The family members of Georgia Pacific Corporation employees who worked before 1977 might have also been exposed to asbestos
Asbestos exposure is falsely believed to have taken place exclusively in industrial settings such as chemical plants, shipyard, or textile mills by the majority of people. However, it is crucial to know that exposure to asbestos can take many forms, a person not being necessarily required to be in close proximity to the source of contamination to undergo dangerous exposure. The circumstances in which one is not in direct contact with asbestos yet inhales or ingests toxic fibers are referred to as secondary exposure. Secondary asbestos exposure would happen very often during the last century, the most common setting in which it would occur being households, as millions of people would handle asbestos on the job without wearing appropriate equipment. Moreover, workers did not have to change their clothes either, which would facilitate secondary exposure to a terrible extent. Thus, asbestos fibers would inadvertently be carried home by workers, where family members could easily breathe them in.
Similarly to people whose health was affected by occupational exposure, people injured by secondary asbestos exposure are entitled to financial compensation. If you have someone in your family who was employed at Georgia Pacific Corporation and now struggle with a disease associated with asbestos exposure, a lawyer specialized in asbestos cases will provide you with the assistance you need to recover the money you deserve for your physical and emotional suffering. With nearly 30 years of experience in pursuing compensation for asbestos victims, our attorneys are committed to helping you file a lawsuit against the company at fault with minimal involvement on your part. Seeking legal aid as soon as you have a diagnosis is crucial, as asbestos cases have a statute of limitation which could prevent you from recovering the compensation you are eligible for.
