Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of American Can Company workers
Ever since the beginning of the last century, asbestos companies have gone to incredible lengths to keep the health dangers of asbestos exposure hidden from workers and the general population. This was because asbestos was easy to work with, cheap, and widely available. Companies went as far as bribing medical researchers to make them alter the results of their studies on asbestos toxicity. A consequence of this conspiracy was secondary asbestos exposure, which was very common in the families of American Can Company workers.
Because employees were not wearing protective equipment against exposure to asbestos and were not required to change their work clothes at the end of the day either, they would bring home asbestos dust. While their wives would often inhale asbestos fibers when laundering their work clothes, their children would come in contact with the mineral when greeting their fathers. If you lived in the same house as a worker of American Can Company and received a diagnosis that seems related to asbestos exposure, we advise you to get in touch with us, as you may be eligible to file a claim for compensation as well.
