Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Kerr-McGee workers
During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure was a very common occurrence among the family members of people who were regularly handling the toxic mineral on the job. Because they were not provided with adequate protective equipment to prevent them from inhaling and ingesting asbestos fibers from the air, they would often return home with toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair. Consequently, their wives were exposed to asbestos when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would come in contact with asbestos when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
Oftentimes, people who were injured by workplace asbestos exposure refuse to seek the financial compensation they deserve from the liable company 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 asbestos exposure, we will help you file a wrongful death claim to recover compensation on their behalf. While complex and tedious, the 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 clearly state that they passed away due to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. You will eventually receive the maximum compensation you qualify for on behalf of your lost family members if you decide to work with our legal team. It is important, however, to know 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.
