Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Marcal Paper workers
Occurring when a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure was very frequent among the family members of Marcal Paper during the last century, as employees were not provided with the protective equipment they needed when handling asbestos products, which would result in them returning home with toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair. Thereby, their wives would be exposed to asbestos when washing up their work clothes, whereas their children would breathe in and swallow dangerous fibers when greeting their fathers upon coming home from the job. If you received a diagnosis that you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our attorneys, who specialize in toxic exposure cases.
