Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of R&B Falcon Drilling workers
Chances are if you lived under the same roof as a family member who worked at R&B Falcon Drilling, you were also exposed to asbestos, although to a lesser extent. Secondary asbestos exposure was a frequent occurrence during the last century, as the wives of asbestos employees would have to launder their work clothes, while their children would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers when greeting their fathers upon returning home from work. Because they were not provided with the protective equipment they needed on the job, employees of R&B Falcon Drilling would come home covered in asbestos dust.

If you qualify for compensation, our skillful attorneys will begin working on your claim, which will be filed against R&B Falcon Drilling, as they are still in business at the moment.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
It is not uncommon for victims of occupational asbestos exposure to fail to seek financial compensation while they are alive, usually out of fear of a long and complicated legal process. Nevertheless, their surviving family members can file a wrongful death asbestos exposure claim on their behalf which, if it is taken care of by a lawyer whose main area of practice is toxic exposure, is bound to result in fair compensation. Thereby, in the unfortunate event that you lost a family member to a disease stemming from workplace asbestos exposure, we strongly encourage you to take legal action, as our attorneys, who specialize in toxic exposure cases, will gladly help you throughout the entire legal process. Even though the legal process is complex, you will only have to provide your lawyer with the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as with their death certificate, which must state that a disease caused by asbestos exposure claimed their life. It is worthy of note 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 so as not to lose your right to compensation.
