Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Shook & Fletcher workers
Because insulators often had to cut and sand insulation to make it perfectly fit in various places, such as boilers, pipes, ducts, gaskets, and valves, they would inevitably release a lot of asbestos fibers in the air they would breathe. Furthermore, asbestos dust would end up on their clothes and, since they were not required to change at the end of the day, they brought toxic fibers home. While their wives would inhale and ingest asbestos when laundering the work clothes of their husbands, their children would usually come in contact with it when greeting their fathers upon returning home from work.
Over the years, the number of asbestos fibers in the bodies of family members would increase, placing these people at moderate risk of developing a disease as a consequence of secondary asbestos exposure. If you shared the same living space as a Shook & Fletcher Insulation Company and came to struggle with a disease that seems related to asbestos exposure, we encourage you to give our law firm a phone call, as we specialize in toxic exposure and will be able to recover the compensation you deserve for your distress.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
Sadly, many victims of asbestos exposure pass away without having benefited from the financial compensation they were entitled to. This happens either because the person dies shortly after they receive their diagnosis or because they fear a long and complex legal process. Nonetheless, if you are the surviving family member of a former Shook & Fletcher Insulation Company worker who had not taken legal action against the company, you can now file a wrongful death claim. Filing a wrongful death claim on behalf of a victim of asbestos exposure is easier than you probably imagine, as you only have to explain your situation in detail and provide us with some basic documents.
Our attorneys will carefully review your case to find out whether you qualify for filing a wrongful death claim. If you do, they will promptly begin working on it, and in the meantime, our legal experts will pull out additional evidence from our vast database to support your claim. You will eventually get the sum of money you are eligible for, which can help you with the funeral expenses or the past medical expenses of your departed loved one. Lastly, it is important to remember that asbestos exposure claims have a statute of limitations, which should make you contact our law firm as soon as possible so as not to lose your right to compensation.
