Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of H.B. Zachry Construction workers
During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure, which occurs when a person inhales or ingests toxic fibers from indirect sources, was very common among the family members of H.B. Zachry Construction workers. Since employees were not required to wear adequate protective equipment when handling asbestos on the job, they would often bring asbestos dust home on their clothes, skin and hair. Their wives would thereby be exposed to asbestos when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would breathe in and swallow toxic fibers when greeting their father upon returning home from the job.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
Oftentimes, victims of workplace asbestos exposure refuse to take legal action during their lifetime, usually out of fear of a long and complicated process. While the legal process is very complex, your involvement will be minimal if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure and want to recover compensation on their behalf. All you have to do is thoroughly explain your situation to our legal team and provide your attorney with the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as with their death certificate, which must state that they passed away due to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. The remaining necessary paperwork will be efficiently taken care of by our legal team. You will eventually receive the maximum compensation available on behalf of your lost family member 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 as soon as possible.
