Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Sun Oil Co. workers
Secondary asbestos exposure occurs when a person breathes in or swallows asbestos fibers from indirect sources, such as the clothes, skin, and hair of a worker who handles the mineral directly or is often around it. During the last century, most oil refinery workers would come home covered in asbestos fibers, and their family members would greet them, inhaling and ingesting toxic fibers. These asbestos fibers would accumulate in their bodies, which now places these people at considerable risk of developing a disease as well.
If you are in this situation because you lived under the same roof as a Sun Oil Co. employee before 1980, when asbestos use was banned, we encourage you to give our experienced legal team a call, as we can help you recover compensation for your illness. Our attorneys, who specialize in toxic exposure, will file a claim for you after you send us the employment records of your family member and your medical records as evidence. Eventually, you will benefit from the largest compensation available for your diagnosis.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
If you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure, you can file a wrongful death claim to obtain money on their behalf. However, they must not have filed a claim for asbestos exposure themselves during their lifetime. This way, you will benefit from the compensation they would have used if they would have filed a claim. Our lawyers have over 25 years of experience in asbestos exposure cases and will efficiently prepare your claim for submission.
While the compensation you will receive after filing a wrongful death claim will not be as great as it would have been if the asbestos victim would have filed the claim themselves, it will still help you with the funeral expenses and past medical expenses of your loved one, for instance. Lastly, it is important to know that your involvement in the legal process will be minimal, as we are aware that people who have recently lost someone dear are going through a lot.
