North American Rockwell Corporation

Workers exposed to asbestos

The company, today known as Rockwell International Corporation, was one of the leading aerospace contractors of the country, manufacturing vehicles and spacecraft for the U.S. space program. Between 1967 and 1973, it operated under the name of North American Rockwell Corporation and was located in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Their employees were heavily exposed to asbestos, as the manufacturing of numerous automotive components required the use of asbestos. For this reason, former workers of North American Rockwell Corporation need to pay close attention to their health, as they are at high risk of developing a serious disease. In the regrettable case that you already struggle with a disease as a consequence of workplace asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm to recover the compensation you are entitled to.

North American Rockwell Corporation employees exposed to asbestos

Mechanics are the occupational group employed by North American Rockwell Corporation with the greatest risk of developing a serious disease as a result of workplace asbestos exposure, as they would often have to install, maintain and repair automotive components manufactured with the toxic mineral such as brakes, clutches and gaskets. Nonetheless, everyone who held down a job at this company was exposed to asbestos to a certain extent. If you are a former North American Rockwell Corporation worker struggling with a disease as a result of asbestos exposure that occurred on the job, do not hesitate to contact our law firm, as our attorneys have been helping victims of toxic exposure for the last 25 years. After a thorough discussion with our legal team, during which you will need to explain the circumstances of your asbestos exposure, our attorneys will begin preparing your claim for submission, a process that requires minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to provide your lawyer with your employment and medical records. These documents will be used as evidence to support your claim, which will be filed with North American Rockwell Corporation. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation you are eligible for from the liable company if you decide to work with our law firm. However, it is important to know 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 North American Rockwell Corporation workers


Occurring when a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure was very frequent among the family members of people who were regularly handling the toxic mineral o the job. Since they were not provided with adequate protective equipment, as asbestos was not acknowledged as a health threat, workers would often bring home dangerous fibers on their clothes, skin and hair. Thereby, their wives would mostly be exposed to asbestos when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would breathe in and swallow toxic fibers when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. If you suffer from a disease you believe is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, we are here to help you recover the financial compensation you deserve. After you thoroughly explain your situation to our legal team, our attorneys will tell you with certainty whether you qualify for filing a claim to recover compensation. If you are eligible, they will promptly begin preparing your claim and the only documents you will need to send your attorney are the employment records of your family member and your medical records. In the end, if you choose to work with our skillful legal team, you will obtain the maximum compensation available for your diagnosis from the liable company.
