McDonnell Douglas Manufacturing

Workers exposed to asbestos

Founded in 1967, the company was a major aerospace manufacturer, as well as a defense contractor. It is located in Berkeley, Missouri. Because asbestos was necessary for the production of various components, the employees of McDonnell Douglas Manufacturing were heavily exposed to the toxic mineral. If you were injured by asbestos exposure while working at this company, please contact our attorneys, as they have been pursuing compensation for the victims of toxic exposure for over 25 years. They will help you file a claim with McDonnell Douglas Manufacturing to recover the compensation you deserve.

McDonnell Douglas Manufacturing employees exposed to asbestos

Assemblers were the occupational group at McDonnell Douglas Manufacturing whose health was the most affected by workplace asbestos exposure, as they had to insulate various aircraft components, such as brakes and clutches, with asbestos. Nonetheless, everyone who worked for this company was exposed to asbestos to a certain extent. In the unfortunate case that you came to struggle with a disease as a consequence of workplace asbestos exposure, we strongly encourage you to contact our law firm, as we specialize in toxic exposure cases. After the initial discussion with our skillful legal team, during which you will have to describe the circumstances of your exposure, our attorneys will begin preparing your claim for submission. The only documents we need from you are your employment and medical records, which will be used as evidence to support your claim. Eventually, you will recover the maximum compensation you are entitled to from your former employer if you choose to work with our law firm. 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 make taking legal action a priority for you.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of McDonnell Douglas Manufacturing workers


If you shared a living space with a family member who was employed at McDonnell Douglas Manufacturing before 1980, you were most likely exposed to asbestos as well. Since they were not required to wear protective equipment when handling asbestos components, workers would often bring home toxic fibers on their clothes, skin and hair, which inevitably led to secondary asbestos exposure among their family members. While their wives would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers when laundering their work clothes, their children would be exposed to the dangerous mineral when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. In the regrettable event that you developed a disease you believe is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm and we will thoroughly review your case. If you are eligible for compensation, our resourceful attorneys will file a claim with McDonnell Douglass Manufacturing to recover the compensation you deserve for your physical and emotional suffering. You will only have to send your attorney the employment records of your family member and your medical records, documents that will stand as evidence to support your claim. The rest of the paperwork will be efficiently taken care of by our legal team, so your involvement in the process will be minimal. You will eventually recover fair compensation for your diagnosis from the company at fault.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

It is not uncommon for people injured by workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to seek the compensation they deserve while they are still alive, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm and we will help you file a wrongful death claim with the responsible company. While complex and tedious, the legal process will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to provide your attorney with the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as with their death certificate, which must clearly state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. You will eventually recover the maximum compensation available on their behalf if you decide to work with our legal team. It is important to keep in mind, 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 as soon as possible.
