Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the families of United Land Corporation of America workers
Occurring when one would inhale or ingest asbestos fibers from indirect sources, secondary asbestos exposure would happen quite often during the last century in the families of asbestos workers. Because the giant asbestos corporations were doing all in their power to cover up the dangers of asbestos exposure, employees would not be instructed to wear protective gear on the job. This led to workers bringing home asbestos dust on their clothes, skin, and hair. When their wives would launder their work garments, they would be exposed to the carcinogenic mineral, as they would first shake out the clothes.
If you have a disease as a consequence of secondary asbestos exposure, you should take legal action against the former employer of your family member, as you are also entitled to financial compensation. With nearly 30 years of experience, our law firm will help you file a claim, which will result in the greatest sum of money you are eligible for, depending on the severity of your diagnosis. All we need from you are a description of your situation with as many details as possible and a series of documents, such as the employment records of your family member and your medical records.
Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members
Sadly, many victims of asbestos exposure pass away before receiving the financial compensation they are entitled to from their former employer, which is indirectly responsible for their demise. In these cases, their surviving family members can now choose to file a wrongful death claim, which will result in a sum of money that can be helpful for covering the cost of the funeral, for instance. While you will receive less money if you file a wrongful death claim than if the asbestos victim would have received had they filed it, it is important to take legal action. By taking legal action, you will also keep the company liable for their past negligent actions in addition to receiving some money.
