Secondary Asbestos Exposure: What You Can Do About It
Nationwide Attorneys For Family Members With Mesothelioma
While many are aware of the dangers posed by the widespread use of asbestos in American industries during the 20th century and the exposure risk for workers, few people realize the dangers of secondary exposure.
Even the simple act of taking the family car to work or bringing contaminated work clothes home to be washed can expose family members, friends and others to asbestos. Secondary exposure poses the same risks as primary exposure, including asbestos lung cancer and mesothelioma.
If your family has been hurt as a result of secondary exposure, The Gori Law Firm can help. For a free case evaluation with an experienced asbestos litigation attorney, call us toll free at 888-362-6890 or contact us online.
Secondary exposure is particularly a problem for the family members of high-risk workers such as:
- Shipyard employees
- Plumbers and pipefitters
- Railroad workers
- Refinery workers
- Chemical plant employees
- Foundry workers
In a situation involving two high-risk workers who share a dwelling, it is possible for a case to involve primary and secondary exposure.
