Workers exposed to asbestos

As a trading name for ExxonMobil and their related companies, Esso Standard Oil Co. made use of tremendous amounts of asbestos during the last century, which now places former workers at high risk of developing a disease as a consequence of exposure. Truck drivers are particularly more likely to come to struggle with a disease as a result of asbestos exposure, as they would have to load and unload asbestos products on the job. Today, people who were injured by asbestos exposure while working at Esso Standard Oil Co. are eligible for compensation, which they can recover by filing a claim with the assistance of a lawyer who specializes in toxic exposure cases.

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.
