Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Standard Brake Shoe & Foundry Co. workers
Secondary asbestos exposure, which can be as dangerous as occupational asbestos exposure, was a very frequent occurrence among the family members of workers during the last century. Because they were not given any protective equipment when handling asbestos products, the employees of Standard Brake Shoe & Foundry Co. would often bring home toxic dust on their clothes, as well as on their skin and hair. Thereby, their wives would breathe in and swallow asbestos fibers when laundering their work clothes, while their children would be exposed to asbestos when greeting their father upon returning home from the job. In the regrettable event that you have a disease you suspect is the consequence of secondary asbestos exposure, please reach out to our attorneys and they will promptly review your case. If you are eligible for compensation, they will begin working on your case and eventually recover the maximum cum of money available for your diagnosis from the responsible company. The only documents you will need to send your attorney are the employment records of your family member and your medical records, documents which will be used as evidence to support your case. While the legal process is complex and tedious, it will require minimal involvement on your part, which will allow you to focus on more important aspects in the meantime, such as your health and treatment.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
It is not uncommon for people injured by workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to take legal action while they are alive, 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 with Standard Brake Shoe & Foundry Co. to recover fair compensation on their behalf. Your involvement in the legal process will be minimal, as you will only have to provide your lawyer with the employment records of your deceased loved one, their medical records and their death certificate, which must clearly state that they passed away due to a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. The rest of the paperwork will be efficiently taken care of by our skillful legal team. In the end, within several months to one year, you will receive the maximum compensation available on behalf of your lost family member if you choose to work with our law firm. It is important to know, however, that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years from the moment of death in the majority of states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.
