General Shale Products Corp.

Workers exposed to asbestos

Also known as PJ Brickyard, the company was a manufacturer of construction products that made use of asbestos during the last century. It was located in Marion, Virginia. Former workers recall how they would have to mix asbestos with other substances to make the mud for the bricks. By disturbing asbestos, toxic fibers were released in the air, which were subsequently inhaled and ingested by employees. Today, former General Shale Products Corp. workers are at high risk of developing a disease as a result of occupational asbestos exposure. If you came to struggle with a serious disease after working for this company, please contact our law firm, as we specialize in toxic exposure cases and will help you recover the compensation you deserve for your injury.
