Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Citgo Refinery workers
If you lived under the same roof as a Citgo Refinery worker, you were inevitably exposed to asbestos as well. Secondary asbestos exposure was a very frequent occurrence during the last century, as people who handled asbestos on the job would not be provided with the protective equipment they needed, which resulted in them returning home with asbestos fibers on their clothes, skin, and hair. By laundering their work clothes, the wives of Citgo Refinery workers would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers, whereas their children would be exposed to asbestos when greeting their fathers upon returning home from the job. In the regrettable event that you developed a disease which you suspect is the consequence of secondary asbestos exposure, we strongly advise you to take legal action. Our attorneys, who have been helping the victims of secondary asbestos exposure since 1990, will help you file a claim with the responsible company, which will result in the maximum compensation you are entitled to. The money you will receive by filing a claim will also help you afford better healthcare and treatment. Thereby, if you are a victim of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm, as we will gladly provide you with the legal assistance you need. The only documents you will need to send your attorney are the employment records of your family member who worked at Citgo Refinery and your medical records, which will serve as evidence for your asbestos claim.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
The surviving family members of a victim of asbestos exposure who did not take legal action during their lifetime can file a wrongful death claim to recover financial compensation on the behalf of their deceased loved one. Our attorneys will help you throughout the entire legal process, which will result in the most favorable outcome if you choose to work with our law firm. The documents you will need to provide your lawyer with are the employment and medical records of your family members, as well as their death certificate, which must state that their death was the cause of a disease that stemmed from workplace asbestos exposure. Nevertheless, it is important to keep in mind 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, if it expires, you will lose your right to obtaining compensation. Consequently, we strongly encourage you to take legal action immediately.
