Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Birmingham Ornamental Iron workers
Occurring when one inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure was very common among the family members of the people who regularly handled asbestos on the job during the last century. Because they were not required to wear any protective equipment while working with asbestos, employees would often return home with toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair. While their wives would breathe in and swallow asbestos when laundering their work clothes, their children would be exposed to it when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. If you suffer from a disease you believe is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm, as our attorneys have been pursuing toxic exposure cases for over 25 years.

In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your physical and emotional distress, which will also help you afford better healthcare and treatment.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
Oftentimes, victims of workplace asbestos exposure refuse to seek compensation for their diagnosis, 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, our attorneys will help you file a wrongful death claim to recover financial compensation on their behalf. While the legal process is complex and tedious, it will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to send your attorney their employment and medical records, as well as their death certificate, which must clearly state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. The remaining paperwork will be carefully taken care of by our resourceful legal team. You will eventually recover fair compensation on behalf of your lost family members if you decide to work with our law firm. 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 the majority of states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.
