Viking Pump Inc.

Workers Exposed to Asbestos

Viking Pump Inc. is a manufacturer of displacement pumps and flow-control systems for fluid-handling applications. It was established in 1911, in Cedar Falls, Iowa. During WW2, the company won government contracts and started to grow their production, manufacturing pumps that were used in a variety of military applications, including tanks and ships. As it was common up until 1980, they have used asbestos in their products, exposing employees to huge health risks.

Employees Exposed to Asbestos While Working at Viking Pump Inc. Need to Keep an Eye on Their Health

Up until the 1980s, many manufacturers chose to use asbestos in their products because it added durability; it was heat resistant and fireproof. The manufacturing process exposed their workers to serious diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis. But it wasn’t just that. A lot of the equipment had asbestos insulation as well, thus exposing even workers who did maintenance. Viking Pump is one of the companies that have used asbestos in manufacturing their products, putting their workers at risk.

If you are a former Viking Pump employee, you need to pay close attention to your health.

Former Viking Pump Inc. Employees Diagnosed with Asbestos-Related Diseases Are Entitled to Receive Compensation

Employees working in various departments of Viking Pump were highly exposed. Disturbing asbestos would cause fibers to be released into the air exposing not only those working directly with it but any individual in that area. Over the last years, the number of individuals getting affected by asbestos exposure has grown, putting companies like Viking Pump on the stand for choosing to incorporate asbestos in their products despite being a known carcinogen, and failing to warn their employees of the health risks associated with it.

If you were employed at Viking Pump during their asbestos period, and have been diagnosed with a related disease, you are entitled to receive compensation. Our team specializes in cases of asbestos exposure and has helped thousands of victims file claims and receive compensation.
