Peter Kiewit Sons Company

Workers exposed to asbestos

Founded in 1884, the company operates under the name of Kiewit Corporation at the moment and is located in Omaha, Nebraska. It is a construction company that made use of asbestos products during the last century, thereby exposing workers to the dangerous mineral, as they would have to prepare and install building materials containing asbestos. If you worked for Peter Kiewit Sons Company before 1980, when proper regulations concerning the use of asbestos in occupational settings finally came into effect, you were inevitably exposed to the toxic mineral. In the unfortunate event that you came to struggle with a disease caused by asbestos exposure, our attorneys are here to help you recover the financial compensation you are eligible for.

Peter Kiewit Sons Company employees exposed to asbestos

Between 1920 and 1980, the company made use of construction products containing asbestos, which greatly endangered the health of their employees. When workers would move and install these building materials, toxic fibers would be released in the air, from where they could easily inhale and ingest asbestos. Because employees were not required to wear protective equipment on the job, exposure was bound to occur. Today, former Peter Kiewit Sons Company workers who developed a serious disease as a consequence of occupational asbestos exposure are eligible for compensation, which a lawyer who specializes in toxic exposure cases can help them recover from the liable company. The only necessary documents are your employment and medical records, which will be used as evidence to support your claim. Furthermore, because solid proof must accompany your claim, our legal experts will conduct research of their own to discover additional evidence for your case. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to from Peter Kiewit Sons Company, which will also help you afford better healthcare and treatment. 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 Peter Kiewit Sons Company workers

During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure was a frequent occurrence among the family members of Peter Kiewit Sons Company workers, as they would regularly bring home toxic dust on their clothes, as well as on their skin and hair, since they were not provided with adequate protective equipment on the job. While their wives would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers when laundering their work clothes, their children were exposed to the carcinogenic mineral when greeting their fathers upon returning home from the job.
