Texas Foundries

Workers exposed to asbestos

As a mining and metal company, Texas Foundries exposed their workers to tremendous amounts of asbestos during the last century, which is why today, former employees are at high risk of developing a serious disease. Asbestos would be used in the facilities of the company to insulate various machinery and equipment, as it has extraordinary fire resistance. Oftentimes, however, employees would have to grind off asbestos from various components, which would inevitably result in asbestos fibers being released in the air, from where workers and everyone in close proximity would inhale and ingest the carcinogenic mineral. Nowadays, former Texas Foundries workers injured by occupational asbestos exposure are eligible for compensation from the liable company, which they can recover with the help of a lawyer who specializes in toxic exposure cases.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Texas Foundries workers

If you shared a house with a family member who was working for Texas Foundries, chances are you were secondarily exposed to asbestos. Women and children are the main categories that experienced secondary asbestos exposure, which is as dangerous as direct asbestos exposure. The wives of Texas Foundries employees would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers while laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would be exposed to the hazardous mineral when greeting their fathers upon returning home from the job. This is how secondary asbestos exposure occurred in the families of Texas Foundries workers. In the absence of adequate protective equipment, workers would regularly bring home asbestos fibers on their clothes, as well as on their skin and hair. Nevertheless, if you developed a serious disease and suspect it is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm and we will promptly review your case to determine whether you qualify for filing a claim. If you do, our attorneys, who specialize in toxic exposure cases, will promptly begin working on your claim. The only documents you will have to send your lawyer are the employment records of your family member and your medical records, which will accompany your claim as evidence. In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to if you choose to work with our attorneys.

Nevertheless, you should keep in mind that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years in most states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.
