Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of McDonnell Douglas Manufacturing workers
If you shared a living space with a family member who was employed at McDonnell Douglas Manufacturing before 1980, you were most likely exposed to asbestos as well. Since they were not required to wear protective equipment when handling asbestos components, workers would often bring home toxic fibers on their clothes, skin and hair, which inevitably led to secondary asbestos exposure among their family members. While their wives would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers when laundering their work clothes, their children would be exposed to the dangerous mineral when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. In the regrettable event that you developed a disease you believe is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm and we will thoroughly review your case. If you are eligible for compensation, our resourceful attorneys will file a claim with McDonnell Douglass Manufacturing to recover the compensation you deserve for your physical and emotional suffering. You will only have to send your attorney the employment records of your family member and your medical records, documents that will stand as evidence to support your claim. The rest of the paperwork will be efficiently taken care of by our legal team, so your involvement in the process will be minimal. You will eventually recover fair compensation for your diagnosis from the company at fault.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
It is not uncommon for people injured by workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to seek the compensation they deserve while they are still alive, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm and we will help you file a wrongful death claim with the responsible company. While complex and tedious, the legal 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 their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. You will eventually recover the maximum compensation available on their behalf if you decide to work with our legal team. 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 the majority of states, which should prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.
