Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC workers
While secondary asbestos exposure was very prevalent among the family members of asbestos workers during the last century, it is not a serious concern today, as employees who handle asbestos have to wear protective equipment on the job, which is usually disposed of at the end of their shift. Thereby, the chances of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC workers to bring home asbestos dust on their clothes, skin and hair are relatively small. Nonetheless, secondary asbestos exposure may still occur if employees are not careful, which may lead to the development of serious diseases among their family members.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
Oftentimes, victims of workplace asbestos exposure fail to take legal action while they are alive, usually out of fear of a long and complicated process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member who was working at Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure, we can help you file a wrongful death claim to recover compensation on their behalf.

You will eventually receive the maximum compensation available as a surviving family member if you choose to work with our law firm.
