Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Picatinny Arsenal workers

Thereby, their wives would inhale and ingest asbestos while laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would be in direct contact with the dangerous mineral when greeting their fathers upon returning home from the job. If you developed a disease which you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm immediately and we will gladly help you with a free of charge case review.
