Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Tropicana Products, Inc. workers
Occurring when a person breathes in or swallows asbestos fibers from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure was quite common during the last century, as workers who came in contact with the mineral would bring home toxic fibers on their clothes, as well as on their skin, hair, and shoes. By greeting the employee and laundering their work clothes, family members could easily inhale or ingest asbestos fibers. Over the years, asbestos fibers would accumulate inside their bodies, endangering their health.

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 who had not sought compensation during their lifetime, you can file a wrongful death claim on their behalf. The only requirements are that they must have passed away due to a disease caused by workplace asbestos exposure, they must not have filed a claim for compensation while they were alive, and you must file the claim within the statute of limitations. The legal process of filing a wrongful death claim is quite similar to that of filing a regular asbestos exposure claim.
All we will need from you are the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate. We will carefully review your case to see if you meet the criteria and if you do, our resourceful attorneys will begin preparing the claim for submission. A few months afterward, you will get the compensation you deserve on behalf of your departed family member. Nonetheless, you should be aware that these claims have a statute of limitations of 2 years in most states, which is why we suggest you reach out to us as soon as possible.
