Thousands of Former Leslie Controls Workers Began Developing Terrible Diseases after 1980 as a Consequence of Asbestos Exposure
In business since the beginning of the last century, Leslie Controls specializes in the manufacturing of various products, including industrial water heaters and control systems, insulation, steam pressure valves, pipes, as well as regulators. Similarly to dozens of other companies, it also made use of tremendous amounts of asbestos. In addition to the people who partook in the manufacturing process, Navy veterans are also at significant risk for developing a serious disease, particularly those who were involved in the maintenance of ships and those who spent a lot of time in the engine, boiler, or pump room. Furthermore, individuals responsible for the maintenance of chemical plants, oil refineries, power plants, gas refineries, and water plants might have come in contact with Leslie Controls products, too.
As the company could no longer afford to pay out compensation to workers injured by asbestos exposure, it was forced to seek bankruptcy protection in 2010. One year later, their asbestos trust fund was created, which, at the moment, has roughly $75 million. If you suffer from a disease associated with asbestos exposure as a result of your employment at Leslie Controls, we encourage you to take legal action as soon as possible. Because the company has a trust fund, recovering compensation is incomparably easier than via a regular lawsuit. With the help of a lawyer, it is a relatively fast process which requires minimal involvement on your part.
