H.B. Fuller Company

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

This adhesive manufacturing company was founded in 1887, initially as Fuller Manufacturing Company. In 1915, the company became H.B. Fuller Company and started its road to become one of the most important adhesive producers and distributors in the world. The H.B. Fuller Company is one of the many companies guilty of using asbestos in some of their products. This led to many claims against H.B. Fuller from workers affected of asbestos exposure.

Lung Disease, Significantly Widespread Among Former H.B. Fuller Company Employees

Specializing in the manufacturing of adhesives, H.B. Fuller Company was no exception when it came to knowingly exposing their workers to asbestos. As one of the leading adhesives producers worldwide during the last century, the company is responsible for jeopardizing the health of thousands of workers, who were oblivious to the dangers of occupational asbestos exposure. Nowadays, a considerable number of former H.B. Fuller Company employees are struggling with serious types of lung disease – such as asbestosis or pulmonary fibrosis – as a consequence.

However, since it usually takes between 10 and 50 years for a disease to develop, early signs are often difficult to spot and, to make matters worse, they also mimic the symptoms of less severe conditions, such as asthma or pneumonia. Willing to promote timely detection, the medical specialists at Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. offer asbestos screenings free of charge to people who worked at H.B. Fuller Company. If the company was your employer while they were still using asbestos, we highly encourage you to contact our experts, who will gladly help you keep your health in check. The only document you have to provide is your most recent chest X-ray, which will be thoroughly evaluated to detect a potential disease in your lungs.

Asbestos Exposure Was Also Common in the Households of H.B. Fuller Company Workers

Not only did the unethical attitude of asbestos companies affect workers, but it also took a heavy toll on their family members. Oftentimes, H.B. Fuller Company employees would unknowingly carry home carcinogenic fibers on their work clothes, which could later be inhaled or ingested by a loved one. This is referred to as “secondary asbestos exposure” and can have the same dire health consequences as direct contact with the mineral in occupational settings. While the wives of H.B. Fuller Company workers would usually be exposed to asbestos by laundering their clothes, children would frequently breathe in toxic fibers upon greeting their fathers.

In addition to providing superior legal assistance and representation to people whose contact with asbestos took place on the job, our lawyers also help those who struggle with the effects of secondary exposure recover the compensation they deserve. If you shared the same dwelling with a family member who, at the time, was working at H.B. Fuller Company and are now dealing with a disease such as lung cancer or mesothelioma, please contact our attorneys at your earliest convenience.
