People who have a former Western MacArthur worker in their family might have undergone secondary asbestos exposure
While the vast majority of asbestos victims became ill as a consequence of occupational exposure, 10% of these people came to suffer from a disease following secondary exposure, which implies indirect contact with toxic fibers. For the better part of the last century, industrial hygiene within workplaces involving asbestos use was not given much thought, as company executives would insist exposure was absolutely safe. Consequently, asbestos was seen as mere “nuisance dust”. Employees were thereby not required to change clothes or shower at the end of the day, which led to asbestos fibers being brought home on their overalls, as well as on their skin and in their hair. Thus, any family member who was sharing the same dwelling with a Western MacArthur worker at the time is now at risk.

A lawyer who specializes in asbestos cases – such as those at Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. – will help you navigate the legal process and claim the compensation you deserve in the shortest time possible.
