Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Goodrich Corporation workers
Secondary asbestos exposure was a very common occurrence among the family members of Goodrich Corporation during the last century, as workers were not provided with any protective equipment against inhaling and ingesting asbestos fibers, and would thereby often return home with toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair. Their wives would breathe in and swallow asbestos when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would come in contact with the dangerous mineral when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. If you shared a living space with a family member who was working at this company at the time, you were most likely exposed to asbestos as well, which should make you vigilant if you notice a new onset of symptoms. In the unfortunate event that you developed a disease you believe is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact us and we will help you file a personal injury claim with Goodrich Corporation. Your involvement in the legal process will be minimal, as you will only have to provide your attorney with the employment records of your family member and with your medical records, documents that will stand as evidence to support your claim. In the end, you will receive fair compensation for your diagnosis if you decide to work with our experienced law firm, whose main area of practice is toxic exposure.
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. While very complex, the legal process will require minimal involvement on your part if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure and intend to recover compensation on their behalf. The only documents you will have to send your attorney are the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. Afterward, our resourceful legal team will carefully take care of the remaining necessary paperwork. You will eventually recover the maximum compensation available on behalf of your lost family member if you file a wrongful death asbestos exposure claim with our assistance. 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 the majority of states, which should prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.
