Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of M.W. Kellogg Company workers
Occurring when one inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure was very prevalent among the family members of asbestos workers during the last century. Because they were not provided with the protective equipment they needed, employees would often return home with asbestos dust on their clothes, skin and hair, which inevitably led to secondary asbestos exposure. While their wives would be exposed to asbestos when laundering their work clothes, their children would breathe in and swallow asbestos fibers when greeting their fathers upon coming back home from the job. This is how secondary asbestos exposure, which can be as dangerous as workplace asbestos exposure, would occur before 1980. In the unfortunate event that you developed a disease you believe is the consequence of secondary asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm immediately and we will promptly review your case. If you are eligible for compensation, our attorneys, who specialize in toxic exposure cases, will begin working on your claim, which will be filed with M.W. Kellogg Company. The only documents you will need to send your attorney are the employment records of your family member and your medical records, as solid evidence must accompany your claim. In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your injury from the liable company, which will be held accountable for their negligent actions.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
It is not uncommon for people who struggle with diseases as a result of workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to seek the compensation they deserve from the responsible company during their lifetime, 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 who had not taken legal action while they were alive, we will help you file a wrongful death claim so that you can recover fair compensation on their behalf. While complex and tedious, the legal process will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to provide your lawyer with the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as with their death certificate, which must state that they passed away due to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. It is important, however, to keep in mind 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 make taking legal action a priority for you. With the help of our skillful attorneys and their resourceful legal team, you are bound to obtain the most favorable outcome for your wrongful death asbestos exposure claim.
