Goodrich Corporation

Workers exposed to asbestos

Located in Charlotte, North Carolina, the company was originally a manufacturer of rubber. It was founded in 1870 in Akron, Ohio. However, over the years, they began manufacturing aerospace components and various chemicals. Because it has numerous convenient properties, such as fire resistance and durability, asbestos was used in large amounts by Goodrich Corporation during the last century, particularly for the production of aerospace components such as aircraft brakes and engine parts. If you developed a disease as a result of workplace asbestos exposure, we strongly encourage you to contact our law firm, as our attorneys have been pursuing toxic exposure cases for over 25 years. They will gladly provide you with quality legal assistance and help you file a claim with your former employer to recover fair compensation for your physical and emotional distress.

Goodrich Corporation employees exposed to asbestos

Warehouse workers were the occupational group with the heaviest asbestos exposure at Goodrich Corporation, as they would have to load and unload products manufactured with asbestos. Once disturbed, these products release millions of toxic fibers in the air, thereby making exposure inevitable. Nonetheless, everyone who held down a job at this company during the last century was exposed to asbestos to a certain extent, as the facilities employees would perform their work in were laden with asbestos, mostly in the form of machinery and equipment insulation and building materials. In the unfortunate event that you came to struggle with a disease as a consequence of working at Goodrich Corporation before 1980, when asbestos use was finally regulated in the workplace, please contact our law firm for a free of charge case review. After a thorough discussion with our skillful legal team, you will find out whether you qualify for compensation. If you do, our attorneys will promptly begin preparing your claim for submission. The only documents we will need from you are your employment and medical records, as the rest of the necessary paperwork will be efficiently handled by our legal experts. Thereby, your involvement in the legal process will be minimal, which will allow you to focus on more important aspects, such as your health and treatment. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to from Goodrich Corporation if you decide to work with our law firm. However, it is important to know that asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 3 years from the moment of diagnosis in most states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Goodrich Corporation workers

Secondary asbestos exposure was a very common occurrence among the family members of Goodrich Corporation during the last century, as workers were not provided with any protective equipment against inhaling and ingesting asbestos fibers, and would thereby often return home with toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair. Their wives would breathe in and swallow asbestos when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would come in contact with the dangerous mineral when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. If you shared a living space with a family member who was working at this company at the time, you were most likely exposed to asbestos as well, which should make you vigilant if you notice a new onset of symptoms. In the unfortunate event that you developed a disease you believe is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact us and we will help you file a personal injury claim with Goodrich Corporation. Your involvement in the legal process will be minimal, as you will only have to provide your attorney with the employment records of your family member and with your medical records, documents that will stand as evidence to support your claim. In the end, you will receive fair compensation for your diagnosis if you decide to work with our experienced law firm, whose main area of practice is toxic exposure.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

It is not uncommon for victims of workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to seek the compensation they deserve while they are alive, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. While very complex, the legal process will require minimal involvement on your part if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure and intend to recover compensation on their behalf. The only documents you will have to send your attorney are the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. Afterward, our resourceful legal team will carefully take care of the remaining necessary paperwork. You will eventually recover the maximum compensation available on behalf of your lost family member if you file a wrongful death asbestos exposure claim with our assistance. It is important to keep in mind, 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 as soon as possible.
