Marcal Paper

Workers exposed to asbestos

Located in New Jersey, the company has been in business for 80 years. Although they had to take a break of one year from manufacturing paper because a fire destroyed their facility in 2018, Marcal Paper is still operating today. However, during the last century, paper mills were notorious for exposing their workers to asbestos, which is why nowadays, numerous former employees struggle with a serious disease as a result of exposure.

If you came to struggle with a disease as a result of occupational asbestos exposure which occurred at Marcal Paper, you are eligible for compensation, which our attorneys, who specialize in pursuing toxic exposure cases, will help you recover.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Marcal Paper workers

Occurring when a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure was very frequent among the family members of Marcal Paper during the last century, as employees were not provided with the protective equipment they needed when handling asbestos products, which would result in them returning home with toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair.
