Rauland Corporation

Workers exposed to asbestos

Located in Melrose Park, Illinois, the company was part of the construction industry. Since it operated during the last century, when asbestos was highly prevalent in building materials, Rauland Corporation also made use of the dangerous mineral, thereby endangering the health of their employees. Consequently, laborers were the occupational group with the heaviest asbestos exposure. Today, numerous former employees are struggling with terrible diseases as a result of working with asbestos for Rauland Corporation. However, it is important to know that, if you developed a disease as a consequence of occupational asbestos exposure, you are entitled to compensation from the negligent party. With over 25 years of experience in pursuing toxic exposure cases, our attorneys are here to help you recover the compensation you deserve for your physical and emotional suffering.

Asbestos Screening

Rauland Corporation employees exposed to asbestos

Since the company was part of the construction industry, employees were exposed to asbestos on a regular basis, as they had to prepare and install numerous hazardous products that would release toxic fibers in the air. In the absence of adequate protective equipment, they would inevitably breathe in and swallow asbestos fibers from the air. If you came to struggle with a disease such as lung cancer as a result of working for Rauland Corporation, please contact our law firm, as we specialize in toxic exposure cases, and our attorneys will carefully review your case. After you provide your lawyer with your employment and medical records, documents that will stand as evidence to support your claim, they will promptly begin working on your case. Because the company does not have a trust fund, we will file a claim with it. Although the legal process is very complex, it will require minimal involvement on your part, as the rest of the paperwork will be efficiently taken care of by our resourceful legal team. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your injury, which will also help you afford superior healthcare and treatment. It is worthy of note that asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 3 years from the moment of diagnosis in the majority of states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Rauland Corporation workers


During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure was a common occurrence among the family members of people who handled the carcinogenic mineral on the job. The family members of Rauland Corporation workers were no exception. Because employees were not required to wear any protective equipment when performing their work, they would often return home covered in asbestos dust. This way, their wives would inhale and ingest toxic fibers when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would be exposed to asbestos when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. It is important to note that secondary asbestos exposure can be as dangerous as occupational asbestos exposure, as no amount of asbestos is safe for the human body. If you struggle with a disease you believe is the result of living under the same roof as a worker who handled asbestos on the job, do not hesitate to contact our law firm and we will carefully assess your situation. In the fortunate event that you are eligible for compensation, our skillful attorneys will promptly begin working on your case, which will be filed against Rauland Corporation. In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to from the liable company if you choose to work with our legal team.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

It is not uncommon for people whose health was affected by occupational asbestos exposure to refuse to seek compensation for their disease while they are alive, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by asbestos exposure, our attorneys can help you file a wrongful death claim with Rauland Corporation to recover financial compensation on their behalf, as the surviving family members of asbestos victims are also eligible for compensation. The only documents we will need from you are the employment records of your deceased loved one, their medical records, as well as their death certificate, which must clearly state that they passed away due to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. After you provide your attorney with these documents, the rest of the paperwork will be efficiently taken care of by our legal team. You will eventually receive the compensation you are entitled to on behalf of your lost family member if you choose to work with our law firm. 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 most states, which should prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.
