Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of AVCO Aerostructures workers
If you lived under the same roof as a family member who was working at AVCO Aerostructures at the time, you were most likely exposed to asbestos as well, which is known as secondary asbestos exposure. Since employees were not required to wear any protective equipment when handling asbestos on the job, they would often return home with asbestos dust on their clothes, skin and hair. While their wives would inhale and ingest toxic fibers when laundering their work clothes, their children would come in contact with the dangerous mineral when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. If you suffer from a disease you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm, as our attorneys have been pursuing toxic exposure cases for over 25 years. After a thorough discussion with our legal team, during which you will need to thoroughly explain the circumstances of your asbestos exposure, our attorneys will begin preparing your claim for submission. While very complex, the legal process will only require you to send your attorney the employment records of your family member who worked with asbestos and your medical records, documents that will be used as proof to support your claim. You will eventually recover the maximum compensation you qualify for from the liable company, which will also help you afford superior healthcare and treatment.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
Oftentimes, people who were injured by occupational asbestos exposure refuse to seek the compensation they deserve while they are alive, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by workplace asbestos exposure, our attorneys will help you file a wrongful death claim with the responsible company to recover fair compensation on their behalf. We will only need the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must clearly state that they passed away due to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. The remaining necessary paperwork will be carefully taken care of by our legal team, which will make your involvement in the legal process minimal. In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation available on behalf of your lost family member if you decide 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.
