Secondary asbestos exposure, a major risk for the families of Bondex International workers
Gaining popularity as a raw material shortly after the Industrial Revolution, asbestos came to be known as “the miracle mineral” by the middle of the last century. Indeed, not only has it numerous convenient and exploitable properties such as excellent resistance to fire and remarkable durability, but it is also accessible and relatively cheap. Notwithstanding the countless advantages asbestos use has, there is one downside which, undoubtedly, outweighs all these benefits – asbestos is highly carcinogenic to humans. Between 1940 and 1978, over 11 million people were exposed to it, as well as plenty of their family members. While occupational exposure is currently seen as entailing the greatest health danger, secondary exposure is not free of risk either, a fact which is also supported by statistics. According to estimates, 10% of the individuals who suffer from a disease caused by asbestos inhalation or ingestion fell ill as a result of secondary exposure.
Nowadays, victims of secondary asbestos exposure are eligible for compensation. If you fear to spend countless hours attempting to claim the money you deserve for your injury, you are not alone. The majority of asbestos victims are reluctant to seek the financial compensation they are entitled to for the same reason.
