Yeargin Inc.

Workers exposed to asbestos

Located in Houston, Texas, the company was a manufacturer of oil and a supplier of energy. In 1993, the company was acquired by a subsidiary of Raytheon Co. The occupational groups with the heaviest asbestos exposure at Yeargin Inc. were insulators and pipefitters, as they would regularly have to install, maintain and repair asbestos products. By disturbing asbestos insulation, millions of toxic fibers would be released in the air, thereby perpetuating asbestos exposure, which occurs when one inhales or ingests asbestos fibers. If you developed a disease after working at Yeargin Inc. that you believe is the result of occupational asbestos exposure, we strongly encourage you to contact our law firm, as we specialize in toxic exposure cases and will help you obtain the compensation you deserve for your injury.

Yeargin Inc. employees exposed to asbestos

While insulators and pipefitters were the occupational groups who were heavily exposed to asbestos, everyone who was employed at Yeargin Inc. was in contact with asbestos to a certain extent. The employees responsible for maintaining and repairing pipes, which were insulated with asbestos, would often have to disturb the product, which made asbestos fibers become airborne. As a consequence, everyone who was in close proximity would breathe in and swallow toxic fibers. In the regrettable event that you came to struggle with a disease as a result of workplace asbestos exposure at Yeargin Inc. please contact our law firm at your earliest convenience, as we have been pursuing asbestos exposure cases since 1990 and will gladly provide you with quality legal assistance to recover the compensation you are entitled to from your former employer. The only documents we will need from you are your employment and medical records, as the rest of the paperwork will be efficiently handled by our skillful legal team. We will file a personal injury claim with Yeargin Inc. that will eventually result in the maximum compensation available for your disease. 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 Yeargin Inc. workers


During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure was a very frequent occurrence among the family members of people who were working with asbestos, as they were not provided with adequate protective equipment on the job and were also not required to change their clothes at the end of their shift. As a result, Yeargin Inc. employees would bring home asbestos dust on their clothes, skin and hair, thereby exposing their family members. While their wives would inhale and ingest toxic fibers when laundering their work clothes, their children would come in contact with the dangerous mineral when greeting their father upon returning home from the job. In the unfortunate event that you suffer from a disease you believe is the consequence of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm for a free of charge case review. After a thorough discussion with our legal team, they will be able to tell you with certainty whether you qualify for compensation. If you do, your involvement in the legal process will be minimal, as you will only have to send your attorney the employment records of your family member who was employed at Yeargin Inc. and your medical records, documents that will be used as evidence to support your claim, which will be filed with the liable company. Eventually, you will obtain the most favorable outcome for your case if you decide to work with our experienced law firm and the financial compensation will also help you afford superior healthcare and treatment.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

It is not uncommon for victims of asbestos exposure to refuse to take legal action during their lifetime, usually out of fear of a long and complicated process. While the legal process is very complex, it will require minimal involvement on your part if you lost a family member to a disease caused by asbestos exposure and would like to recover compensation on their behalf, as you will only have to provide your attorney with the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as with their death certificate, which must clearly state that they passed away due to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. The rest of the necessary paperwork will be carefully taken care of by our resourceful legal team. Your wrongful death asbestos exposure claim will be filed with Yeargin Inc. In the end, you will recover the maximum compensation available from the responsible company on behalf 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.
