Do you have a former Allied Signal, Inc. or Bendix Corporation Worker in your family? If you do, you might also be in danger
Secondary asbestos exposure, which occurs when one is in contact with harmful fibers without being in close proximity to the source of contamination, was unfortunately very common during the last century, as companies were lacking industrial hygiene almost completely. Thus, in addition to the 11 million workers who were being exposed to asbestos on the job daily, numerous of their family members would inhale or ingest carcinogenic fibers on a regular basis as well. Roughly 152,000 claims have been filed against Bendix Corporation between 1981 and 2009 via Honeywell, which had acquired the company in the meantime, as the awful health consequences of asbestos exposure began emerging. According to official sources, their value is estimated to be approximately $566 million.
However, people who developed a disease as a result of occupational asbestos exposure are not the only individuals who can seek financial compensation.
