Victims of secondary asbestos exposure are also entitled to financial compensation from energy future holdings
Occupational exposure is not the only way one may come in contact with asbestos. Although the vast majority of people who are now experiencing the awful health effects of asbestos exposure encountered the mineral in the workplace, there is a handful who never worked with asbestos themselves, yet are struggling with illnesses such as lung cancer or mesothelioma. These individuals are mostly family members of asbestos workers. Because asbestos fibers have microscopic dimensions, they can easily infiltrate non-occupational environments, including households. During the last century, Energy Future Holdings employees would frequently bring home asbestos fibers on their clothes, as the company did not require them to change before leaving the facility.
Numerous family members of Energy Future Holdings workers have been diagnosed with asbestos-related diseases within the past three decades, while many others are expected to develop terrible illnesses as well in the near future. If you, too, shared a living space with someone who was employed at this company, we encourage you to undergo a medical examination at least once a year, as the risk never diminishes. As for the people who are already struggling with a disease as a result of secondary asbestos exposure, we urge you to take legal action immediately. You are also eligible for financial compensation, which might help you tremendously with affording the treatment you need. Specializing in cases of asbestos exposure, our attorneys will provide you with quality legal assistance and representation.
