Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Shell Oil Refinery workers
Occurring when a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure was very common among the family members of the people who worked in the oil refining industry during the last century. Since they were not required to wear any protective equipment on the job, they would often bring home asbestos dust on their clothes, skin and hair. While their wives would breathe in and swallow asbestos when laundering their work clothes, their children would be exposed to the dangerous mineral when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
Oftentimes, victims of workplace asbestos exposure refuse to take legal action during their lifetime, 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 to recover compensation on their behalf. Although the legal process is very complex and tedious, your involvement will be minimal, as 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 clearly state that they passed away due to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. The rest of the necessary paperwork will be efficiently taken care of by our resourceful legal team. You will eventually receive the maximum compensation available on behalf of your lost family member if you decide to work with our law firm. It is important to keep in mind, however, that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years in the majority of states, which should prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.
