U.S. Pipe and Foundry

Workers exposed to asbestos

Today, U.S. Pipe and Foundry is one of the leading manufacturers of ductile iron pipe, which is used to carry water and wastewater. Some of the products they manufacture include pipe fittings, joints, valves and hydrants. Nonetheless, before 1980, the company would make use of tremendous amounts of asbestos, mostly for the insulation of pipes, as asbestos has excellent fireproofing properties. Thereby, numerous former workers are now struggling with terrible diseases such as lung cancer and mesothelioma as a result of occupational asbestos exposure. If you came to develop a disease after working at U.S. Pipe and Foundry, do not hesitate to contact our law firm, as we specialize in toxic exposure cases and will help you recover the financial compensation you deserve from the liable company.

People who developed a disease as a consequence of workplace asbestos exposure, which occurred between 1920 and 1980, are now eligible for compensation.

It is worthy of note that diseases that are caused by asbestos exposure take 20 to 50 years to occur.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of U.S. Pipe and Foundry workers


Because they were not given any protective equipment when working with asbestos, employees of U.S. Pipe and Foundry would often return home with toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair during the last century. Secondary asbestos exposure would occur in their wives, particularly when they would launder their work clothes, as well as in their children, usually when they would greet their fathers upon coming back home from the job. Contrary to popular belief, secondary asbestos exposure can be just as dangerous as direct asbestos exposure, since no amount of asbestos is safe for the human body. Thereby, the family members of asbestos workers would unavoidably be exposed to asbestos. In the regrettable case that you shared a living space with a family member who was working at U.S. Pipe and Foundry and came to suffer from a disease that could have been caused by secondary asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm immediately, as we specialize in toxic exposure cases. Although the legal process is very complex, it will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to send your attorney the employment records of your family member and your medical records, documents that will be used as evidence in your claim with U.S. Pipe and Foundry. Eventually, our attorneys will obtain the maximum compensation available for you from the liable company, which will also help you afford better healthcare and treatment for your disease.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

Oftentimes, victims of workplace asbestos exposure are reluctant to take legal action while they are still alive, usually out of fear of a long and complicated process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by asbestos exposure who had not filed a claim during their lifetime, we will help you file a wrongful death claim on their behalf so that you can recover the compensation you are entitled to from the liable company. Your involvement in the legal process will be minimal, as you will only have to provide your lawyer with the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as with their death certificate, which must state that they lost their life to a disease caused by asbestos exposure. Afterward, the remaining legal aspects will be efficiently taken care of by our skillful legal team. You will eventually recover fair compensation on behalf of your family member from U.S. Pipe and Foundry. It is important, however, to keep in mind 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.
