Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of American Crane Corporation workers
Having shared the same house with a family member who was working at American Crane Corporation during the last century places you at significant risk of developing a serious disease yourself. This is because you were most likely secondarily exposed to asbestos. Secondary asbestos exposure occurs when one comes in contact with asbestos from indirect sources. It was very common in the families of asbestos workers, including those employed at American Crane Corporation, as asbestos companies did all in their power to hide the health dangers of asbestos exposure for their own financial gain.
As a result, employees who handled asbestos were not provided with protective equipment to wear on the job, and they were not asked to change their clothes at the end of their shift either. For this reason, they would bring home asbestos dust on their work clothes nearly every day. While their wives would usually be exposed to asbestos when laundering their clothes, their children would inhale and ingest toxic fibers when greeting their fathers. If one of your family members was a worker of American Crane Corporation and you have a disease that has a link to asbestos exposure, please contact our attorneys, as you may be eligible for compensation.
