Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of American Locomotive Company Cooke Works workers
Secondary asbestos exposure was a frequent occurrence among the family members of asbestos workers during the last century. Because they were not provided with any protective equipment, workers would often bring home asbestos fibers on their clothes, as well as on their skin and hair. By laundering their work clothes, their wives would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers, while their children were exposed to asbestos to a significant extent when greeting their fathers upon returning home from the job. This is how secondary asbestos exposure would occur. In the unfortunate event that you developed a disease which you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm for a free of charge case review, as you may qualify for compensation from the responsible company. If you have a case, all you will have to do is send your attorney the employment records of your family member and your medical records, which will stand as evidence to support your claim. A claim will be filed with American Locomotive Company Cooke Works, which is bound to result in fair compensation for you if you choose to work with our law firm. Lastly, it is important to know that we work on a contingency fee basis, which means that you will not have to pay our attorneys anything unless they recover financial compensation for you.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
It is not uncommon for victims of workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to take legal action during their lifetime out of fear of a long and complicated process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member who was suffering from a disease as a result of occupational asbestos exposure, you can file a wrongful death claim with American Locomotive Company Cooke Works, which will eventually result in compensation. While the legal process is very complex, your involvement will be minimal, as you will only have to send your attorney the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must state that their death occurred as a consequence of a disease caused by asbestos exposure. Afterward, our resourceful legal team will take over and attend to the remaining aspects of the legal process on your behalf. In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your family member from the responsible company. It is important, however, to keep in mind that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years from the moment of death in the majority of states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.
