M.W. Kellogg Company

Workers exposed to asbestos

Also known as Pullman Standard, the company was a power plant construction facility and a producer of power plant components. It was founded in 1901 and was located in New York. However, the development of hammer forge welding techniques helped M.W. Kellogg Company to move into refining, as the petroleum industry was growing. The company was also a manufacturer of railroad cars, a process that involved heavy asbestos use. One of the clients who sought financial compensation for the disease he developed as a result of occupational asbestos exposure at M.W. Kellogg Company worked for it as a welder. Thereby, if you developed a disease as a consequence of workplace asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm immediately and we will promptly review your case.

Asbestos Screening

M.W. Kellogg Company employees exposed to asbestos

Because they had to use welding rods made with asbestos, welders who were employed at M.W. Kellogg are one of the occupational groups at the highest risk of developing a serious disease today, as diseases that are caused by asbestos exposure take between 20 and 50 years to occur. By using welding rods manufactured with asbestos, millions of toxic fibers would be released in the air and, in the absence of adequate protective equipment, employees would inhale and ingest asbestos on a regular basis while working at this company. In the unfortunate event that you came to struggle with a serious disease as a consequence of workplace asbestos exposure which occurred at M.W. Kellogg Company, our attorneys are here to help you recover the financial compensation you deserve for your injury. With over 25 years of experience in pursuing toxic exposure cases, they will thoroughly evaluate your case and subsequently file a personal injury claim with your former employer. The only documents you will have to provide for the legal process are your employment and medical records, which will stand as evidence in your claim. Furthermore, because solid proof must accompany your claim, our resourceful legal experts will also conduct research of their own to find additional evidence for your case, which will guarantee a favorable outcome. Eventually, you will receive fair compensation from the liable company if you decide 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 prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of M.W. Kellogg Company workers


Occurring when one inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure was very prevalent among the family members of asbestos workers during the last century. Because they were not provided with the protective equipment they needed, employees would often return home with asbestos dust on their clothes, skin and hair, which inevitably led to secondary asbestos exposure. While their wives would be exposed to asbestos when laundering their work clothes, their children would breathe in and swallow asbestos fibers when greeting their fathers upon coming back home from the job. This is how secondary asbestos exposure, which can be as dangerous as workplace asbestos exposure, would occur before 1980. In the unfortunate event that you developed a disease you believe is the consequence of secondary asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm immediately and we will promptly review your case. If you are eligible for compensation, our attorneys, who specialize in toxic exposure cases, will begin working on your claim, which will be filed with M.W. Kellogg Company. The only documents you will need to send your attorney are the employment records of your family member and your medical records, as solid evidence must accompany your claim. In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your injury from the liable company, which will be held accountable for their negligent actions.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

It is not uncommon for people who struggle with diseases as a result of workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to seek the compensation they deserve from the responsible company during their lifetime, 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 who had not taken legal action while they were alive, we will help you file a wrongful death claim so that you can recover fair compensation on their behalf. While complex and tedious, the legal process will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to provide your lawyer with the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as with their death certificate, which must state that they passed away due to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. It is important, however, to keep in mind 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. With the help of our skillful attorneys and their resourceful legal team, you are bound to obtain the most favorable outcome for your wrongful death asbestos exposure claim.
