Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Marathon Oil Corporation workers
If you lived under the same roof as a family member who was working for Marathon Oil Corporation, you were most likely exposed to asbestos as well, since employees would handle asbestos on the job without the protective equipment they needed. Consequently, secondary exposure occurred in their family members. While their wives would be exposed to asbestos when laundering their work clothes, their children would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers from their clothes, skin and hair when greeting their fathers upon returning home from work. We strongly encourage you to contact our law firm if you developed a disease which you suspect is the consequence of secondary asbestos exposure, such a lung cancer or mesothelioma. After you thoroughly explain your situation to our attorneys, who have been helping the family members of asbestos victims since 1990, you will have to provide them with the employment records of your family member, as well as with your medical records, documents which will stand as evidence in your claim. The claim will also be filed with Marathon Oil Corporation and will eventually result in the maximum compensation you qualify for if you choose to work with our attorneys. It is important to know that our law firm works on a contingency fee basis, which means that you will not have to pay your lawyer anything unless they recover compensation for you.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
Oftentimes, people who struggle with a disease caused by workplace asbestos exposure are reluctant to take legal action and recover the compensation they deserve for their physical and emotional suffering. Thereby, numerous asbestos victims pass away without having obtained the compensation they were eligible for. Nevertheless, their surviving family members can seek financial compensation on their behalf with the assistance of a lawyer who specializes in toxic exposure cases. By filing a claim with Marathon Oil Corporation, you are bound to receive the maximum compensation you qualify for on behalf of your deceased loved one. The only documents you will have to send your attorney are the employment and medical records of your family member, as well as their death certificate, which must state that they lost their life as a result of a disease stemming from occupational asbestos exposure. However, you should know that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of only 2 years from the moment of death in the majority of states, which should determine you to take legal action as soon as possible.
