Have You Inhabited the Same House as a United States Mineral Products Worker? If So, Your Health Might Also Be in Danger
The effects of secondary asbestos exposure, which takes place when a person breathes in or swallows airborne fibers without being near the source of contamination, are unfortunately the same as those of occupational exposure. Depending on how heavily and frequently you have been exposed to asbestos, you can develop any related disease, from asbestosis to mesothelioma. The most common ways secondary asbestos exposure would occur in the past were inhaling asbestos dust upon greeting the worker in question or doing their laundry. If you have a former United States Mineral Products employee in your family and experience one or more of the following symptoms, please seek medical attention immediately, as these are the tell-tale signs of lung disease: difficulty breathing, a chronic cough, chest pain, nail clubbing, fatigue, unintentional weight loss, trouble swallowing, loss of appetite.
In the unfortunate event you receive a diagnosis such as lung cancer, it is important to take legal action as soon as possible, as asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations which, if expires, will prevent you from recovering the compensation you are eligible for. The statute of limitations varies from state to state and only a specialized lawyer will be able to tell you which one applies to your case, as sometimes, it is not the one of your state of residence which is relevant. To benefit from quality legal assistance, please contact our attorneys, who have over 25 years of professional experience in asbestos litigation. They will thoroughly assess your situation and help you navigate the legal process, which requires minimal involvement on your part. Furthermore, you will constantly be kept up to date with regard to the progress of your case. Contact us now and claim the financial compensation you deserve!
