Lion Chemical Corporation

Workers exposed to asbestos

Founded in 1977, the company is no longer located in the United States, but in the Philippines. During the last century, however, it used to manufacture various chemicals with the use of asbestos, as the mineral is resistant to multiple toxic agents. Thereby, numerous workers were exposed to asbestos on the job, which is why today, a significant number of them came to struggle with a terrible disease such as lung cancer or mesothelioma. In the regrettable event that you developed a disease several decades after holding down a job at Lion Chemical Corporation, you are eligible for compensation, which our experienced attorneys will help you recover.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Lion Chemical Corporation workers

Occurring when a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure would be very frequent among the family members of asbestos workers during the last century, as employees were not provided with the protective equipment they needed when handling asbestos products. As a consequence, they would often return home covered in asbestos fibers, which were present on their clothes, skin and hair. This was also the case of Lion Chemical Corporation workers. While their wives would be exposed to asbestos when washing up their work clothes, their children would breathe in and swallow toxic fibers when greeting their fathers upon coming back home from the job. Over the last 25 years, we have provided quality legal assistance and representation to victims of secondary asbestos exposure and will do the same for you in the unfortunate event that you developed a serious disease after sharing a living space with a Lion Chemical Corporation worker. The only documents we will need from you are the employment records of your family member who worked with asbestos and your medical records, which will be used as evidence in your claim. In the meantime, you can focus on your health and treatment, as our skillful legal team will efficiently take care of the remaining paperwork. Eventually, you will receive fair compensation for your injury, which may take between 3 months and one year, depending on the complexity of your case. It is worthy of note that our law firm works on a contingency fee basis, which means that you do not owe our attorneys anything unless they obtain financial compensation for you.

Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure which occurred at Lion Chemical Corporation, we will help you file a wrongful death claim with the liable company, which will eventually result in the compensation you deserve on their behalf. Since 1990, our attorneys have been pursuing asbestos exposure cases, recovering billions for the surviving family members of former asbestos workers and will gladly help you, too.

In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation you qualify for from the responsible company on their behalf if you decide to work with our legal team. 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 the majority of states, which should prompt you to take legal action immediately.
