Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Erie Lackawanna Railroad workers
During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure was a very common occurrence among the family members of asbestos workers, as they were not given the protective equipment they needed when handling dangerous products. Even though the asbestos companies have been aware of the dramatic health effects of asbestos exposure on the health of employees since 1920, they continued employing the carcinogenic mineral for their own financial gain. Usually, secondary asbestos exposure would occur in the family members of Erie Lackawanna Railroad employees when their wives had to launder their work clothes, as well as when their children would greet their fathers upon returning home from the job, often covered in asbestos dust.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
It is not uncommon for people who were injured by occupational asbestos exposure to refuse to seek the compensation they deserve while they are alive, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member who was suffering from a disease as a consequence of workplace asbestos exposure, we can help you file a wrongful death claim with Erie Lackawanna Railroad. Although complex, the legal process will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to provide your attorney with the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as with their death certificate, which must state that their death was the result of a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. Since 1990, we have been pursuing compensation for the victims of toxic exposure and their family members and will gladly offer you quality legal assistance and representation. In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation you qualify for on behalf of your lost family member. It is important, however, to keep in mind that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years in most states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.
