Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Esso Standard Oil Co. workers
If you shared a living space with a worker who handled asbestos at Esso Standard Oil Co. chances are that you were secondarily exposed to asbestos, which increases your risk of developing a serious disease over the decades. Diseases that stem from asbestos exposure take between 20 and 50 years to develop, which is why we strongly advise the family members of former Esso Standard Oil Co. to undergo a periodical medical examination, as they may unknowingly suffer from a disease as a result of secondary asbestos exposure. During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure would occur when the workers of Esso Standard Oil Co. would return home with asbestos fibers on their clothes, as well as on their hair and skin, from which they would subsequently be inhaled and ingested by the family members whom they lived with. Nevertheless, it is important to know that if you are a victim of secondary asbestos exposure, you are also entitled to financial compensation from the liable company. Our attorneys, who have been helping the family members of asbestos workers since 1990, will help you file a claim for secondary asbestos exposure. After a thorough discussion, during which you will need to describe the circumstances of your secondary asbestos exposure, you will have to provide your lawyer with the employment records of your family member who worked with asbestos and with your medical records, as evidence must accompany your claim. In the end, you will receive the compensation you deserve for your diagnosis, the sum of money highly depending on the severity of the disease you have.
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 fail to take legal action during their lifetime. However, their surviving family members can recover compensation on their behalf, provided that the person who was exposed to asbestos on the job lost their life to a related disease. With over 25 years of professional experience, our law firm will help you obtain financial compensation on behalf of your deceased loved one by filing a wrongful death claim with Esso Standard Oil Co. It is important to know that, even if your family member failed to seek compensation while they were alive, you still qualify for filing a wrongful death claim. The only documents you will have to send your attorney are the employment and medical records of your family member, as well as their death certificate, which must state that they died of a disease which was the result of workplace asbestos exposure. Eventually, our attorneys will recover fair compensation on behalf of your lost family member.
