Jersey Central Power and Light Company

Workers exposed to asbestos

Located in New Jersey, the company exposed construction workers and laborers to asbestos to a great extent during the last century. It was founded in 1925, when asbestos was heavily employed by power generating companies in their machinery and equipment, as the mineral, which is carcinogenic to humans, has extraordinary insulating and fire resistance properties. Today, up to 20% of former construction workers struggle with a terrible disease as a consequence of occupational asbestos exposure. If you were exposed to asbestos while working at Jersey Central Power and Light Company and came to struggle with a disease, you are entitled to financial compensation, which a lawyer whose main area of practice is toxic exposure will help you recover from the liable company.

Asbestos Screening

Jersey Central Power and Light Company employees exposed to asbestos

As previously mentioned, the company exposed mostly construction workers and laborers to asbestos before 1980, when proper regulations concerning asbestos use finally came into effect. Furthermore, the employees of the power generation plant were also exposed to asbestos, although to a lesser extent, as they would often have to maintain and repair machinery and equipment insulated with asbestos. By disturbing asbestos products, toxic fibers were inevitably released in the air, from which employees would inhale and ingest them. If you developed a serious disease as a consequence of working for Jersey Central Power and Light Company, our skillful attorneys, who specialize in toxic exposure cases, will help you file a claim with the responsible company, as they are still in business today. While the legal process is complex and tedious, your involvement will be minimal, as you will only have to provide your lawyer with your employment and medical records, documents that will be used as evidence for your personal injury claim. Because pertinent evidence must accompany your claim, our resourceful legal experts will conduct research of their own to discover additional proof for your case. Eventually, you will recover the maximum compensation you qualify for if you choose to work with our law firm. However, it is important to keep in mind 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 Jersey Central Power and Light Company workers


If you shared a living space with a family member who was working for Jersey Central Power and Light Company during the last century, you were also exposed to asbestos. Since employees were not provided with adequate protective equipment to wear on the job while working with asbestos, they would often return home covered in toxic dust. Secondary asbestos exposure would thereby occur. While their wives were exposed to asbestos when washing up their work clothes, their children came in contact with carcinogenic fibers when greeting their fathers upon returning home from work. In the regrettable event that you came to suffer from a disease as a consequence of secondary asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm and we will gladly help you obtain the compensation you deserve for your physical and emotional distress. After you describe your circumstances of exposure to our attorneys, they will promptly begin working on your claim, which will be filed with the responsible company. The only documents you will have to send your lawyer are the employment records of your family member and your medical records, as your claim must be accompanied by pertinent evidence. In the end, our attorneys, who have been pursuing compensation for the family members of asbestos victims since 1990, will recover the maximum compensation you are entitled to from Jersey Central Power and Light Company.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

Oftentimes, victims of occupational asbestos exposure fail to take legal action during their lifetime, usually out of fear of a long and complicated process. Nevertheless, if one of your family members who was employed at Jersey Central Power and Light Company and who was suffering from a disease as a result of workplace asbestos exposure passed away, you can file a wrongful death claim with the company to recover the compensation you deserve on their behalf. With over 25 years of experience in this area of practice, our attorneys will carefully prepare your claim so that you can recover the maximum compensation you qualify for from the liable company. The only documents your attorney will need are the employment and medical records of your lost family member, as well as their death certificate, which must state that their cause of death was a disease stemming from occupational asbestos exposure. After providing these documents, which will be used as evidence in your wrongful death claim, our resourceful legal team will promptly begin working on your case and gathering additional proof for your claim. Eventually, you will obtain the compensation you deserve on behalf of your deceased loved one 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 immediately.
