Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Steel City Products Inc. workers
Occurring when a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure can be as dangerous as occupational asbestos exposure, since no amount of asbestos is safe for the human body. During the last century, it was very common among the family members of Steel City Products Inc. workers, as they would often return home with toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair. While their wives would breathe in and swallow asbestos fibers when washing up their work clothes, their children would come in contact with the dangerous mineral when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. If you struggle with a disease you suspect is the consequence of secondary asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm and, after a thorough discussion, we will determine whether you are eligible for compensation. In the fortunate event that you are, the only documents you will have to provide your attorney with are the employment records of your family member who worked for Steel City Products Inc. and your medical records, which will be used as evidence to support your claim. You will eventually receive the maximum compensation available for your diagnosis from the liable company if you decide to work with our law firm, money that will also help you afford better healthcare and treatment.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
It is not uncommon for a victim of workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to take legal action during their lifetime, usually out of fear of a long and complicated process. While the legal process is very complex, it will require minimal involvement on your part if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure and would like to recover compensation on their behalf. You will only have to send our legal team the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as 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 handled by our law firm. Our attorneys, who have been pursuing toxic exposure cases since 1990, will file a wrongful death claim with the liable company on behalf of your lost family member, which will eventually result in fair compensation. It is important to keep in mind, 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 prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.
