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.
Former Riley Stoker Employees May Be at Risk of Developing Serious Diseases
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 mesothelioma, lung cancer or asbestosis.
These diseases can take a long time to develop and start showing sings. If you have been exposed to asbestos during your time at Riley Stoker, you need to keep a close eye on your health. Frequent check-ups are highly recommended in order to catch any abnormalities early on. We are offering screenings free of charge.

Victims of Asbestos Exposure at Riley Stoker Can Receive Compensation
As early as 1920, studies have linked asbestos exposure to serious lung diseases. Despite that, manufacturers continued to use it, failing to warn their employees of the health risks. Riley Stoker has put not only their employees at health risk but also workers in other industries using their products on the job. Amongst the occupations with the highest risks of developing diseases, there are boilermakers, boiler mechanics, boiler operators, industrial workers, oil refinery workers, power plant workers, and technicians. Over the last years, there has been an increasing number of lawsuits against Riley Stoker because of the debilitating health of their employees after working with asbestos products.
