Secondary asbestos exposure is a serious risk for the family members of J.T. Thorpe workers
People who lived under the same roof as a J.T. Thorpe worker during the last century, especially for a long period of time, also have a considerable risk of developing a disease. As fibers of asbestos are microscopic, they could have easily been brought home by workers on their clothes, as well as in their hair and on their skin. A common scenario of secondary asbestos exposure would involve children greeting their father upon returning home from work and wives laundering the clothes their husbands wore on the job. While the probability of being afflicted with a disease as a result of indirect asbestos exposure is lower, numerous women and young adults who have never handled asbestos themselves come to suffer from terrible diseases every year in the U.S.
The victims of secondary asbestos exposure have the right to take legal action as well. If you have a diagnosis such as lung cancer, pulmonary fibrosis, COPD, or mesothelioma and also have a family member who used to work at J.T.
