Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Occidental Petroleum Corporation workers
During the last century, secondary asbestos exposure was a very frequent occurrence among the family members of asbestos workers. If you shared a living space with a family member who was, at the time, working for Occidental Petroleum Corporation, you were inevitably exposed to asbestos, since employees were not provided with the protective equipment they needed when handling asbestos. Thereby, workers would bring home asbestos fibers on their clothes, skin and hair. By coming in contact with a worker of Occidental Petroleum Corporation on a regular basis, secondary asbestos exposure was bound to occur. Their wives would be exposed to asbestos while laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers when greeting their fathers upon returning home from the job.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
It is not uncommon for victims of workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to seek compensation during their lifetime, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease that occurred as a result of occupational asbestos exposure, we can help you file a wrongful death claim so that you can recover the compensation you deserve on their behalf. Although complex and tedious, the legal process will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to send your attorney 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. Afterward, our resourceful legal team will carefully take care of the remaining aspects of your case. Eventually, you will receive fair compensation on behalf of your lost family member if you choose to work with our law firm. 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.
