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.
