Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Chattanooga Coke & Chemical workers

If you shared a living space with a family member who was working at Chattanooga Coke & Chemical during the last century, you were inevitably exposed to asbestos, as workers would not be provided with the protective equipment they needed when handling the carcinogenic mineral. Thereby, they would often return home from the job with asbestos dust on their clothes, skin and hair. Their wives were exposed to asbestos when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children were exposed to asbestos when greeting their fathers upon coming home from work. If you developed a disease you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm and we will promptly offer you a free of charge case review. Since 1990, we have been providing quality legal assistance to victims of asbestos exposure and their family members and will also do it for you.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

Oftentimes, victims of occupational asbestos exposure choose not to take legal action to recover the compensation they deserve out of fear of a long and complicated process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by workplace asbestos exposure, you can file a wrongful death claim with their former employer with the help of our law firm. While complex and tedious, the legal process only requires you to send your lawyer the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must state that they lost their life to a disease caused by asbestos exposure. Afterward, our skillful legal team will efficiently take care of the remaining aspects of the process for you so that you can focus on more important matters in the meantime. Because solid evidence must accompany your wrongful death claim, our legal experts will also conduct research of their own to discover additional proof for your case. Eventually, you will receive the compensation you deserve on behalf of your lost family member. It is important, however, to keep in mind that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years from the moment of death in most states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.
