Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of L&N Railroad workers
Chances are if you shared a living space with an L&N Railroad worker that you were a victim of secondary asbestos exposure. During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure would occur in the family members of asbestos workers by inhaling and ingesting the asbestos fibers present in their clothes, their skin, and their hair. Thus, the wives of workers would be exposed to asbestos while laundering their clothes, whereas the children would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers when greeting their fathers upon returning home, covered in asbestos dust. However, if you developed a disease as a result of secondary asbestos exposure, you are also eligible for compensation. With over 25 years of experience in pursuing asbestos exposure cases, our skillful attorneys will help you recover the compensation you deserve. The only documents you will need to provide are the employment records of your family member and your medical records, which will be used as evidence to support your asbestos claim. Nevertheless, it is important to take legal action as soon as possible, as asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 3 years in most states. You will eventually obtain the maximum compensation you qualify for with the legal assistance of our attorneys.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
Oftentimes, victims of occupational asbestos exposure fail to seek financial compensation for the disease they developed while they are alive. However, if you have a family member who passed away due to a disease caused by asbestos exposure, you can recover compensation on their behalf, a process with which our resourceful attorneys will help you. Following a thorough discussion during which you will need to describe the circumstances of asbestos exposure of your deceased loved one, our attorneys will promptly begin working on your case and subsequently file a wrongful death claim with L&N Railroad, which is bound to result in the financial compensation you deserve. It is important, however, to keep in mind 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 immediately.
