Secondary asbestos exposure victims are also eligible for financial compensation from the Johns-Manville asbestos settlement trust
Inhabiting the same house as a Johns-Manville worker during the last century implied a high risk of exposure to carcinogenic fibers. Since people who handled asbestos directly in the facilities operated by the company throughout the country were not required to change their clothes when their shift ended, toxic fibers would inevitably wind up in the households of workers. This way, whoever was sharing the living space with the person in question would unwittingly breathe in or swallow asbestos fibers, which could later cause terrible damage to their internal organs. While the chances of developing a disease as a result of secondary exposure are lower than when direct contact with asbestos is involved, the risk is still considerable. It is estimated that up to 10% of those who now struggle with asbestos diseases underwent secondary exposure.
