Many family members of ASARCO workers were injured by secondary asbestos exposure
By returning home with asbestos dust on their clothes, which was seen as mere “nuisance dust” at the time, workers were inadvertently endangering the health of their loved ones, who could easily inhale the toxic fibers. Secondary asbestos exposure was highly prevalent among the family members of ASARCO employees. While spouses would be exposed to asbestos when laundering their husbands’ work clothes, children would breathe in carcinogenic fibers upon greeting or playing with their father. As a consequence, numerous people who had never handled asbestos themselves were later diagnosed with mesothelioma or another awful disease, which was subsequently revealed to be the result of domestic asbestos exposure.
The asbestos trust fund set up by ASARCO also provides financial compensation to the family members of former employees who were affected by secondary asbestos exposure, whether their diagnosis is pleural plaques or lung cancer. Our lawyers have successfully assisted over 200,000 asbestos victims with filing a claim since 1990 and will gladly help you as well. Seeking compensation from asbestos trust funds is a simple process that requires no litigation. For more information, please feel free to contact us and we will thoroughly answer all your questions.
