In an example of justice coming late rather than never, former Monsanto employees who worked at the Everett plant before 1981 afflicted with cancer are now entitled to special benefits, according to Robert McKim Norris of Norris Injury Lawyers, a prominent Alabama law rm specializing in asbestos poisoning and disease.
Everett Plant workers employed before 1981 diagnosed with various cancers are entitled to special benefits. Lung cancer, esophageal cancer, laryngeal cancer, pharyngeal cancer, stomach cancer, colon cancer, rectal cancer, and mesothelioma are frequently caused by asbestos exposure.
Asbestos-laced products were used for decades at Monsanto. Neither employees nor management were aware of the asbestos risk.
The former Monsanto site is now the Gateway Center.
According to the National Cancer Institute, “It can take from 10 to 40 years or more for asbestos-related cancers to appear.”
Monsanto employees from 35 years ago are eligible.
To compensate cancer victims and the families of deceased cancer victims, Federal Bankruptcy Courts have required asbestos manufacturers to set aside hundreds of millions of dollars in private trusts.
Through these trusts, cancer victims can receive money damages by the ling of timely, detailed, and accurate claims.
Norris Injury Lawyers has announced a specific initiative to assist Monsanto employees in recovering money set aside for them in these asbestos trusts.
Cancer victims or the families of deceased victims who worked at the plant before 1981 may call 800-478-9578 for a free evaluation of their claim.
