Secondary Asbestos Exposure, a Serious Concern for the Spouses and Children of Former Raybestos Employees
People who inhabited the same living space as a Raybestos worker while the company was using asbestos are now at high risk for developing terrible diseases such as asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, and lung cancer. Since asbestos companies were awfully lacking when it came to industrial hygiene, workers would inevitably bring home asbestos fibers on their clothes, which would later be inhaled or ingested by whoever was in proximity. This route of exposure is often referred to as secondary asbestos exposure, as those who are subjected to it do not come in direct contact with the source of contamination.
If you have a diagnosis of asbestosis, lung cancer, COPD, mesothelioma, or any other disease correlated with asbestos exposure and also lived with a family member who, at the time, was employed at Raybestos, please contact Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. at your earliest convenience. We will promptly put you in touch with one of our specialized attorneys, who will carefully evaluate your case and help you recover the compensation you deserve from the company’s asbestos trust fund, which also provides money to individuals hurt by secondary exposure. Since Raybestos has a trust fund, the legal process does not involve litigation and is usually completed within six months.
