Shambaugh & Son Inc.

Workers exposed to asbestos

As a construction company, Shambaugh & Son Inc. was founded in 1930 and is located in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Since employees would regularly handle building materials manufactured with asbestos, exposure was inevitable, as they were not provided with any protective equipment in this respect. Therefore, everyone who held down a job at this company before 1980, when asbestos use was finally regulated in the workplace, was heavily exposed to asbestos. If you came to struggle with a disease as a consequence of occupational asbestos exposure, we strongly encourage you to contact our law firm, as our main area of practice is toxic exposure and our attorneys have over 25 years of professional experience. They will promptly help you recover the compensation you are entitled to from the liable company by filing a claim.

Shambaugh & Son Inc. employees exposed to asbestos

Construction workers were the occupational group with the heaviest asbestos exposure at this company, as they would have to install building materials that contained the toxic mineral. By disturbing these construction products, millions of asbestos fibers would be released in the air, which made exposure unavoidable. Employees would have to cut, sand, drill and saw building materials manufactured with asbestos and, in the absence of adequate protective equipment, they would subsequently inhale and ingest asbestos fibers. It is estimated that construction workers are 5 times more likely to develop mesothelioma as a result of asbestos exposure than the general population. In the regrettable event that you developed a disease as a consequence of workplace asbestos exposure, please reach out to our law firm and our skillful attorneys will help you recover the financial compensation you deserve for your physical and emotional distress. The only documents we will need from you are your employment and medical records, which will be used as proof to support your claim. Eventually, you will recover the maximum compensation you are eligible for from your former employer, which will also help you afford better healthcare and treatment. However, it is important to know 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 Shambaugh & Son Inc. workers


If you shared a living space with a family member who was working at Shambaugh & Son Inc. at the time, chances are you were also exposed to asbestos. Because they would not be required to wear any protective equipment on the job or to change their work clothes at the end of their shift, employees would inevitably bring home asbestos fibers on their clothes, skin and hair. While their wives would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers when laundering their work clothes, their children would come in contact with the dangerous mineral when greeting their father upon returning home from the job. If you struggle with a disease you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm and we will help you recover the compensation you are entitled to. While complex and tedious, the legal process will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to provide your attorney with the employment records of your family member who handled asbestos on the job and with your medical records, documents that will stand as evidence to support your claim. In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your diagnosis if you decide to work with our skillful legal team.

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 while they are alive, 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 recover fair compensation on their behalf. Although the legal process is very complex, your involvement will be minimal, as you will only have to send your attorney the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must clearly state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. These documents will be used as proof to support your wrongful death claim and the rest of the paperwork will be efficiently taken care of by our resourceful legal team. You will eventually receive the maximum compensation you qualify for on behalf of your lost family member if you choose to work with our law firm. It is important to keep in mind, however, 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 prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.
