Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Picattiny Arsenal workers
Chances are, if you lived under the same roof as a Picattiny Arsenal worker, you were also exposed to asbestos. Secondary asbestos exposure was a frequent occurrence during the last century, as workers were not provided with the protective equipment they needed while handling asbestos, which resulted in them returning home covered in asbestos dust. 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. After a thorough discussion with our attorneys and their legal specialists, you will know with certainty whether you have a case. If you qualify for compensation for secondary asbestos exposure, our attorneys, who specialize in toxic exposure cases, will begin preparing your claim with Picattiny Arsenal. Depending on the severity of your diagnosis, you will receive the financial compensation you deserve within 3 months to one year. Finally, you should know that our law firm works on a contingency fee basis, which means that you do not have to pay our attorneys anything unless they obtain compensation for you.
