The spouses and children of former Boise Cascade Corporation workers might also be at risk
While it is primarily exposure which occurs in the workplace that leads to a harrowing disease, people who came in contact with asbestos in non-industrial settings may as well develop a serious illness. A prime example in this respect is secondary exposure, which has so far affected thousands of family members of asbestos workers. By inhaling or ingesting the toxic asbestos fibers employees would unknowingly carry home on their work clothes on a regular basis, their wives and children were also exposed to asbestos, which could later result in a fatal disease. From asbestosis to mesothelioma, secondary asbestos exposure can cause the same illnesses as heavy exposure which takes place in occupational circumstances, although more rarely. It is estimated that secondary exposure is the culprit behind 10% of the people whose health was compromised by asbestos-related diseases.

Legal recourse for victims of asbestos exposure and their families
Considering the presence of asbestos in both the products of Boise Cascade Corporation and their facilities, it should not come as a surprise that numerous people have subsequently come to suffer from devastating diseases such as pulmonary fibrosis and lung cancer 10 to 50 years after their first exposure. While money will never be a replacement for health, the compensation you can recover by filing a claim against Boise Cascade Corporation if you were injured by occupational asbestos exposure may allow you access to better treatment and care.
