H.B. Zachry Construction

Workers exposed to asbestos

The company was founded in 1924 and was a major part of the construction industry at the time. It was also known as Bexar Canyon Management Inc. and was located in San Antonio, Texas. Because it has numerous convenient properties, such as fire resistance, asbestos was commonly used by H.B. Zachry Construction during the last century, mostly as insulation for the building materials they would manufacture. For this reason, numerous former workers struggle with terrible diseases such as lung cancer and mesothelioma today. If you developed a disease after working at H.B. Zachry Construction, please reach out to our law firm, as we specialize in asbestos exposure cases and will promptly help you recover the compensation you deserve for your injury.

H.B. Zachry Construction employees exposed to asbestos

Laborers were the occupational group with the heaviest asbestos exposure at H.B. Zachry Construction during the last century, as they would have to handle asbestos directly for the manufacturing of construction products. Nonetheless, everyone who was employed at this company was exposed to asbestos to a certain extent, which is why if you are a former worker, you should keep a close eye on your health. In the unfortunate event that you developed a serious disease after working at H.B. Zachry Construction, our skillful attorneys will help you file a claim for asbestos exposure with the liable company. While the legal process is very complex, it will require minimal involvement on your part, as 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 paperwork will be efficiently taken care of by our legal team. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation available from your former employer if you choose 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 H.B. Zachry Construction workers


During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure, which occurs when a person inhales or ingests toxic fibers from indirect sources, was very common among the family members of H.B. Zachry Construction workers. Since employees were not required to wear adequate protective equipment when handling asbestos on the job, they would often bring asbestos dust home on their clothes, skin and hair. Their wives would thereby be exposed to asbestos when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would breathe in and swallow toxic fibers when greeting their father upon returning home from the job. If you struggle with a disease you believe is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, we strongly encourage you to contact us, as our law firm has been pursuing toxic exposure cases since 1990. After you explain the circumstances of your exposure, our attorneys will promptly begin preparing your claim for submission. 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. In the end, you will recover fair compensation for your physical and emotional distress if you decide to work with out resourceful legal team.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

Oftentimes, victims of workplace asbestos exposure refuse to take legal action during their lifetime, usually out of fear of a long and complicated process. While the legal process is very complex, your involvement will be minimal if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure and want to recover compensation on their behalf. All you have to do is thoroughly explain your situation to our legal team and provide your attorney with the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as with their death certificate, which must state that they passed away due to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. The remaining necessary paperwork will be efficiently taken care of by our legal team. You will eventually receive the maximum compensation available on behalf of your lost family member if you choose to work with our law firm. It is important to know, 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.
