Lufkin Iron Foundry

Workers exposed to asbestos

Founded in 1930 in Texas, Lufkin Iron Foundry is responsible for having exposed their workers to asbestos, which now places former employees at high risk of developing a terrible disease. In 2015, the company went out of business. However, they do not have a trust fund to provide the victims of occupational asbestos exposure with the compensation they need. For this reason, if you developed a disease as a result of working at Lufkin Iron Foundry, our skillful attorneys will help you file a claim with the company, which is bound to result in the maximum compensation you qualify for. Workers came in contact with asbestos on the job by having to grind the toxic mineral off various machinery and equipment components, which inevitably resulted in asbestos fibers being released in the air, from where they would inhale and ingest the carcinogenic mineral. Asbestos was also used by the company to insulate various machinery and equipment to prevent overheating, as the mineral has great fire resistance.

After you thoroughly explain your situation and send your attorney your employment and medical records, which will be used as evidence to support your claim, they will promptly begin working on your case.

Lastly, you should know that our law firm works on a contingency fee basis, which means that you do not owe our lawyers anything unless they recover compensation for you.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Lufkin Iron Foundry workers

By living under the same roof as a worker of Lufkin Iron Foundry, secondary exposure would inevitably occur, as their wives would have to launder their work clothes, while their children were exposed to asbestos when greeting their fathers upon returning home from the job. Secondary asbestos exposure is as dangerous as occupational asbestos exposure and can thereby lead to the same awful disease within 20 to 50 years. If you developed a serious disease as a result of secondary asbestos exposure, you are also entitled to compensation, which a lawyer who specializes in toxic exposure cases will help you recover. Since 1990, our attorneys and their legal team have been pursuing compensation for the victims of asbestos exposure and their family members and will gladly provide you with quality assistance. 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. Our resourceful attorneys will file a claim for you with Lufkin Iron Foundry, which will result in the maximum compensation you are eligible for. Therefore, if you are a victim of secondary asbestos exposure, we strongly encourage you to take legal action immediately.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

Oftentimes, people injured by occupational asbestos exposure fail to take legal action during their lifetime. Nevertheless, their surviving family members can recover financial compensation on their behalf by filing a wrongful death claim with the responsible company with the help of a lawyer who specializes in toxic exposure cases. With over 25 years of experience in helping the family members of asbestos exposure victims, our attorneys will provide you with the legal assistance you need to obtain fair compensation on behalf of your deceased loved one. You will only have to send your attorney the employment and medical records of your lost family members, as well as their death certificate, which must state that their death was caused by a disease stemming from occupational asbestos exposure. Eventually, you will recover the compensation you deserve if you choose to work with our attorneys. However, it is important to know 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.
