We also provide legal assistance to the families of Pacor Incorporated workers
Undeniably, most asbestos exposure took place in occupational settings throughout the better part of the last century. From shipyards to chemical plants, asbestos would be present in enormous amounts and the workers who were in charge of handling it rarely wore adequate equipment. Nevertheless, the workplace was not the only environment in which asbestos exposure would happen. Since industrial hygiene was almost non-existent, as asbestos was deemed safe by companies, workers would unwittingly bring home carcinogenic fibers on their clothes. Thereby, the health of family members was also at risk.
Secondary exposure, which resulted in approximately 10% of the asbestos victims in the U.S. today, occurs when one inhales or ingests toxic fibers from indirect sources. If you ever inhabited the same house as a Pacor Incorporated worker and currently struggle with a diagnosis such as lung cancer, COPD, or pulmonary fibrosis, please seek legal assistance immediately. You might have a case of secondary asbestos exposure and therefore be entitled to financial compensation. With nearly 30 years of professional experience, the specialized attorneys at Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. will help you recover the money you deserve from the company’s asbestos trust fund.
