The spouses and children of T. H. Agriculture and Nutrition employees might have also been exposed to asbestos
While the dangers of asbestos exposure had been suggested by medical studies ever since the end of the 20th century, the companies which came to employ this naturally occurring mineral after 1900 chose to keep the awful health consequences of asbestos inhalation and ingestion a secret from both their workers and the general population. Despite the increasing number of researchers who were discovering more and more accurate information concerning the diseases asbestos exposure could cause, the higher-ups went to incredible lengths to minimize or hide the results of such studies. Accordingly, not only the health of millions of employees had been endangered for nearly five decades, but also the health of their loved ones, whom they would return to after work covered with asbestos fibers.
Also known as domestic exposure, secondary exposure pertains to a person breathing in or swallowing asbestos fibers without being in close proximity to the source of pollution, namely industrial settings. It is estimated that 10% of the people who currently struggle with diseases such as asbestosis and mesothelioma fell ill due to secondary asbestos exposure. Similarly to workers injured by asbestos, victims of secondary exposure can recover compensation from the trust fund of T. H. Agriculture and Nutrition with the help of a specialized lawyer. Regardless of the severity of your diagnosis, we encourage you to take action as soon as possible, as asbestos cases – being personal injury cases per se – have a statute of limitations which, if expires, will prevent you from claiming the money you deserve. Please contact us today and we will gladly dedicate our endeavors to pursuing your case.
