Kalmar Steel Corporation

Workers exposed to asbestos

Located in Magnolia, Arkansas, the company operates today under the name of Kalmar Global. It was a manufacturer of forklift trucks, reachstackers and terminal tractors. For their products, they made use of considerable amounts of asbestos, as pipes, slabs, coils and liquid metals were involved. Today, people who worked at Kalmar Steel Corporation are at high risk of developing a serious disease as a result of occupational asbestos exposure. If you came to struggle with a disease as a consequence of workplace asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm, as we specialize in pursuing compensation for the victims of toxic exposure.

Asbestos Screening

Kalmar Steel Corporation employees exposed to asbestos

Because they would handle asbestos products without protective equipment, former workers of Kalmar Steel Corporation were inevitably exposed to this dangerous mineral, as when disturbed, materials which contain asbestos release million of toxic fibers in the air. To make matters worse, the facilities in which the employees of this company performed their job were poorly ventilated, which only increased the level of asbestos exposure, since the fibers would linger in the air for a long period of time. In the unfortunate case that you developed a disease after working at Kalmar Steel Corporation, we can help you recover the compensation you deserve for your physical and emotional suffering. Our attorneys, who have been pursuing asbestos cases for over 25 years, will thoroughly evaluate your case and subsequently begin working on your claim. The only documents you will need to provide are your employment and medical records, which will be used as evidence to support your claim with Kalmar Steel Corporation. Furthermore, because solid proof must accompany your claim, our resourceful legal experts will conduct research of their own to discover additional evidence for your case. Eventually, you will receive the maximum amount of compensation available from the liable company, which will also help you afford better healthcare and treatment. 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 Kalmar Steel Corporation workers

During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure was a very frequent occurrence among the family members of asbestos workers, as employees would often return home with asbestos dust on their clothes, skin and hair. By laundering their work clothes, their wives would unavoidably inhale and ingest toxic fibers, whereas their children would be exposed to asbestos when greeting their fathers upon coming back home from the job. If you suffer from a disease you believe is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm, as you may be entitled to compensation. After the initial discussion with our skillful attorneys, they will begin gathering the necessary documents to file a claim on your behalf. 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 records of your family member who worked with asbestos and your medical records, which will stand as evidence in your personal injury claim. The claim will be filed with Kalmar Steel Corporation, as they are indirectly responsible for your diagnosis. In the end, you will receive the money you deserve for your diagnosis if you choose to work with our law firm. It is important to know that we work on a contingency fee basis, which means that you will not have to pay our legal team anything unless they obtain financial compensation for you.

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 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 that occurred as a consequence of occupational asbestos exposure, you can file a wrongful death claim to recover compensation on their behalf. With the assistance of our attorneys, whose primary area of practice is toxic exposure, you will eventually obtain fair compensation. The only documents you will need to send your attorney are 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 caused by asbestos exposure. Our experienced legal team will subsequently file a wrongful death claim with Kalmar Steel Corporation, which will result in the maximum compensation you qualify for. It is important, however, to keep in mind 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.
