Riley Stoker Corporation

Workers exposed to asbestos

The Riley Stoker Corporation has been established in 1980 and runs today under the name of Riley Power. They are a manufacturer of industrial boilers and other related parts and components. As boilers operate at very high temperatures, asbestos was an ideal material to incorporate in components, given its quality of withstanding high temperatures. By using it, they have put their workers as well as consumers at large at the risk of developing serious diseases.

Asbestos Screening

Former Riley Stoker employees may be at risk of developing serious diseases

During the last century, Riley Stoker made use of asbestos in large amounts, as the mineral has numerous convenient properties, such as excellent resistance to fire, electricity, and a wide range of chemicals. Furthermore, it was also very cheap at the time. As boilers and their components need to be able to withstand very high temperatures, asbestos was frequently used for its fireproofing and heat-resisting qualities. Besides that, it was a very cost-efficient option, which made it even more attractive to manufacturers. In the process of making these products or servicing them, asbestos fibers get released into the air, contaminating it and putting any workers inhaling it at the risk of developing serious diseases such as lung cancer or asbestosis. The occupations at the highest risk of developing a disease as a result of exposure to the asbestos products of this company are:

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


During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure was a frequent occurrence among the family members of asbestos workers. When a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, such as the work clothes of asbestos employees, secondary asbestos exposure occurs. Thereby, the wives of Riley Stoker Corporation employees would be exposed to asbestos while laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would breathe in and swallow asbestos fibers when greeting their fathers upon returning home from the job with toxic dust on his clothes. If you developed a disease you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm, as you may be entitled to compensation. We will thoroughly review your situation to tell you with certainty if you have a case. If you do, our attorneys will promptly begin working on your claim, which will also be filed with Riley Stoker Corporation. The only documents you will have to provide your lawyer with are the employment records of your family member who worked for the company and your medical records, documents which will be used as evidence to support your case. In the end, you will recover the maximum compensation you qualify for from the liable company, a process that will take between 3 months to one year to complete. With the legal assistance of our attorneys and their legal team, you are bound to recover fair compensation for your injury.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

Oftentimes, people who were severely injured by occupational asbestos exposure refuse to seek compensation from the responsible company, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. If, however, you have a family member who worked for Riley Stoker Corporation and lost their lives to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure, you can file a wrongful death claim to recover financial compensation on their behalf. Since 1990, our attorneys have been pursuing compensation for victims of asbestos exposure and their family members and will gladly help you as well. After a thorough initial discussion, you will have to send your attorney the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must state that their death was the result of a disease stemming from asbestos exposure, such as lung cancer or mesothelioma. Depending on factors such as the severity of their diagnosis, you will receive the compensation you deserve on their behalf within 3 months to one year. It is important to know that the legal process requires minimal involvement on your part, which will allow you to focus on more important aspects in the meantime. Lastly, you should know that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years from the moment of death in the majority of states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.
