Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Dispatch Printing Co. workers
If you lived under the same roof as a family member who was working as a heavy equipment operator at Dispatch Printing Co. during the last century, you were most likely exposed to asbestos as well, since employees would often bring home toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair. Secondary asbestos exposure occurs when a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources. While the wives of Dispatch Printing Co. employees would breathe in and swallow asbestos fibers when laundering their work clothes, their children would come in contact with the dangerous mineral when greeting their father upon returning home from the job. If you struggle with a disease you believe is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm for a free of charge case review. After a thorough discussion, our attorneys will be able to tell you with certainty whether you qualify for compensation. If you do, your involvement in the legal process will be minimal, as you will only have to provide your lawyer with the employment records of your family member and with your medical records, documents that will stand as evidence to support your claim. In the end, several months to one year following claim submission, you will recover the maximum compensation you are entitled to for your diagnosis from the responsible company.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
It is not uncommon for a victim of workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to take legal action during their lifetime, usually out of fear of a long and complicated process. While the legal process is very complex, it will require minimal involvement on your part if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure and want to recover compensation on their behalf. The only documents we will need from you before starting to prepare your wrongful death claim for submission are 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. The rest of the necessary paperwork will be efficiently handled by our resourceful legal team. 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 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.
