If You Held Down a Job at Skinner Engine Company, You Are Now at High Risk for Lung Disease
Specializing in the manufacturing of steam engines and ship components, Skinner Engine Company was another business which did not refrain from using asbestos during the last century. Asbestos exposure, whether it occurs in occupational or non-industrial settings, is known to cause harrowing diseases, from pulmonary fibrosis and COPD to lung cancer and mesothelioma. While lung disease is the most widespread among asbestos victims, other cancers, such as those affecting the colon, the esophagus, and the kidneys, are not uncommon either. In addition to the individuals who participated in the manufacturing of Skinner Engine Company products, anyone who came in contact with their steam engines and ship components is also at considerable risk for illness.
Over recent decades, numerous claims have been filed against the company, which has a trust fund injured people can receive compensation from. However, because the process is usually complex, we strongly recommend you to hire a lawyer who specializes in asbestos exposure cases. As they possess the necessary knowledge and resources, they will be able to efficiently help you pursue the money you are entitled to. Furthermore, your attorney and their legal team will attend to the majority of intricate tasks filing a claim entails so that you will be able to continue focusing on your health and treatment. If your employment at Skinner Engine Company caused you a terrible disease, we encourage you to contact us at your earliest convenience, as asbestos cases have a statute of limitations which could prevent you from claiming the compensation you deserve if it expires. For more information, give us a call and we will promptly address any concerns you might have.
