Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Continental Can Company workers
Occurring when one inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure was very common among the family members of Continental Can Company during the last century, as employees were not required to wear any protective equipment when maintaining and repairing machinery components that contained asbestos. Thereby, they would often come back home with asbestos dust on their clothes, skin, and hair, exposing their family members. While their wives would breathe in and swallow asbestos fibers when laundering their work clothes, their children came in contact with the toxic mineral when greeting their fathers upon returning home from the job.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
Oftentimes, people injured by workplace 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 occupational asbestos exposure, we will help you file a wrongful death claim with the responsible company to recover fair compensation on their behalf. After the initial discussion with our legal team, during which you will have to explain your situation thoroughly, you will have to send your attorney the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must clearly state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. While complex and tedious, the legal process will require minimal involvement on your part, as the rest of the paperwork will be carefully taken care of by our legal team. In the end, you will receive the compensation you are entitled to on behalf of your lost family member. It is important to keep in mind, however, 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.
