Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Reeves Brothers Inc. workers
If you shared a house with a Reeves Brothers worker, you were most likely exposed to asbestos as well, although indirectly. This is known as secondary asbestos exposure. When a person breathes in or swallows fibers of asbestos from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure occurs. Because textile mill workers were not instructed to change their clothes at the end of their shift, they would carry home asbestos dust, unknowingly exposing their spouses and children. Secondary asbestos exposure would happen when the wives of male textile workers laundered their garments and also when the children of these employees greeted them upon returning home.
Over the years, asbestos fibers would accumulate in the bodies of family members, placing them at greater and greater risk of developing a disease as a consequence of secondary asbestos exposure. No amount of asbestos in the body is safe, despite safety limits existing. If you came to struggle with a disease that is linked to asbestos exposure and lived in the same house as a textile mill worker during the last century, you should contact our legal team, as we can help you recover the compensation you deserve for your unjust suffering.
