Secondary asbestos exposure, a major risk for the families of Babcock & Wilcox Company workers
Have you shared a house with a family member who, at the time, was working at Babcock & Wilcox Company? If so, your health might be at stake, regardless of how much time has elapsed since then. Similarly to most U.S. manufacturers which were employing asbestos, Babcock & Wilcox Company had a lax approach when it came to industrial hygiene. Thereby, people who partook in the manufacturing of boilers were not required to shower or change their clothes when their shift ended, which would lead to asbestos fibers making their way in non-industrial environments such as households.
Today, family members of asbestos workers make up 10% of asbestos victims and they also qualify for financial compensation from the Babcock & Wilcox Company asbestos trust fund set up in 2006. With the assistance of a lawyer specialized in toxic exposure cases, you can easily recover the money you deserve if you were indirectly harmed by the products of this company. The attorneys at Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. have been dedicating their endeavors to helping asbestos victims since 1990 and will eagerly aid you, too.
