Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Pan-Am Southern Corp. workers
Chances are, if you shared a living space with a family member who was working for Pan-Am Southern Corp. during the last century, you were also exposed to asbestos, though to a lesser degree. Nonetheless, secondary asbestos exposure, which was a frequent occurrence among the family members of asbestos workers, can be as dangerous as occupational asbestos exposure, since no amount of asbestos is safe for the human body. It would occur when wives would launder the work clothes of their husbands, as well as when children would greet their fathers upon returning home from the job, often covered in asbestos dust. If you suffer from a disease you believe is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, we strongly encourage you to contact our law firm, as we specialize in toxic exposure cases. After a thorough case review, our attorneys will determine if you are eligible for filing a claim. If you are, they will promptly begin working on it, but before, you will have to send our legal team the employment records of your family member and your medical records, which will stand as evidence in your claim. These are the only documents you will have to provide our law firm with, as the rest of the paperwork will be efficiently handled by our legal team. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation you qualify for from the liable company, which highly depends on your diagnosis.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
In the unfortunate event that you lost a family member to a disease caused by workplace 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 the compensation you are entitled to on their behalf. Since 1990, our attorneys have been helping the surviving family members of asbestos victims recover the compensation they deserved and will gladly provide you with quality legal assistance and representation, too. By filing a wrongful death claim, not only will you obtain the financial compensation you deserve, but you will also hold accountable the liable company for their negligent actions. While the legal process is very complex, your involvement will be minimal, as you will only have to send your lawyer the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must state that they lost their life to a disease caused by asbestos exposure. Afterward, the remaining legal aspects will be efficiently taken care of by our law firm. In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation you are eligible for from Pan-Am Southern Corp. It is important to know, however, that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years from the moment of death in most states, which should prompt you to take legal action immediately.
