Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of General Construction Services workers
For over 60 years, asbestos companies went to appalling lengths to keep secret the fact that asbestos exposure could lead to cancer. They went as far as bribing medical researchers to alter the results of their studies on the toxicity of asbestos. For this reason, employees who handled asbestos on the job would not have to wear protective equipment against inhaling or ingesting asbestos fibers, and they did not have to change their clothes at the end of the day either. As a consequence, their family members would be secondarily exposed to asbestos from the clothes of these workers. Their wives would usually breathe in carcinogenic fibers when laundering their garments, whereas their children would inhale asbestos fibers when greeting their fathers.
If you developed a disease that has a link to asbestos exposure, you should give our law firm a call, as you may be eligible for compensation. The process of filing a claim for secondary asbestos exposure is relatively similar to that of filing a regular asbestos exposure claim. You will first have to explain your situation in detail and then send our legal team the employment records of your family member and your medical records stating your diagnosis. Our skilled lawyers will review your case, and if they find that you qualify, they will begin preparing your claim for submission as soon as possible. In the end, you will have the compensation you deserve for your suffering.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
Regrettably, many victims of asbestos exposure pass away without having obtained the financial compensation they were entitled to. To solve this problem, their surviving family members, such as children and spouses, can opt to file a wrongful death claim to obtain money on their behalf. Their former employer is responsible for their death, which means that you have every right to file a claim with the company, as it must offer you the compensation you deserve.
If you decided to file a wrongful death claim, you should give us a phone call, describe your situation, and then send our legal experts the employment and medical records of your departed loved one and their death certificate. We will carefully weigh your case, and if our attorneys determine that you qualify for filing a claim, they will quickly start preparing it for submission. Eventually, with minimal involvement on your part, you will benefit from a part of the sum of money your family member would have.
