Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Glacier Park Inc. workers
While rare today, secondary asbestos exposure used to be a frequent occurrence during the last century, as employees were not required to change their clothes at the end of their shift and would thereby bring asbestos dust home. Today, secondary asbestos exposure occurs in isolated circumstances, as workers who have to handle asbestos products are given adequate protective equipment and need to change their clothes before leaving the workplace. Nevertheless, some asbestos fibers may still end up in their home if they are not careful enough. Their family members may inhale and ingest asbestos fibers if the worker brings the dangerous mineral home on their skin and hair. Moreover, if they need to wash their work clothes at home, their wives are at high risk of asbestos exposure, as they are usually the ones who do the laundry. In the unfortunate event that you shared a living space with a Glacier Park Inc. worker and developed a disease which may be the result of secondary asbestos exposure, please reach out to us, as our attorneys have been helping the family members of asbestos workers for over 25 years and will be able to tell you with certainty if you have a case. If you do, they will promptly begin working on your personal injury claim, which will be filed against the responsible company. While complex and tedious, the legal process requires minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to send your lawyer the employment records of your family member and your medical records, as solid evidence must accompany your case. In the end, you will recover the maximum compensation available from the responsible company, money which will also help you afford better healthcare and treatment for your disease.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
It is not uncommon for victims of workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to seek the compensation they deserve while they are alive, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. Nonetheless, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure, you can file a wrongful death claim with the assistance of a specialized attorney to recover fair compensation on their behalf. The only necessary documents are their employment and medical records, as well as their death certificate, which must clearly state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure, such as lung cancer or mesothelioma. Since 1990, we have been pursuing compensation for the surviving family members of asbestos victims and will gladly do the same for you. It is important to keep in mind, however, that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years from the moment of death in most states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.
