We also provide legal assistance to family members injured by secondary asbestos exposure
Handling asbestos without protective equipment means inevitable exposure to carcinogenic fibers, which the human body cannot eliminate after inhalation or ingestion. Nevertheless, lack of appropriate clothes did not imply a health danger only for asbestos employees – their spouses and children were also at risk, as they would bring home toxic fibers on their garments every working day. Today, approximately 10% of those who struggle with terrible diseases such as lung cancer and mesothelioma fell ill as a consequence of secondary asbestos exposure, also known as domestic exposure. If you have a former Unarco worker in your family, it is important to remember that, if you ever develop a disease asbestos exposure is known for causing, you can file a claim to recover the compensation you deserve.
With over 25 years of experience in pursuing asbestos cases, the attorneys at Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. have dedicated their endeavors to helping victims of exposure ever since the beginning.

Filing a claim for compensation for victims of asbestos exposure
In the unfortunate event that you have already received a diagnosis related to workplace asbestos exposure, you should take legal action immediately. Asbestos victims are eligible for financial compensation, which our lawyers will gladly help you recover from the trust fund established by Unarco in 1990. Because the legal process involves no litigation, you will benefit from the money you deserve in a significantly shorter time. Our lawyers specialize in asbestos exposure cases and will do all in their power to obtain the maximum compensation you are entitled to from your former employer. Contacting a legal professional as soon as possible is crucial, as asbestos cases have a statute of limitations which, if expires, will prevent you from filing a personal injury claim.
