Sanyo Automotive Parts Ltd

Workers exposed to asbestos

Located in Long Island City, New York, the company is a manufacturer of automotive components which, during the last century, were produced with asbestos, as the mineral has great insulating and fireproofing properties. While today, Sanyo Automotive Parts Ltd no longer uses asbestos, former employees have recently come to struggle with terrible diseases as a result of occupational asbestos exposure, as these diseases take between 20 and 50 years to develop. If you developed a serious disease as a consequence of workplace asbestos exposure which occurred while you were employed at Sanyo Automotive Parts Ltd, our attorneys, who specialize in toxic exposure cases, will help you recover fair compensation for your injury.

Sanyo Automotive Parts Ltd employees exposed to asbestos

Numerous companies manufactured automotive components with asbestos before 1980, when the use of the dangerous mineral was finally regulated in the workplace. As a result, many former employees came to suffer from awful diseases as a result of occupational asbestos exposure over recent years. If you developed a disease after working for Sanyo Automotive Parts Ltd, we strongly encourage you to take legal action, which will not only help you recover the compensation you deserve, but will also hold the liable company accountable for their negligent actions. With over 25 years of experience in pursuing toxic exposure cases, our attorneys will provide you with quality legal assistance and representation and the legal process, while very complex, will require minimal involvement on your part. The only documents you will have to send your attorney are your employment and medical records, as solid evidence must accompany your claim. Because the company is still in business at the moment, a personal injury claim will be filed against it. Eventually, it will result in the maximum compensation available for you if you decide to work with our skillful legal team. 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 most states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Sanyo Automotive Parts Ltd workers


During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure was a very frequent occurrence among the family members of asbestos workers, as employees who had to handle the dangerous mineral on the job were not provided with adequate protective equipment. Thereby, they would inevitably bring home asbestos dust on their clothes, skin and hair. By laundering their work clothes, their wives would be exposed to asbestos, whereas their children would inhale and ingest toxic fibers when greeting their fathers upon coming back home from the job. If you lived under the same roof as a Sanyo Automotive Parts Ltd worker and subsequently developed a disease you believe is the consequence of secondary asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm at your earliest convenience, as you may be eligible for compensation from the liable company. Our attorneys, who specialize in toxic exposure cases, will carefully assess your situation to determine whether you qualify for compensation. If you do, they will promptly begin working on your claim, for which you will only have to bring the employment records of your family member and your medical records, documents that will be used as proof to support your claim. Furthermore, because pertinent evidence must accompany your claim, our resourceful legal experts will conduct research of their own to discover additional proof for your case. In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your injury from the responsible company.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

It is not uncommon for victims of workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to seek the compensation they deserve, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure, we will help you file a wrongful death claim with Sanyo Automotive Parts Ltd, which will result in financial compensation. While the legal process is complex and tedious, it will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to provide your attorney with the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as with their death certificate, which must state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. The rest of the paperwork will be efficiently taken care of by our skillful legal team. You will eventually receive fair compensation as a surviving family member of a former asbestos worker. It is important to know, however, that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years from the moment of death in most states, which should prompt you to take legal action immediately.
