Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Fibreboard Company workers
If you struggle with a disease as a consequence of living under the same roof as a Fibreboard Company worker, you are eligible for compensation, too. Throughout the last century, numerous people were indirectly exposed to asbestos because they had a family member who would regularly handle asbestos at work. Several decades later, some of them developed awful illnesses, such as pulmonary fibrosis, gastrointestinal cancer, or mesothelioma, as asbestos fibers cause damage to internal organs slowly. It is estimated that up to 10% of asbestos victims fell ill due to secondary exposure.
With nearly 30 years of experience in toxic exposure cases, our lawyers will help you claim the financial compensation you deserve. The asbestos trust fund established by Fibreboard Company pays out money not only to people affected by occupational exposure but also to those who underwent secondary exposure. For more information about the legal process, please contact Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. and we will gladly assist you.
