Goodyear Tire & Rubber

Workers exposed to asbestos

Founded in 1898, the company is a manufacturer of automotive components with the headquarters currently in Akron, Ohio. Before 1980, when the use of asbestos was finally regulated in the workplace, employees would regularly be exposed to the toxic mineral, as they were not provided with the protective equipment they needed when maintaining and repairing automotive components. Thereby, mechanics are the occupational group with the highest risk of developing a disease as a result of occupational asbestos exposure. If you were a mechanic who was exposed to asbestos while working at Goodyear Tire & Rubber and subsequently developed a serious disease, please contact our law firm to recover the compensation you are entitled to.

Goodyear Tire & Rubber employees exposed to asbestos

A large number of the employees of Goodyear Tire & Rubber were auto mechanics, who would be heavily exposed to asbestos when installing, maintaining and repairing components such as brakes and clutches. Because asbestos has numerous convenient properties, such as resistance to fire and electricity, it was involved in the manufacturing of automotive components during the last century. In the unfortunate event that you came to struggle with a disease as a result of working at this company, do not hesitate to reach out to us, as our law firm specializes in toxic exposure cases and our attorneys have been pursuing compensation for the victims of asbestos exposure for over 25 years. After a thorough discussion with our legal team, during which you will be asked to describe the circumstances of your asbestos exposure, you will only have to provide your lawyer with your employment and medical records, documents that will be used as evidence to support your claim. The rest of the necessary paperwork will be efficiently taken care of by our resourceful legal team. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your diagnosis from the liable company. However, it is important 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 should make taking legal action a priority for you.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Goodyear Tire & Rubber workers


Secondary asbestos exposure occurs when a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources. It was very common among the family members of Goodyear Tire & Rubber employees during the last century, as workers were not required to wear any protective equipment when handling asbestos products. Thereby, they would often return home covered in asbestos dust. While their wives were mostly exposed to asbestos when laundering their work clothes, their children would breathe in and swallow dangerous fibers when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. If you struggle with a disease you believe is the consequence of secondary asbestos exposure, we strongly encourage you to contact our law firm, as we may be able to recover financial compensation for you. The case review is free of charge and confidential. In the fortunate event that you are eligible for compensation, our skillful attorneys will file a claim with Goodyear Tire & Rubber to obtain the financial compensation you deserve for your injury. The only documents we will need from you are the employment records of your family member and your medical records, which will stand as evidence to support your claim. Afterward, the remaining paperwork will be carefully handled by our legal team, so your involvement in the legal process will be minimal. In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation available from the negligent company if you choose to work with our law firm.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

Oftentimes, people who were injured by occupational asbestos exposure refuse to seek the compensation they deserve from their former employer, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by workplace asbestos exposure, we are here to help you file a wrongful death claim to recover financial 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 clearly state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. Our attorneys, who have been pursuing toxic exposure cases since 1990, will gladly provide you with quality legal assistance and take care of all the paperwork on your behalf so that you can focus on more important aspects in the meantime. Within several months, you will receive the compensation you deserve on behalf of your lost family member. It is important to keep in mind, however, that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years in most states, which should prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.
