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

If, however, you struggle with non-cancerous pleural diseases such as asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, pleural plaques, pleural effusion, diffuse pleural thickening, COPD (emphysema & chronic bronchitis), pleurisy, lung nodules, lung spots, asthma, pneumonitis, tuberculosis, rounded atelectasis or lung scarring, please seek a second or even a third opinion as the rate of misdiagnosis is very high among the victims of asbestos exposure.

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 on 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 us are the employment records of your family member and your medical records. In the end, if you choose to work with our skilled legal team, you will obtain the maximum compensation available for your diagnosis from the liable company.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

The only documents we will need from you are the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must clearly state that they passed away due to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure.

Within several months, you will recover the compensation you are entitled to on behalf of your lost family member from North American Rockwell Corporation.
