Kentucky Textile Industries Inc.

Workers exposed to asbestos

During the last century, the textile industry was notorious for employing asbestos, as the mineral is durable and has extraordinary resistance to fire and electricity. Kentucky Textile Industries Inc. is, unfortunately, no exception, as they would regularly expose their workers to asbestos. People who operated loom machines that grounded asbestos for the manufacturing of carpets were one of the occupational groups with the heaviest asbestos exposure at this company. Nonetheless, everyone who worked at Kentucky Textile Industries Inc. was exposed to the dangerous mineral to a certain extent. If you developed a serious disease as a consequence of workplace asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to reach out to our law firm, as we specialize in pursuing toxic exposure cases and will help you obtain the financial compensation you deserve for your injury.

Kentucky Textile Industries Inc. employees exposed to asbestos

While the heaviest asbestos exposure occurred in machine operators, everyone who held down a job at Kentucky Textile Industries Inc. came in contact with the carcinogenic mineral to a greater or lesser extent. For this reason, textile mill workers are among the occupational groups at the highest risk of developing a terrible disease as a result of workplace asbestos exposure. In the unfortunate event that you came to struggle with a disease after working for this company before 1980, we are here to help you recover the compensation you are entitled to from your former employer. The only documents we will need from you to start the legal process are your employment and medical records, which will stand as evidence to support your claim. Your involvement in the legal process will be minimal, as the rest of the necessary paperwork will be efficiently handled by our resourceful legal team. Eventually, you will receive fair compensation for your diagnosis from the responsible company if you decide to work with our law firm. However, it is important to know 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 Kentucky Textile Industries Inc. workers

Secondary asbestos exposure occurs when one inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources. It was very common among the family members of textile mill workers during the last century, as employees were not required to wear protective equipment when handling asbestos on the job and would thereby return home covered in toxic dust. While their wives were exposed to asbestos when laundering their work clothes, their children would come in contact with the dangerous mineral 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, do no hesitate to contact us, as we specialize in toxic exposure cases. After you explain your situation to our legal team, they will determine whether you are eligible for filing a claim to receive financial compensation. If you are, the only documents you will need to send your attorney will be the employment records of your family member who worked at Kentucky Textile Industries Inc. and your medical records, which will stand as evidence to support your claim. In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation you qualify for from the negligent company if you choose to work with our skillful legal team.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

It is not uncommon for people injured by workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to seek the compensation they deserve 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 occupational asbestos exposure, our attorneys, who have over 25 years of experience in pursuing toxic exposure cases, will help you file a wrongful death claim, which will result in financial compensation on behalf of your lost family member. While complex and tedious, the legal process will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to provide your attorney with the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as with their death certificate, which must state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. The rest of the necessary paperwork will be efficiently taken care of by our legal team so that you can focus on more important aspects in the meantime. You will eventually receive fair compensation on behalf of your family member if you decide to work with our law firm. 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 the majority of states, which should prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.
