Victims of secondary asbestos exposure need to take action in order to get compensated
Although asbestos use was regulated in 1980, the risk of its exposure was well known ever since 1920, when numerous studies have linked it to serious respiratory diseases and some forms of cancer. Manufacturers using it had the obligation to warn their workers of the health risks they were subjected to. Employees at J.H France Refractories have been directly exposed to asbestos through the process of manufacturing their products. Family members may also be at risk because workers could have brought asbestos fibers into their homes on their clothing. Individuals with the biggest risk of developing asbestos-related diseases are those who worked in manufacturing, construction, or maintenance.
It often happened that workers would bring home microscopic dust embedded in their clothes, contaminating the home environment and exposing their family members too. If your health has been affected by secondary exposure, you are entitled to receiving compensation too. Contact us as soon as possible in order to review your case.
