Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of American Oil Company workers
Secondary asbestos exposure, which occurs when someone inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, was very frequent among the family members of American Oil Company before 1980. Therefore, if you lived under the same roof as a worker who handled asbestos on the job, you were also exposed to asbestos, though to a lesser degree. Nevertheless, secondary asbestos exposure can be as dangerous as occupational asbestos exposure, since no amount of asbestos is safe for the human body. In the unfortunate event that you developed a disease you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, we strongly encourage you to contact our law firm, as you may be entitled to compensation. After you explain your situation to our legal team, our attorneys, who specialize in toxic exposure cases, will determine if you are eligible for compensation. If you are, they will begin preparing your claim, which will also be filed against American Oil Company. While complex and tedious, the legal process will only require you to send your lawyer the employment records of your family member and your medical records, documents that will accompany your claim as evidence. In the end, you will recover fair compensation for your injury if you choose to use the services of our law firm. It is important to know that we work on a contingency fee basis, which means that you do not owe our legal team any money unless our attorneys obtain 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 seek legal assistance during their lifetime, as they often fear a long and complicated process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease that was the result of occupational asbestos exposure, you can file a wrongful death claim to recover the compensation you deserve on their behalf. Since 1990, we have been providing quality legal assistance to victims of asbestos exposure and their surviving family members and will gladly help you file a wrongful death claim, too. The only documents you will need to send your attorney are the employment and medical records of your family member, as well as their death certificate, which must state that their life was claimed by a disease caused by asbestos exposure. Afterward, our skillful legal team will efficiently take care of the remaining aspects of the legal process for you, which will allow you to focus on more important matters in the meantime. Within 3 months to one year, depending on the complexity of your case, you will receive the compensation you are entitled to from American Oil Company. It is important to know, however, 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.
