Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Anaconda Wire and Cable Company workers
As a very common occurrence during the last century, secondary asbestos exposure would happen when a person inhaled or ingested asbestos fibers from indirect sources. Because asbestos companies were striving to cover up the terrible health effects of asbestos exposure, workers, including those employed at Anaconda Wire and Cable Company, were not instructed to wear protective gear on the job. Consequently, they would bring home toxic fibers on their clothes and their shoes, hair, and skin. When their wives would launder their work clothes, they would breathe in asbestos fibers, whereas their children would be exposed to the mineral by greeting their fathers upon returning home.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
Sadly, many victims of asbestos exposure refuse or fail to seek financial compensation during their lifetime, either because they pass away suddenly or because they fear a long and convoluted legal process. However, if you have recently lost a dear one to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure, you can now file a wrongful death claim to obtain compensation on their behalf. Filing a wrongful death claim entails a process similar to filing a regular asbestos exposure claim.
If you decided to file a wrongful death claim, you will first have to contact our law firm and give us as many details as you know about your situation. Subsequently, we will ask for copies of the employment and medical records of your departed family member, as well as for their death certificate, so we can assess the circumstances. If we establish that you are eligible to file a claim, we will promptly begin to work on it, and you will eventually get the largest sum of money available.
