Workers exposed to asbestos

Quigley was founded in 1916, its primary line of products being refractory materials that were mainly used in steel, iron, and glass industries. In 1968, the company was purchased by Pfizer, but by 1991, Pfizer’s mineral and metals division has become defunct. Between World War II and the 1970s, Quigley manufactured products containing asbestos. They were mostly insulation materials that were heavily used by boiler workers and the people working in the construction industry.

Claim Evaluation

Quigley/Pfizer employees exposed to asbestos

Specializing in manufacturing refractory materials, whose purpose is to withstand extreme temperatures, Quigley was another company that used asbestos during the last century. Because it has remarkable heat and fire resistance, asbestos was the raw material of choice for the majority of companies producing refractory materials before the 1970s. The occupations at the highest risk of developing a serious disease as a result of the asbestos exposure which occurred by either working at Quigley/Pfizer or working with their products are:

Considering the fact that asbestos-related diseases may take a long time to develop, it's extremely important that anyone who has a history of asbestos exposure regularly monitor their health. In the interest of promoting the importance of early diagnosis, we are offering screenings free of charge for Quigley/Pfizer employees.

Asbestos related cancer eligible for filing a claim

If you developed one of the following cancers as a result of occupational exposure, you are eligible for compensation. If you are too ill, a family member can help you with the legal process. In the unfortunate event that you pass away before recovering compensation, your surviving family members will receive compensation on your behalf.

Lung Cancer Mesothelioma Throat Cancer Esophageal Cancer Bronchial Cancer Gastrointestinal Cancer Colorectal Cancer

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 Quigley/Pfizer workers

Due to their microscopic size, asbestos fibers can easily spread through the environment. Thereby, it should not come as a surprise that numerous family members of former Quigley employees developed the same diseases direct asbestos exposure is notorious for, as workers did not have to change their clothes before leaving the facility at the end of the day. They would carry asbestos fibers on their clothes, as well as on their skin and in their hair, which would later wind up in their home. Usually, women would inhale toxic dust while shaking out the clothes before washing them, whereas children would breathe in asbestos fibers upon greeting their father. Today, up to 10% of the deaths asbestos causes are the result of secondary exposure.
