If Synkoloid Company Was Your Employer Between 1949 and 1976, You Are Now at Risk for Developing Serious Diseases
While Synkoloid Company came into being in 1894, it was not until the middle of the last century that they began using asbestos in their products. Some of the most popular brand names of the patching materials the company manufactured were Plastibond, Tex-Wall, and Kool-Kap. As it has excellent fire resistance and durability, asbestos was the ideal enhancer to add in these building materials. Nonetheless, asbestos is a human carcinogen and exposure can lead to numerous life-threatening diseases, including lung cancer. Everyone who partook in the manufacturing of Synkoloid Company products is at high risk for developing a harrowing disease, as well as the other occupational groups who used the company’s patching materials, such as sheetrock installers, painters, drywall finishers, plasterers, and tapers.
Over recent decades, more than 60,000 people have filed a personal injury lawsuit against Synkoloid Company, which soon forced it to seek Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Thus, in 2007, the company set up a trust fund to provide compensation to workers whose health was affected by occupational asbestos exposure. If you were employed at Synkoloid Company while they were using asbestos, we advise you to undergo a periodical medical examination, as the chances of developing a disease never decrease. Unfortunately, because they are so insidious, the diseases which stem from asbestos exposure are very difficult to diagnose. They might take up to 50 years to ensue and, to make matters worse, their symptoms are similar to those of less severe types of pulmonary disease. For this reason, our specialists offer asbestos screenings free of charge to former Synkoloid Company employees. All you have to do is send us your most recent chest X-ray and we will promptly let you know whether the asbestos fibers you inhaled have caused any damage to your lungs.
