Raychem Corporation

Workers exposed to asbestos

Located in Redwood City, California, the company was a manufacturer of commercial products realized through radiation chemistry. It was founded in 1957, during the heyday of asbestos, and made use of the toxic mineral in large amounts, as it is resistant to a wide range of chemicals. If you worked for Raychem and subsequently developed a disease as a consequence of occupational asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm, as you may be eligible for compensation from your former employer. With over 25 years of experience in pursuing toxic exposure cases, our attorneys will help you file a claim with the company to recover the maximum compensation you are entitled to, which will also help you afford better healthcare and treatment.

Raychem Corporation employees exposed to asbestos

Asbestos was highly prevalent within the chemical industry during the last century, as it has extraordinary resistance to various chemicals and would thereby be used in certain processes. Everyone who was employed at Raychem Corporation was exposed to asbestos to a certain extent, including laborers, whose asbestos exposure was tremendous. If you came to struggle with a disease as a result of workplace asbestos exposure, we strongly encourage you to contact our law firm, as we specialize in pursuing toxic exposure cases. After the initial discussion with our attorneys and their legal team, you will only have to provide your employment and medical records, documents that will stand as evidence to support your claim. The claim will be filed with Raychem Corporation, even though it went out of business. Your involvement in the legal process will be minimal, as the rest of the paperwork will be efficiently taken care of by our law firm. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to from your former employer if you decide to work with our attorneys. 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 the majority of states, which should prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.

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


During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure was a very common occurrence among the family members of the people who were handling the dangerous mineral on the job, including Raychem Corporation workers. Because they were not given any protective equipment against asbestos, they would often return home from work with toxic dust on their clothes. This way, their wives would inhale and ingest asbestos when laundering their work clothes, while their children would be exposed to the toxic mineral when greeting their fathers upon coming back home from the job. In the regrettable case that you struggle with a disease you believe is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm and we will offer you a free of charge case review. If you are eligible for compensation, our resourceful attorneys will file a claim with Raychem Corporation for you, which will eventually result in financial compensation. The money you will receive will also help you afford better healthcare and treatment. By working with our skillful legal team, you are bound to receive the maximum compensation available for your diagnosis.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

Oftentimes, people who were injured by workplace asbestos exposure refuse to seek the compensation they deserve while they are still alive, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. While the legal process is very complex, it will require minimal involvement on your part if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure and would like to seek compensation on their behalf. The only documents we will ask for are the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must clearly state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. Afterward, the remaining paperwork will be carefully taken care of by our legal team. You will eventually receive the maximum compensation available on behalf of your lost family member if you decide to work with our law firm. It is important to keep in mind, however, that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years in most states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.
