T. H. Agriculture employees exposed to asbestos

During the last century, T. H. Agriculture made use of asbestos in large amounts, as the mineral has numerous convenient properties, such as excellent resistance to fire, electricity and a wide range of chemicals. Furthermore, it was also very cheap at the time. T. H. Agriculture and Nutrition was a distributor of raw chrysotile asbestos, as well as asbestos laundry products and vermiculite insulation, which is known to contain a high concentration of asbestos. It was in business from 1960 to 1980. The occupations at the highest risk of developing a serious disease as a result of exposure to the asbestos products of this company are:

The risk of exposure was everywhere for T. H. Agriculture and Nutrition workers and the occupational groups which are now the most susceptible to developing serious diseases as a result of past asbestos exposure include truck drivers, miners, and warehouse laborers. Over recent decades, more than 11,000 people injured by occupational asbestos exposure have filed a lawsuit against the company, which is why T. H. Agriculture and Nutrition was forced to seek Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 2008.

While the dangers of asbestos exposure had been suggested by medical studies ever since the end of the 20th century, the companies which came to employ this naturally occurring mineral after 1900 chose to keep the awful health consequences of asbestos inhalation and ingestion a secret from both their workers and the general population. Despite the increasing number of researchers who were discovering more and more accurate information concerning the diseases asbestos exposure could cause, the higher-ups went to incredible lengths to minimize or hide the results of such studies. Accordingly, not only the health of millions of employees had been endangered for nearly five decades, but also the health of their loved ones, whom they would return to after work covered with asbestos fibers.

Also known as domestic exposure, secondary exposure pertains to a person breathing in or swallowing asbestos fibers without being in close proximity to the source of pollution, namely industrial settings. It is estimated that 10% of the people who currently struggle with diseases such as asbestosis and mesothelioma fell ill due to secondary asbestos exposure. Similarly to workers injured by asbestos, victims of secondary exposure can recover compensation from the trust fund of T. H. Agriculture and Nutrition with the help of a specialized lawyer. Regardless of the severity of your diagnosis, we encourage you to take action as soon as possible, as asbestos cases – being personal injury cases per se – have a statute of limitations which, if expires, will prevent you from claiming the money you deserve.
