Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Furnco Construction Corp. workers
Secondary asbestos exposure, which occurs when a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, was very frequent among the family members of Furnco Construction Corp. during the last century. Contrary to popular belief, secondary asbestos exposure can be as dangerous as workplace asbestos exposure, since no amount of asbestos is safe for the human body. The wives of asbestos workers were exposed when washing up their clothes, which were covered in toxic dust, whereas their children would breathe in and swallow asbestos fibers when greeting their fathers upon returning home from the job. In the regrettable event that you lived under the same roof as a Furnco Construction Corp. family member and subsequently developed a disease you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, we strongly encourage you to contact our law firm, as we have been pursuing compensation for the family members of asbestos workers for over 25 years. Although the legal process is complex, it will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to send your attorney the employment records of your family member and your medical records, documents which will stand as evidence in your claim, which will be filed against Furnco Construction Corp. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your injury, which will also help you afford superior healthcare and treatment.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
Oftentimes, people who developed a disease as a result of workplace exposure refuse to seek financial compensation from the responsible company, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease that was caused by asbestos exposure, our attorneys, who specialize in toxic exposure cases, will help you file a wrongful death claim against Furnco Construction Corp. to recover the money you deserve on their behalf. The only documents you will need to send your lawyer are the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must clearly state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. With the permanent assistance of our legal team, your involvement in the legal process will be minimal, as we will gladly take care of the remaining paperwork for you. You will eventually receive the maximum compensation you qualify for if you choose to work with our law firm. It is important to know, however, 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 prompt you to take legal action immediately.
