mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis.
As these diseases take a long time to start manifesting, it is highly recommended that you constantly check your health state, if you have been exposed to a contaminated environment. In an effort to raise awareness and help catch any signs early on, we offer free screenings to former employees of Gardner Denver. Our team of medical specialists can analyze your latest chest X-ray and let you know if there are any abnormalities you should be worrying about. Contact us and we will gladly answer any question you have.
Victims Affected by Asbestos-Related Lung Diseases Can Receive Compensation
Ever since 1920, asbestos was discovered to be a very dangerous carcinogen. Despite that, manufacturers continued to use it in their products and failed to warn their employees of the risk they were being exposed to. As it was mostly used for its qualities of resisting heat, strengthening materials and fireproofing, workers might still be at risk today when working with old pipes, wires or industrial equipment.
If you have been diagnosed with an asbestos-related lung disease due to your time working at Gardner Denver, you need to take action as soon as possible, since these types of cases usually have a statute of limitation.
