We Also Offer Legal Assistance to the Family Members of Eagle-Pitcher Industries Workers Injured by Secondary Asbestos Exposure
Since companies kept insisting that asbestos exposure is absolutely safe, people who had a family member working with the mineral were not concerned about their health in the slightest when he would return home covered in toxic dust. Indirect exposure, also known as secondary exposure, happens when one comes in contact with a hazardous substance or matter without interacting first-hand with the source of contamination. In the case of asbestos, this route of exposure was most common among family members of workers, who would unwittingly inhale or ingest carcinogenic fibers from the clothes of the person in question. The majority of women who now struggle with mesothelioma were exposed to asbestos when laundering their husbands’ work clothes, as this entailed shaking the garments out, which would inevitably release asbestos fibers in the air.
