Victims of secondary asbestos exposure need to take action in order to get compensated
As early as the 1920s, studies have shown there is a link between asbestos exposure and serious diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, or asbestosis. Despite that, manufacturers still chose to work with it, exposing their employees to huge health risks. Ingersoll-Rand is one of the companies who disregarded the warnings about asbestos effects. As a result, many of their former workers have filed lawsuits against them in the last years, on account of their debilitating health state as a result of asbestos exposure. Employees at the biggest risk of developing serious diseases are those who have worked not only in the manufacturing process but also in maintenance.
It often happened that workers would bring asbestos dust into their home, embedded in their clothes, thus exposing their family members as well. Secondary asbestos exposure can also lead to severe diseases and victims affected by it are also entitled to receiving compensation. If you develop a disease as a result of secondary exposure, contact us as soon as possible so we can review your case.
