Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Armco Inc. workers
During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure was a frequent occurrence among the family members of people who handled the toxic mineral on the job, including Armco Inc. workers. Because they were not required to wear any protective equipment on the job, they would often bring home asbestos dust on their clothes, skin and hair. This way, their wives would be exposed to asbestos when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would inhale and ingest toxic fibers when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. If you struggle with a disease you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact us, as we specialize in pursuing toxic exposure cases. After the initial discussion with our legal team, during which you will be asked to describe the circumstances of your asbestos exposure, you will have to provide our attorneys with the employment records of your family member and with your medical records, documents that will be used as evidence to support your claim. The claim will be filed by our resourceful attorneys with Armco Inc. and will eventually result in the maximum compensation available for your diagnosis.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
It is not uncommon for the victims of workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to seek the compensation they deserve while they are still alive, 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 will help you file a wrongful death claim to recover compensation on their behalf. While very complex, the legal process will require minimal involvement on your part, 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 clearly state that they lost their life to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. The remaining necessary paperwork will be carefully taken care of by our legal team. In the end, you will receive fair compensation on behalf of your lost family member. It is important to keep in mind, however, that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years from the moment of death in most states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.
