Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Champion International Corp. workers
During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure was a common occurrence among the family members of workers who handled the toxic mineral on the job. While the employees of Champion International Corp. did not use asbestos for the manufacturing of paper and wood, they may have brought home a small amount of asbestos dust on their clothes. While their wives would inhale and ingest asbestos when laundering their work clothes, their children would be exposed to asbestos when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. If you lived under the same roof as a Champion International Corp. before 1980 and developed a disease you believe is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm and we will carefully assess your situation. In the fortunate event that you are eligible for filing a claim for compensation, our attorneys will provide you with quality legal assistance. We will only need the employment records of your family member who worked for the company and your medical records, documents that will stand as evidence to support your claim. In the end, you will recover the maximum compensation available for your diagnosis.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
Oftentimes, victims of occupational asbestos exposure refuse to seek the compensation they deserve while they are alive, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by workplace asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact us, as we specialize in toxic exposure cases. After the initial discussion, during which you will have to thoroughly explain your situation, we will only need the employment records of your deceased loved one, their medical records and their death certificate, which must state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. The rest of the necessary documents will be efficiently taken care of by our resourceful legal team. While the process is complex and tedious, it will require minimal involvement on your part, which will allow you to focus on more important aspects in the meantime. You will eventually receive the maximum compensation available on behalf of your lost family member if you decide to work with our law firm. It is important, however, to know 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.
