Swan Asbestos and Silica

Workers exposed to asbestos

Swan Asbestos and Silica was a parent company to Tyler Pipe, a pipe and foundry manufacturer operating out of Tyler, Texas. Its products made heavy use of the harmful mineral asbestos, despite research showing dramatic health effects on humans. When thousands of litigations threatened its business, Swan created an asbestos trust fund in 2001 and has been struggling to pay litigation damages since.

While asbestos and silica are naturally occurring minerals, they are highly carcinogenic to humans. Despite having knowledge of this danger ever since the early 1930s, plenty of U.S. companies decided to turn a blind eye to the potentially deadly effects asbestos and silica exposure could have had on their workers.

The occupations at the highest risk of developing a serious disease as a result of the asbestos exposure which occurred through Swan Asbestos and Silica are:

Unsurprisingly, numerous employees lost their lives to diseases such as lung cancer, asbestosis, mesothelioma, and silicosis several decades after working at Swan Asbestos and Silica, as these minerals gradually produce damage to internal organs. To make matters worse, breathing in both asbestos and silica increases the risk of illness tremendously.

Have you inhabited the same house as a Swan Asbestos and Silica worker?


The risk of developing a serious disease as a result of asbestos or silica exposure goes well beyond occupational settings. Although most people who are now suffering from debilitating illnesses came in contact with a carcinogen in the workplace, there are some whose job has never involved handling asbestos or silica. These are mostly individuals who shared a living space with someone who would work with one of these minerals on a regular basis – usually, a family member. Because asbestos and silica workers, including those at Swan Asbestos and Silica, were not required by their employer to change before leaving the facility, they would unwittingly bring toxic fibers home, which would slowly become contaminated. Inevitably, whoever was living with a Swan Asbestos and Silica worker would inhale and ingest carcinogenic fibers. This route of exposure is known as secondary exposure.

If you are a victim of secondary asbestos or silica exposure, we urge you to take legal action. Swan Asbestos and Silica have a trust fund that provides anyone injured by their products with financial compensation and our resourceful lawyers will gladly assist you with recovering the money you deserve. The process is incomparably easier to navigate than standard litigation and requires minimal involvement on your part. Our specialized attorneys and their experienced legal team will take care of everything while you can continue focusing on your health.
