R&B Falcon Drilling

Workers exposed to asbestos

Also known as TransOcean Drilling Company and Todco Management Services, R&B Falcon Drilling exposed their workers to asbestos during the last century, particularly floormen, derrickmen, supervisors, and drillers. The company was founded in 1955 and was located in Houston, Texas. Nowadays, former employees are at high risk of developing a disease as a consequence of workplace asbestos exposure. However, if you received a diagnosis that is related to occupational asbestos exposure, our law firm will help you recover the compensation you deserve from the liable company by filing a personal injury claim with it.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of R&B Falcon Drilling workers

Chances are if you lived under the same roof as a family member who worked at R&B Falcon Drilling, you were also exposed to asbestos, although to a lesser extent. Secondary asbestos exposure was a frequent occurrence during the last century, as the wives of asbestos employees would have to launder their work clothes, while their children would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers when greeting their fathers upon returning home from work. Because they were not provided with the protective equipment they needed on the job, employees of R&B Falcon Drilling would come home covered in asbestos dust. If you developed a disease which you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm, as we specialize in toxic exposure cases and will gladly offer you a free of charge case review. If you qualify for compensation, our skillful attorneys will begin working on your claim, which will be filed against R&B Falcon Drilling, as they are still in business at the moment.
