Lane Furniture Co.

Workers exposed to asbestos

Founded in 1912 in Altavista, Virginia by John Lane, the company was a furniture manufacturer. However, because asbestos was a highly present material in numerous construction products, including furniture, people who held down a job at Lane Furniture Co. were exposed to the toxic mineral to a great extent, particularly truck drivers, who would have to load and unload furniture and construction products made with asbestos. By disturbing these products, asbestos fibers would be released in the air, which greatly endangered the health of employees. As a consequence, numerous former Lane Furniture Co. workers now struggle with terrible diseases such as mesothelioma. It is important to know, however, that if you were affected by occupational asbestos exposure, you are eligible for compensation from the liable company.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Lane Furniture Co. workers


During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure would occur very frequently, as workers who handled asbestos on the job would not be provided with the protective equipment they needed, which resulted in them returning home with asbestos fibers on their clothes, as well as on their hair and skin. Therefore, their wives were secondarily exposed to asbestos when washing up their work clothes, while their children would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers upon greeting their fathers after a day of work. If you developed a disease which you suspect is the consequence of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm as, if you lived under the same roof as a Lane Furniture Co. worker, you were inevitably in contact with asbestos. Since 1990, our attorneys have been helping victims of secondary asbestos exposure recover the compensation they deserved and will gladly provide you with the legal assistance you need. The only documents you will have to send your lawyer are the employment records of your family member and your medical records, which will be used as evidence to support your claim filed with the liable company. With the assistance of our attorneys, who specialize in asbestos exposure cases, you are bound to obtain the maximum compensation you are entitled to.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

It is not uncommon for people injured by occupational asbestos exposure to refuse to seek financial compensation while they are alive. Thereby, if you have a family member who worked for Lane Furniture Co. and had a disease which they developed as a consequence of asbestos exposure, you can recover compensation on their behalf with the help of a lawyer whose main area of practice is toxic exposure. However, it is crucial to take legal action as soon as possible, as wrongful death asbestos cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years in the majority of states. If the statute of limitations, which comes into effect from the moment of death, expires, you will no longer qualify for compensation. Our law firm specializes in asbestos exposure cases and will gladly help you obtain the financial compensation you need on behalf of your deceased loved one. While these cases are very complex, our skilful attorneys will promptly file a claim with Lane Furniture Co. to recover the compensation you deserve within the shortest time possible.
