Secondary victims of asbestos exposure can get compensated too
When asbestos fibers are disturbed in the process of manufacturing products containing it or simply doing maintenance work, these fibers can get released into the air, inhaled, and get trapped inside your lungs. However, there is also the possibility that family members get exposed to asbestos as well since very often workers would bring the fibers home embedded in on their clothes. Related diseases can take many years to show signs, even after the exposure has stopped. Since industrial hygiene was not very well managed, the risk of developing asbestos-related lung diseases for workers that have spent time in a contaminated environment is bigger than you’d expect.
Victims of a faulty work environment and their family members can file claims and get compensated. If you or a family member have been diagnosed with asbestos-related lung disease, you have to take action quickly as these cases usually have a statute of limitations. Our experienced team of lawyers has helped thousands of victims and can help you too. Contact us and we will analyze your case and help you file a claim. We’re prepared to answer any question you might have regarding the process and get you compensation.
