Jefferson Foundry Co. employees exposed to asbestos

Grinders were the occupational group with the heaviest asbestos exposure at Jefferson Foundry Co. during the last century, as they would use raw asbestos to polish and smooth the metal castings. As a consequence, they are now at high risk of developing a terrible disease, since asbestos is a known human carcinogen. Thereby, if you worked as a grinder for this company and experience a new onset of symptoms, please seek medical attention immediately, as you may be suffering from a disease related to occupational asbestos exposure. In the regrettable case that you already have a diagnosis, our attorneys are ready to help you file a claim with your former employer, which will result in financial compensation. The only documents we will need from you are your employment and medical records, which will stand as evidence to support your claim. Afterward, the remaining paperwork will be carefully taken care of by our skillful legal team. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to from the liable company. 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 Jefferson Foundry Co. workers

During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure was highly prevalent among the family members of Jefferson Foundry Co. workers. Since employees were not provided with adequate protective equipment when working with asbestos, they would often bring home toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair. Thereby, their wives would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers when washing up their work clothes, whereas their children would be exposed to asbestos when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. If you struggle with a disease you believe is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm and we will determine whether you are eligible for compensation. If you are, our attorneys will begin working on your case as soon as you send them the employment records of your family member and your medical records, documents that will be used as evidence to support your claim. The rest of the paperwork will be carefully handled by our resourceful legal team. In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your injury from the liable company if you decide to work with our law firm.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

It is not uncommon for victims of workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to seek financial compensation while they are alive, 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 can help you file a wrongful death claim to recover compensation on their behalf. The only documents we will need from you are their employment and medical records, as well as their death certificate, which must state that they passed away due to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. While complex and tedious, the legal process will require minimal involvement on your part so that you can focus on more important aspects in the meantime. You will eventually receive fair compensation on behalf of your deceased loved ones if you choose to work with our law firm, which has been pursuing toxic exposure cases since 1990. 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.
