Working in these sites was not the only danger. Tiny airborne asbestos particles settled on the hair and clothes of many workers, which were carried home with them. Once these particles enter the home, they spread through the living area where they resettle on furniture, bedding, and clothing. Anyone entering the home is potentially at risk of developing mesothelioma. Consequently, cases of mesothelioma and asbestos-related conditions are frequently found in the families of those who worked in asbestos sites.
The dangers of asbestos were not left behind at the worksite. If you or your family has suffered because of residual asbestos exposure, you should seek legal counsel without delay. There's no need to suffer from the negligence of a short-sighted industry. The law limits how much time you have to file your claim, so hesitation can end your case before it begins. The financial security of your family is in your hands. Contact a lawyer today.
