Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Firestone Coated Fabrics workers
Occurring when a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure was very frequent among the family members of asbestos workers during the last century. Since they were not given any protective equipment when handling asbestos, employees would often come back home from the job with asbestos dust on their clothes, skin and hair. While their wives would breathe in and swallow asbestos fibers when laundering their work clothes, their children would be exposed to the dangerous mineral when greeting their fathers upon returning home. This is how secondary asbestos exposure occurred during the last century. If you developed a disease you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm, as we specialize in toxic exposure cases. After a thorough evaluation, our attorneys will be able to tell you with certainty if you qualify for compensation. If you do, they will promptly begin working on your claim, which will be filed against Firestone Coated Fabrics. The only documents you will have to send your lawyer are the employment records of your family member and your medical records, which will be used as evidence to support your case. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your physical and emotional distress.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
It is not uncommon for people injured by occupational asbestos exposure to refuse to seek financial compensation for their disease during their lifetime, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by workplace asbestos exposure, we will help you file a wrongful death claim with Firestone Coated Fabrics to recover the compensation you are entitled to as a surviving family member. All you have to do is explain your situation to our legal team and provide your attorneys with the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as with their death certificate, which must state that they lost their life to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. Subsequently, our legal team will begin working on your claim by preparing the other necessary paperwork and by conducting extensive research to discover additional evidence for your claim. Eventually, you will receive fair compensation on behalf of your family member. It is important, however, to keep in mind that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years from the moment of death in the majority of states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.
