Timmers Chevrolet

Workers exposed to asbestos

The company, whose primary line of business was the sale of new and used automobiles, was founded in 1973. It was located in Pasadena, Texas. Because their employees would often have to maintain and repair automotive products such as brakes and clutches, which were manufactured with asbestos at the time, they were heavily exposed to the toxic mineral. Once automotive components that contain asbestos were disturbed, millions of fibers were released in the air, which made exposure unavoidable for workers. Timmers Chevrolet had approximately 100 employees during the last century. If you developed a disease after working for Timmers Chevrolet as a consequence of occupational asbestos exposure, you are entitled to financial compensation from the responsible company, which our resourceful attorneys will help you recover.

Asbestos Screening

Timmers Chevrolet employees exposed to asbestos

The main culprits behind the asbestos exposure that occurred at Timmers Chevrolet were the automotive products that contained asbestos, such as brakes and clutches. When employees would disturb these products, asbestos fibers were released in the air and subsequently inhaled and ingested by workers. To make matters worse, the ventilation in the facility was very poor, which only perpetuated asbestos exposure. If you are a former worker of Timmers Chevrolet and came to struggle with a serious disease as a result of occupational asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm for a free of charge case review, as you are most likely eligible for compensation. With over 25 years of experience in helping asbestos victims recover the compensation they deserved from the liable companies, our attorneys will provide you with quality legal assistance.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Timmers Chevrolet workers


Occurring when a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure was very prevalent among the family members of Timmers Chevrolet workers during the last century. Since they were not required to wear any protective equipment when working with asbestos products, employees would often return home with toxic dust on their clothes. Thereby, their wives would be exposed to asbestos when washing up their work clothes, whereas their children would breathe in and swallow dangerous fibers when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. Contrary to popular belief, secondary asbestos exposure can be as harmful as occupational asbestos exposure, since no amount of asbestos is safe for the human body. There are numerous family members of former asbestos workers who developed awful diseases after sharing the same living space with them. In the regrettable event that you received a diagnosis you believe is the consequence of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact us, as we specialize in toxic exposure cases. Our attorneys will carefully review your case and let you know whether you are eligible for filing a claim to receive the compensation you are entitled to. If you are, they will promptly begin working on your claim, which will eventually result in the maximum compensation available for your disease.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

It is not uncommon for victims of workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to take legal action during their lifetime, usually out of fear of a long and complicated process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure, our attorneys, who have been helping the surviving family members of asbestos exposure victims since 1990, will provide you with the legal assistance you need to file a wrongful death claim with Timmers Chevrolet so that you can recover compensation on behalf of your deceased loved one. While complex and tedious, the legal process will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to send your attorney the employment records of your lost family member, their medical records and their death certificate, which must state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. Eventually, you will receive fair compensation on behalf of your family member. It is important, however, to know that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years from the moment of death in most states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.
