The family members of former Borg Warner Automotive employees are susceptible to lung disease too
Before the company became asbestos-free, inhabiting the same house as a Borg Warner Automotive worker entailed a high risk of secondary exposure. In the absence of adequate industrial hygiene, people who took part in the manufacturing of boilers would often carry home microscopic asbestos fibers on their clothes, as well as in their hair and on their skin. These hazardous particles would later be inhaled or ingested by family members, either by laundering the worker’s clothes (in the case of wives) or by greeting the person in question (in the case of children). Unfortunately, many of these individuals came to suffer from terrible diseases several decades later.
Secondary asbestos exposure is just as dangerous as direct exposure and can cause the same diseases, from asbestosis and pulmonary fibrosis to lung cancer and mesothelioma. Therefore, if you have a Borg Warner Automotive worker in your family, you should keep a close eye on your health and seek medical attention immediately if you experience symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, a persisting cough, or fatigue. In the regrettable event that you are diagnosed with a disease that ensued as a consequence of secondary asbestos exposure, our experienced attorneys will help you recover the compensation you deserve.
