Westpoint Stevens Inc.

Workers exposed to asbestos

Founded in 1813, the company was a manufacturer, distributor and marketer of bed and bath home fashions products. At the moment, it has 34 manufacturing facilities, 16 distribution centers and 52 outlets. The company is located in West Point, Georgia. While they did not manufacture asbestos products, workers would inhale and ingest the dangerous mineral while working in their facilities, as the equipment was insulated with asbestos and the buildings were made with asbestos construction products. In the unfortunate event that you came to struggle with a disease as a result of working at Westpoint Stevens Inc. we strongly encourage you to reach out to our law firm, as we specialize in toxic exposure cases and will help you recover the compensation you deserve from your former employer.

Asbestos Screening

Westpoint Stevens Inc. employees exposed to asbestos

Laborers were the occupational group with the heaviest asbestos exposure at Westpoint Stevens Inc. Nonetheless, everyone who was present in their facilities was exposed to asbestos to a certain extent, as they would be surrounded by machinery and equipment insulated with asbestos, as well as by asbestos building materials. If you developed a disease as a result of workplace asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm, as we have been pursuing compensation for asbestos victims for over 25 years. After a thorough discussion with our legal team, during which you will be asked to describe the circumstances of your exposure, our attorneys will promptly begin preparing your claim for submission. The only documents we will need from you are your employment and medical records, which will be used as evidence to support your claim, while the rest of the necessary paperwork will be efficiently handled by our skillful legal team. Eventually, you will receive fair compensation for your physical and emotional distress if you choose to work with our experienced law firm. However, it is important to keep in mind that asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 3 years from the moment of diagnosis in most states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Westpoint Stevens Inc. workers

If you lived under the same roof as a family member who was working at Westpoint Stevens Inc. at the time, you were most likely exposed to asbestos as well, since employees were not provided with protective equipment when handling asbestos and were also not required to change their clothes at the end of their shift. Therefore, they would often return home with toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair, exposing family members. Their wives would mostly inhale and ingest asbestos fibers when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would come in contact with the dangerous mineral when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. In the regrettable event that you suffer from a disease you believe is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact us for a free of charge case review. After you thoroughly describe the circumstances of your asbestos exposure to our legal team, they will be able to tell you with certainty whether you are eligible for filing a claim. If you are, the only documents you will have to send your attorney are the employment records of your family member and your medical records, which will stand as proof to support your claim. You will eventually receive the maximum compensation available for your injury from the responsible company, which will also help you afford better healthcare and treatment.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

It is not uncommon for victims of workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to seek the compensation they deserve while they are still alive, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure, we will help you file a wrongful death claim, a process that will require minimal involvement on your part. Thereby, the only documents we will need from you are the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must clearly state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. The remaining necessary paperwork will be carefully taken care of by our resourceful legal team. In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation you qualify for from the former employer of your lost family member. It is important to know, however, that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years from the moment of death in the majority of states, which should prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.
