Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Stockham Valves and Fittings workers
Occurring when a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure was very frequent among the family members of people who handled the dangerous mineral on the job during the last century. Since employees were not provided with any protective equipment when working with asbestos, they would inevitably bring home toxic fibers on their clothes, skin and hair. This way, their wives were in contact with asbestos when laundering their work clothes, whereas their children would breathe in and swallow asbestos fibers when greeting their father upon coming back from the job. In the regrettable event that you suffer from a disease you suspect is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, do not hesitate to contact our law firm, as we have been helping victims of asbestos exposure recover the compensation they deserve for over 25 years.

In the end, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your injury from the liable company, which will also help you afford superior healthcare and treatment.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
Oftentimes, people who were injured by 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, we strongly encourage you to file a wrongful death claim with the assistance of our skillful legal team. While the legal process is complex, it will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to provide your attorney with the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as with their death certificate, which must clearly state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. The rest of the necessary paperwork will be efficiently taken care of by our legal team, while you can focus on more important aspects. You will eventually receive fair compensation 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 from the moment of death in the majority of states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.
