Secondhand Asbestos Exposure, Or Household / Indirect Exposure To Asbestos, Would Happen When Child Greeted Father Or When Wife Washed The Worker’s Dusty Clothes
Family members of North Carolina workers may have had so-called secondhand asbestos exposure from common household activities; for example:
- A wife washing the worker’s clothing; or, even more unexpectedly,
- The children giving a welcome-home hug each day to their father while he was still in his work clothes laden with asbestos dust.
Often times it can be determined how the asbestos exposure during childhood happened and, in turn, an asbestos lawsuit for legal compensation can be filed on behalf of the mesothelioma victim or his surviving family.
