Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of W.R. Grace workers
While on-the-job asbestos exposure is accountable for the vast majority of the 15,000 deaths which occur every year in the U.S. due to mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis, over 8% of asbestos victims become ill as a consequence of secondary asbestos exposure. By inhaling some of the carcinogenic fibers a loved one would often carry home on their work clothes, numerous people inadvertently put their health at stake. Regrettably, a considerable portion of those who underwent secondary asbestos exposure, either by interacting with a W.R. Grace employee who just returned home from the job or by laundering their work clothes, have subsequently been diagnosed with severe diseases which often ended up claiming their lives.
Having a former W.R. Grace worker in your family places you at high risk for asbestos-related diseases, whose most important particularity in this context is their long latency period. Therefore, if you have a type of pulmonary disease or a form of cancer that might be related to asbestos, as well as a family member who worked at W.R. Grace before 1980, you are very likely a victim of secondary exposure. With nearly three decades of experience in asbestos litigation, our lawyers are here to help you recover the financial compensation you deserve from the company’s asbestos trust fund. Since there is a statute of limitations effective for asbestos exposure cases, we strongly encourage you to contact us at your earliest convenience so as to ensure your asbestos claim is submitted on time.
