Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Timmers Chevrolet workers
Occurring when a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure was very prevalent among the family members of Timmers Chevrolet workers during the last century. Since they were not required to wear any protective equipment when working with asbestos products, employees would often return home with toxic dust on their clothes. Thereby, their wives would be exposed to asbestos when washing up their work clothes, whereas their children would breathe in and swallow dangerous fibers when greeting their father upon coming back home from the job. Contrary to popular belief, secondary asbestos exposure can be as harmful as occupational asbestos exposure, since no amount of asbestos is safe for the human body. There are numerous family members of former asbestos workers who developed awful diseases after sharing the same living space with them.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
It is not uncommon for victims of workplace asbestos exposure to 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, our attorneys, who have been helping the surviving family members of asbestos exposure victims since 1990, will provide you with the legal assistance you need to file a wrongful death claim with Timmers Chevrolet so that you can recover compensation on behalf of your deceased loved one. While complex and tedious, the legal process will require minimal involvement on your part, as you will only have to send your attorney the employment records of your lost family member, their medical records and their death certificate, which must state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. Eventually, you will receive fair compensation on behalf of your family member. It is important, however, to know that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years from the moment of death in most states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.
