Masonite Corporation

Workers exposed to asbestos

Founded in 1924, the company is a manufacturer of interior and exterior doors, door components and door entry systems. It is located in Tampa, Florida and has over 9,000 employees worldwide. While Masonite Corporation no longer uses asbestos in their products, they would employ tremendous amounts of asbestos before 1980, when the dangerous mineral was finally regulated in the workplace. Thereby, millwrights were the occupational group working at Masonite Corporation with the heaviest asbestos exposure, as they had to build and maintain various products and equipment. Today, people who developed a serious disease as a result of working with asbestos at Masonite Corporation can recover the financial compensation they deserve with the help of a specialized attorney.

Masonite Corporation employees exposed to asbestos

While everyone who worked at Masonite Corporation during the last century was exposed to asbestos to a certain extent, the heaviest asbestos exposure occurred in millwrights, as they would have to maintain and repair the press plates, as well as change the press plates, which would release toxic dust in the air. To make matters worse, the facilities of Masonite Corporation were poorly ventilated back in the day, which only perpetuated asbestos exposure among workers. If you came to struggle with a disease as a consequence of occupational asbestos exposure, we strongly encourage you to take legal action by contacting our attorneys, who specialize in toxic exposure cases. After a thorough evaluation of your case, they will tell you with certainty if you qualify for compensation. If you do, they will promptly begin working on your claim, which will be filed against Masonite Corporation, since it is still in business at the moment.

While complex and tedious, the legal process only requires you to provide your attorney with your employment and medical records, as solid evidence must accompany your claim. Furthermore, to gather additional proof for your case, our resourceful legal experts will conduct research of their own. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your injury from the liable company. 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 most states, which should prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.

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

If you lived under the same roof as a worker of Masonite Corporation before 1980, you were inevitably exposed to asbestos, since employees were not given the adequate protective equipment to wear while handling asbestos. Consequently, they would often return home with toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair. While their wives would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers when washing up their work clothes, their children would come in contact with the dangerous mineral when greeting their fathers upon coming back home from the job. This is how secondary asbestos exposure would occur during the last century. In the regrettable event that you developed a disease you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm immediately and our attorneys will offer you a free of charge case review. If you are found eligible for compensation, they will file a claim with Masonite Corporation, which is bound to result in fair compensation for your injury. With over 25 years of experience in providing quality legal assistance for victims of asbestos exposure and their family members, our attorneys will recover the maximum compensation you qualify for from the responsible company. The only documents you will have to send your lawyer are the employment records of your family member and your medical records, which will stand as evidence in your claim. Finally, it is important to know that our law firm works on a contingency fee basis, which means that you do not owe our legal team any money unless they recover financial compensation for you.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

Oftentimes, people who struggle with a disease as a consequence of occupational asbestos exposure are reluctant to take legal action while they are alive, usually out of fear of a long and complicated process. Nevertheless, if one of your family members passed away due to a disease caused by workplace asbestos exposure, we will help you file a wrongful death claim with Masonite Corporation. Although the legal process is very complex, your involvement will be minimal, as you will only have to provide your attorney with the employment and medical records of your lost family member, as well as with their death certificate, which must state that they lost their life to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. To have pertinent evidence supporting your case, our skillful legal experts will also conduct research to discover additional proof for your wrongful death claim. If you choose to work with our law firm, you are bound to receive the maximum compensation available on behalf of your deceased loved one. You should 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 make taking legal action a priority for you.
