Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of James River Corporation workers
If you had someone among your family members who was employed at James River Corporation and you lived in the same house, chances are you were secondarily exposed to asbestos. Secondary asbestos exposure occurs when you inhale or ingest asbestos from indirect sources. The primary source of asbestos exposure when it comes to secondary asbestos exposure was the work clothes of paper mill employees. Since they were not required to change their garments at the end of the day, they would bring home asbestos dust on their clothes, unintentionally exposing their families to the deadly mineral.
Usually, their wives would inhale asbestos fibers when laundering their clothes, whereas their children would come in contact with asbestos dust when greeting and hugging their fathers.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
Regrettably, many victims of occupational asbestos exposure pass away without having recovered the compensation they were eligible for. Nevertheless, if one of your family members passed away due to a disease caused by workplace asbestos exposure, you can now file a wrongful death claim on their behalf, which will result in financial compensation. Although the sum of money you will receive will not be as large as it would have been if your departed loved one had filed a claim, it may still prove useful for costs such as funeral expenses and past medical expenses.
To initiate the legal process, you just have to give our legal team a call, explain your situation, and send our experts the employment and medical records of your deceased family member along with their death certificate. These documents will help our attorneys determine whether you qualify for filing a wrongful death claim. If you do, they will rapidly begin working on it, while our legal experts will pull out additional evidence from our vast database to ensure the most favorable outcome for your case. In the end, you will benefit from the money you are entitled to if you choose to work with our law firm.
