Lear Siegler Products Inc.

Workers exposed to asbestos

Founded in 1962, the company was a manufacturer of automotive components such as car seats and brakes, as well as of weapons control systems for military fighter planes. It is located in Livingstone, New Jersey and has nearly 30,000 employees. However, during the last century, Lear Siegler Products Inc. made use of considerable amounts of asbestos for the manufacturing of brakes, as the mineral is resistant to fire, electricity and various chemicals. For this reason, numerous former employees have recently come to struggle with terrible diseases as a result of workplace asbestos exposure. If you developed a disease after working at this company before 1980, when the use of asbestos was finally regulated on the job, please contact our law firm, as we specialize in toxic exposure cases.

Claim Evaluation

Lear Siegler Products Inc. employees exposed to asbestos

Among the occupational groups with the heaviest asbestos exposure at Lear Siegler Products Inc. are machine operators, grinders and mixers. Because they were not required to wear any protective equipment when handling asbestos, the exposure would inevitably occur. Today, they are at high risk of developing a serious disease, such as lung cancer or mesothelioma. The occupations at the highest risk of developing a serious disease as a result of the asbestos exposure through this company are:

In the regrettable event that you struggle with a disease as a result of occupational asbestos exposure, we strongly encourage you to take legal action and contact our law firm, as our attorneys have been pursuing toxic exposure cases for over 25 years. While complex and tedious, the legal process will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to send your attorney your employment and medical records. The rest of the paperwork will be efficiently taken care of by our resourceful legal team. Your attorney will file a claim with the liable company, which will eventually result in fair compensation for you. 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 the majority of states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.

It is worthy of note that veterans may also have been exposed to asbestos by using the products of this company while they were serving in the military.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Lear Siegler Products Inc. workers

If you lived under the same roof as a family member who was working at Lear Siegler Products Inc. at the time, you were most likely exposed to asbestos as well, since employees were not provided with any protective equipment during the last century and thereby, they would often return home with toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair. Their wives would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would come in contact with the dangerous mineral when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. Contrary to popular belief, secondary asbestos exposure can be as harmful as occupational asbestos exposure, as no amount of asbestos is safe for the human body. There are numerous family members of asbestos workers who came to suffer from terrible diseases as a consequence of secondary asbestos exposure. If you have a disease you believe is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm for a free of charge case review. After the initial discussion with our attorneys, during which you will be asked to describe the circumstances of your asbestos exposure, our legal team will promptly begin preparing your claim for submission if you are eligible for compensation. In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your diagnosis from the liable company if you decide to work with our law firm.

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 from their former employer, 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, we will help you file a wrongful death claim with Lear Siegler Products Inc. to recover financial compensation on their behalf. While the legal process is very complex, it 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 carefully handled by our skillful legal team. You will eventually receive fair compensation on behalf of your lost family member if you choose to work with our law firm, as our main area of practice is toxic exposure. 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 most states, which should prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.
