Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Dresser Industries workers
As a consequence of the unbelievable endeavors of asbestos companies to hide the dangers of asbestos exposure, it was only in 1971 that EPA recognized the mineral as a human carcinogen. Thus, for over four decades, both workers and consumers were exposed to asbestos, to whose terrible health consequences they were oblivious. Unfortunately, the families of people who handled asbestos on the job made no exception either, as lack of adequate industrial hygiene prompted employees to bring home asbestos fibers on their clothes. Oftentimes, they would return to their spouses and children covered in visible asbestos dust. Due to their microscopic size and rough texture, asbestos fibers can spread very easily through the environment and remain there for years. The family members of Dresser Industries workers are susceptible to developing the same awful diseases as asbestos employees themselves, from asbestosis to mesothelioma.

Legal assistance in asbestos exposure cases for former Dresser Industries employees
While we are aware money can never replace health, we strongly advise you to take legal action to recover the compensation you deserve if you were injured by Dresser Industries. Due to the overwhelming number of lawsuits filed against it, the company was forced to seek bankruptcy protection and as a result, they were required to establish a trust fund to provide former employees with financial compensation. Thereby, because the process involves no litigation, you can benefit from the money you are eligible for in a considerably shorter amount of time than you would have by filing a lawsuit. With nearly 30 years of professional experience, our attorneys will help you navigate the legal process and achieve the optimal results for your case.
