Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the families of Mississippi Chemical Corporation workers
Sadly, the family members of chemical workers were at risk of secondary asbestos exposure during the last century, as the employees would often bring home toxic fibers on their clothes, shoes, hair, and skin. Because major companies were striving to hide the negative health effects of asbestos exposure, people who handled the mineral on the job did not have to wear protective equipment against inhaling and ingesting asbestos fibers. They were not required to change their work clothes when their shift ended either. As a result, their wives would usually be exposed to asbestos when washing their work clothes, while their children would breathe in and swallow asbestos fibers when greeting their fathers upon returning home.
If you lived with a Mississippi Chemical Corporation worker in the same house and have recently been diagnosed with a disease that has a link to asbestos exposure, you should contact our law firm, as we have what it takes to help you file a claim to recover the financial compensation you deserve for your distress. The first step is to call us, explain your situation, and send basic documents to our legal experts. If we find that you are entitled to compensation, our attorneys will promptly begin working on your claim, and you will eventually get the sum of money you are entitled to from the liable company. However, you should remember that there is a statute of limitations, so you should take action as soon as you receive your diagnosis.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
In many cases, victims of occupational asbestos exposure refuse or fail to seek compensation while they are alive, whether because they pass away soon after they receive their diagnosis or because they believe that the legal process will be too complex and time-consuming. If you lost a loved one to a disease caused by workplace asbestos exposure and they had not filed a claim during their life, you can opt to file a wrongful death claim on their behalf. It will result in a significant sum of money that you can use to cover up costs such as their funeral expenses.
If you decide to file a wrongful death claim, you will first have to call our legal team, explain your situation, and subsequently send us the employment and medical records of your departed family member and their death certificate. We will review your case, and if we deem you eligible to file the claim, our lawyers will quickly start preparing it for submission. The legal process will entail minimal participation on your part, which will allow you to take care of more urgent matters. Eventually, you will benefit from the compensation you are entitled to on behalf of your deceased loved one.
