Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Pine Bluff Arsenal workers
If you lived under the same roof as a Pine Bluff Arsenal employee, chances are you were also exposed to asbestos, since workers were not provided with any protective equipment on the job and thereby brought home asbestos fibers on their clothes, skin and hair. This is known as secondary asbestos exposure and was a very common occurrence during the last century among the family members of people who handled asbestos in the workplace. Contrary to popular belief, secondary asbestos exposure can be as dangerous as occupational asbestos exposure, as no amount of asbestos is safe for the human body. Therefore, if you developed a disease you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact us, as our attorneys specialize in toxic exposure cases. After you thoroughly explain your situation to our legal team, they will determine if you are eligible for filing a claim to recover compensation for your injury. If you are, the only documents we will need from you are the employment records of your family member and your medical records, which will stand as evidence to support your case. In the end, with the assistance of our resourceful attorneys, you will receive the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to from Pine Bluff Arsenal.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
Oftentimes, victims of workplace asbestos exposure refuse to take legal action while they are still alive, usually out of fear of a long and complicated process. Nevertheless, if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure, our attorneys will help you file a wrongful death claim with Pine Bluff Arsenal to recover financial compensation on their behalf. You will only have to provide your attorney with their employment and medical records, as well as with their death certificate, which must clearly state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. Afterward, their legal team will efficiently handle all the remaining paperwork for you. In the end, you will receive fair compensation on behalf of your deceased loved one if you decide to work with our law firm. 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 as soon as possible.
