Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Kansas City Power & Light Company workers
Secondary asbestos exposure occurs when a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources. Because they were not provided with adequate protective equipment on the job while handling asbestos products, workers would often return home with toxic fibers on their clothes, skin and hair, thereby exposing their family members. Their wives would mostly breathe in and swallow asbestos fibers when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would come in contact with the dangerous mineral when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. If you suffer from a disease you believe is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm to recover the financial compensation you deserve for your physical and emotional distress. After a thorough discussion with our legal team, during which you will be asked to describe the circumstances of your asbestos exposure, our attorneys will promptly begin preparing your claim for submission. Your claim must be accompanied by the employment records of your family member and by your medical records, documents that will be used as evidence to support it. Eventually, you will obtain fair compensation for your diagnosis if you decide to work with our experienced law firm.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
It is not uncommon for victims of workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to take legal action during their lifetime, usually out of fear of a long and complicated process. While the legal process is very complex, it will require minimal involvement on your part if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure and would like to recover compensation on their behalf. The only documents we will need from you are the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must clearly state that they passed away due to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. Afterward, the rest of the necessary paperwork will be efficiently handled by our skillful legal team. You will eventually receive the maximum compensation available on behalf of your lost family member if you choose to work with our knowledgeable legal team. It is important to keep in mind, however, that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years from the moment of death in most states, which should prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.
