The family members of Amatex Corporation workers are susceptible to lung disease too
Due to the high prevalence of secondary asbestos exposure, the families of Amatex Corporation employees are also at risk for developing terrible diseases such as lung cancer and mesothelioma in the future. Taking place when one inhales or ingests asbestos fibers without being in direct contact with the source of contamination, secondary exposure is responsible for up to 10% of asbestos victims. It was not uncommon for Amatex Corporation employees to return home covered with asbestos dust, as they were not required to change or shower upon leaving the facility. This way, their spouses would often breathe in carcinogenic fibers while laundering their clothes, whereas their children would do the same when greeting their fathers. Unsurprisingly, a significant number of these individuals have later come to suffer from similar diseases as asbestos workers themselves and new cases continue to emerge annually.
Have you lived under the same roof as someone who was employed at Amatex Corporation before 1980? If so, you might develop a disease as a result of the secondary asbestos exposure you were unavoidably subjected to. We advise you to monitor your health and seek medical attention as soon as you notice anything out of the ordinary. Secondary asbestos exposure victims qualify for compensation from the Amatex Corporation trust fund as well. Therefore, if you ever receive a grim diagnosis, do not hesitate to contact our lawyers and they will gladly lend you a helping hand. So far, they have collectively recovered over $1.4 billion for people injured by asbestos exposure. Whether you decided to file a claim or would just like to find out more about the legal process, feel free to give us a call and we will thoroughly answer all your questions.
