Ingersoll-Rand Company

Workers exposed to asbestos

Ingersoll-Rand is one of the leading manufacturing companies that provide industrial equipment like mining, drilling machinery, and power tools. Founded in 1905, its main divisions were: industrial technologies, climate control technologies, and security technologies. Today, their main focus is on mining and construction equipment as well as drilling and blasting procedures. Employees working at Ingersoll-Rand may have been exposed to asbestos while manufacturing pumps or compressors.

Ingersoll-Rand employees exposed to asbestos

During the last century, Ingersoll-Rand made use of asbestos in large amounts, as the mineral has numerous convenient properties, such as excellent resistance to fire, electricity and a wide range of chemicals. Furthermore, it was also very cheap at the time. It is worthy of note that veterans may also have been exposed to asbestos by using the products of this company while they were serving in the military. The occupations at the highest risk of developing a serious disease as a result of exposure to the asbestos products of this company are:

Manufacturers up until the 1980s, often chose to use asbestos in their products because it was a cheap alternative that provided not only durability but also heat and fire protection. Ingersoll-Rand was one of the companies that exposed their workers to asbestos fibers, by integrating it in their products and by using equipment containing it. As they have failed in warning their employees of the risks coming with this type of exposure as well as failing to provide proper protection, former employees may now be at risk of developing serious diseases. As asbestos-related diseases can take a long time to start showing signs, it’s extremely important to constantly check on your health.

Victims of secondary asbestos exposure need to take action in order to get compensated

As early as the 1920s, studies have shown there is a link between asbestos exposure and serious diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, or asbestosis. Despite that, manufacturers still chose to work with it, exposing their employees to huge health risks. Ingersoll-Rand is one of the companies who disregarded the warnings about asbestos effects. As a result, many of their former workers have filed lawsuits against them in the last years, on account of their debilitating health state as a result of asbestos exposure. Employees at the biggest risk of developing serious diseases are those who have worked not only in the manufacturing process but also in maintenance.

It often happened that workers would bring asbestos dust into their home, embedded in their clothes, thus exposing their family members as well. Secondary asbestos exposure can also lead to severe diseases and victims affected by it are also entitled to receiving compensation. If you develop a disease as a result of secondary exposure, contact us as soon as possible so we can review your case.
