Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Kentucky Textile Industries Inc. workers
Secondary asbestos exposure occurs when one inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources. It was very common among the family members of textile mill workers during the last century, as employees were not required to wear protective equipment when handling asbestos on the job and would thereby return home covered in toxic dust. While their wives were exposed to asbestos when laundering their work clothes, their children would come in contact with the dangerous mineral when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. If you struggle with a disease you believe is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do no hesitate to contact us, as we specialize in toxic exposure cases.

In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation you qualify for from the negligent company if you choose to work with our skillful legal team.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
It is not uncommon for people injured by workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to seek the compensation they deserve while they are alive, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure, our attorneys, who have over 25 years of experience in pursuing toxic exposure cases, will help you file a wrongful death claim, which will result in financial compensation on behalf of your lost family member. While complex and tedious, the legal process will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to provide your attorney with the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as with their death certificate, which must state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. The rest of the necessary paperwork will be efficiently taken care of by our legal team so that you can focus on more important aspects in the meantime. You will eventually receive fair compensation on behalf of your family member if you decide to work with our law firm. 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 the majority of states, which should prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.
