Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Martin Marietta Technologies Inc. workers
Before 1980, when the use of asbestos in the workplace was finally regulated by federal agencies, secondary asbestos exposure was a very common occurrence among the family members of asbestos workers, including Martin Marietta Technologies Inc. employees. Since they were not provided with any protective equipment when handling asbestos on the job, workers would often return home covered in toxic dust. Thereby, their wives would be exposed to asbestos when laundering their work clothes, while their children would breathe in and swallow asbestos fibers when greeting their fathers upon coming back home from the job. Contrary to popular belief, secondary asbestos exposure can be just as dangerous as occupational asbestos exposure and for this reason, numerous family members of former asbestos workers came to struggle with awful diseases over recent years. If you developed a disease you believe is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm for a free of charge case review. Our skillful attorneys will determine whether you qualify for compensation and if you do, you will only have to send your lawyer the employment records of your family member and your medical records, which will stand as evidence to support your claim. The rest of the paperwork will be efficiently handled by our experienced legal team so that you can focus on your health and treatment in the meantime. Eventually, you will obtain fair compensation for your injury if you choose to work with our law firm. It is worthy of note that our law firm works on a contingency fee basis, which means that you do not have to pay your attorney anything unless they recover financial compensation for you.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
It is not uncommon for victims of occupational 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 workplace asbestos exposure, you are entitled to compensation on their behalf, which our attorneys will gladly help you recover. Since 1990, we have been pursuing toxic exposure cases for victims of asbestos exposure and their surviving family members and will gladly help you, too. The only necessary documents are the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. These documents will be used as evidence for your wrongful death claim, which will be filed against Martin Marietta Technologies Inc. In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation you are eligible for from the responsible company. 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 most states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.
