Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of A.P. Green Services Inc. workers
Secondary asbestos exposure, which occurs when a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, was very prevalent among the family members of A.P. Green Services Inc. employees during the last century. As they were not given any protective equipment when handling asbestos, workers would often return home covered in asbestos dust, which would be present on their clothes, skin and hair. While their wives would be exposed to asbestos when laundering their work clothes, their children would breathe in and swallow asbestos fibers when greeting their fathers upon coming back home from the job. This is how secondary asbestos exposure would occur. In the regrettable case that you struggle with a disease you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, which may be, if you shared a living space with a family member who, at the time, was working for A.P.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
It is not uncommon for victims of workplace exposure to refuse to seek the financial compensation they deserve from the liable company during their lifetime, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure, we can help you file a wrongful death claim, which will result in financial compensation on their behalf. While the legal process is very complex, your involvement will be minimal, as you will only have to provide your attorney with the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as with their death certificate, which must state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure, such as lung cancer or mesothelioma. Afterward, our experienced legal team will take care of the remaining paperwork which the preparation of your claim entails. We will also gather additional evidence to support your case, which will guarantee a satisfactory outcome in the end. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation available on behalf of your family member if you choose to work with our law firm. 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.
