Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of U.S. Gypsum Company workers
Taking place when family members would unwittingly inhale or ingest toxic fibers from the clothes of asbestos workers, secondary exposure was a common occurrence in the households of employees who regularly handled this carcinogenic mineral on the job. Over recent decades, numerous people who have a former U.S. Gypsum Company employee in their families have been diagnosed with the same diseases occupational asbestos exposure is notorious for, namely pulmonary disease and a wide range of cancers. It is important to know that, if you lived under the same roof as a U.S. Gypsum Company worker and suffer from such a disease, you might be eligible for compensation from the asbestos trust fund set up by the company in 2006.
