Reeves Brothers Inc.

Workers exposed to asbestos

Established in 1920, just when asbestos was starting to become more and more famous as a raw material, the company was manufacturing various textile products using the mineral. It was headquartered in Spartanburg, South Carolina. The company is currently known as Trelleborg. Over time, it has expanded the range of textile products it manufactures, now specializing in material engineering for a wide range of industries, such as defense and safety, aerospace, healthcare and medical, marine, and outdoor and recreation. Regrettably, Reeves Brothers would use a lot of asbestos in the making of textiles during the last century, which put the health of hundreds of workers at risk. If you were employed there and struggle with a disease such as lung cancer, we advise you to give us a call, as you may be eligible for compensation from your former employer.

Claim Evaluation

Reeves Brothers Inc. employees exposed to asbestos

The workers of textile mills experienced serious asbestos exposure during the last century because the process of manufacturing these products would generate asbestos dust in the air they would breathe. In addition to handling asbestos fibers, these employees were also surrounded by asbestos products that could easily release toxic dust in the facilities they would carry out their work in. Workers who had a job in the mills that were producing asbestos-free textiles were not directly exposed to asbestos because they did not handle it, but they still came in contact with asbestos products in the mill, such as gaskets, valves, packing material, and insulation.

These are the workers Reeves Brothers exposed to asbestos between the 1920s and the 1980s, whether directly or indirectly:

The process of turning asbestos into usable fabric entailed many different workers and locations throughout the mill. Workers moved asbestos from storage areas and mixed it with cotton. Subsequently, it was piled, meaning that cotton and asbestos were placed in alternating layers on the floor and then fed to the picker machine. This is just one of the numerous processes that generated a lot of asbestos dust in the air.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Reeves Brothers Inc. workers

If you shared a house with a Reeves Brothers worker, you were most likely exposed to asbestos as well, although indirectly. This is known as secondary asbestos exposure. When a person breathes in or swallows fibers of asbestos from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure occurs. Because textile mill workers were not instructed to change their clothes at the end of their shift, they would carry home asbestos dust, unknowingly exposing their spouses and children. Secondary asbestos exposure would happen when the wives of male textile workers laundered their garments and also when the children of these employees greeted them upon returning home.

Over the years, asbestos fibers would accumulate in the bodies of family members, placing them at greater and greater risk of developing a disease as a consequence of secondary asbestos exposure. No amount of asbestos in the body is safe, despite safety limits existing. If you came to struggle with a disease that is linked to asbestos exposure and lived in the same house as a textile mill worker during the last century, you should contact our legal team, as we can help you recover the compensation you deserve for your unjust suffering.
