Jackson Chair Company Inc.

Workers exposed to asbestos

As a manufacturer of furniture, Jackson Chair Company Inc. was a company that exposed their employees to asbestos before 1980, when the use of asbestos was finally regulated in the workplace. Carpenters and machine operators were the occupational groups with the heaviest asbestos exposure at this company, as they would have to disturb asbestos products on a regular basis. By disturbing asbestos products, millions of toxic fibers are released in the air, making exposure inevitable. If you developed a serious disease as a consequence of working at Jackson Chair Company Inc. we will help you file a claim with your former employer to recover the financial compensation you are eligible for. With over 25 years of experience in pursuing toxic exposure cases, our attorneys will provide you with quality legal assistance.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Jackson Chair Company Inc. workers

During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure was a very common occurrence among the family members of Jackson Chair Company Inc. workers, as they were not provided with the protective equipment they needed when handling asbestos on the job. Thereby, employees would often return home with toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair. While their wives would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers when laundering their work clothes, their children would come in contact with the harmful mineral when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. If you developed a disease you believe is the consequence of secondary asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm for a free of charge case review. After you thoroughly describe the circumstances of your asbestos exposure to our legal team, our knowledgeable attorneys will promptly begin preparing your claim for submission. The only documents you will have to provide your attorney with are the employment records of your family member who worked at Jackson Chair Company Inc. and your medical records, which will stand as evidence to support your claim. In the end, within several months to one year, you will receive the maximum compensation available from the liable company.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure, our attorneys will file a wrongful death claim on their behalf so that you can recover compensation. While complex and tedious, the legal process will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to send your lawyer 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, documents that will be used as evidence to support your claim. You will eventually receive the maximum compensation you qualify for from the responsible company if you decide to work with our skillful legal team. 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 most states, which should prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.
