Tyler Pipe Foundry

Workers exposed to asbestos

Based in Tyler, Texas, the company has multiple facilities throughout the country, in Birmingham, Alabama, and in Macungie, Pennsylvania. It is a manufacturer of pipes but, during the last century, it employed asbestos, as the mineral has great insulating and fire resistance properties. As a result, workers who held down a job at Tyler Pipe Foundry before 1980, when asbestos use was finally regulated, are now at high risk of developing a serious disease. However, it is important to know that if you were injured by occupational asbestos exposure in the workplace, you are eligible for compensation, which a lawyer who specializes in toxic exposure cases will help you recover.
