Quality Legal Assistance and Representation for Secondary Asbestos Exposure Victims
Taking place when a person would breathe in or swallow asbestos fibers without being in direct contact with the source of contamination, secondary asbestos exposure was incredibly common in the households of people who regularly handled this carcinogenic mineral on the job before the 1980s. The workers at Crown Cork & Seal Company, Inc. made no exception. While numerous family members of employees who came in contact with toxic fibers have already received a grim diagnosis, new cases are still expected to arise throughout the country over the next two decades. Typically, secondary exposure to asbestos would occur when laundering work clothes, in the case of women, and when greeting the asbestos worker, in the case of children. Since the dangers of asbestos exposure had been kept a secret until the end of the century, neither employees, nor consumers had any idea with regard to the menace.
