Kerr-McGee

Workers exposed to asbestos

Founded in 1929, the company is located in Oklahoma and was involved in the oil exploitation, the production of crude oil, natural gas and perchlorate and uranium mining. Their employees were heavily exposed to asbestos by working in their facility, as there were numerous hazardous products surrounding workers, such as building materials. Nevertheless, asbestos was also used for the manufacturing of oil, as it has numerous convenient properties, such as fire and electricity resistance, and was also very cheap during the last century. If you came to struggle with a disease as a result of asbestos exposure after working for Kerr-McGee, you are eligible for compensation, which our resourceful attorneys will help you recover from your former employer.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Kerr-McGee workers


During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure was a very common occurrence among the family members of people who were regularly handling the toxic mineral on the job. Because they were not provided with adequate protective equipment to prevent them from inhaling and ingesting asbestos fibers from the air, they would often return home with toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair. Consequently, their wives were exposed to asbestos when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would come in contact with 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, do not hesitate to contact us for a free of charge case review. After a thorough discussion with our attorneys, they will determine whether you are eligible for filing a claim to receive compensation. If you are, they will promptly begin working on your case. The only documents you will have to send your attorney are the employment records of your family member who worked at Kerr-McGee and your medical records, which will be used as evidence to support your claim. In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your diagnosis from the responsible company if you choose to work with our law firm.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

Oftentimes, people who were injured by workplace asbestos exposure refuse to seek the financial compensation they deserve from the liable company 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 asbestos exposure, we will help you file a wrongful death claim to recover compensation on their behalf. While complex and tedious, the 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 clearly state that they passed away due to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. You will eventually receive the maximum compensation you qualify for on behalf of your lost family members if you decide to work with our legal team. It is important, however, to know 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.
