Secondary Exposure to Asbestos

Experienced Dallas Mesothelioma Attorney

Mesothelioma is a life-threatening form of cancer that develops as a result of asbestos exposure. Although nearly everyone has been exposed to asbestos at some point in their life, the majority of people who are diagnosed with mesothelioma were exposed to high levels of asbestos during their career—20 to 50 years prior to their mesothelioma diagnosis. However, secondary asbestos exposure has also been known to lead to this fatal disease.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, our Dallas mesothelioma lawyers at Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP, can help you identify the source of your exposure to asbestos and pursue the compensation your family will need to deal with medical treatment and other monetary damages associated with the aftermath of a mesothelioma diagnosis. Provide for your past and present medical costs by pursuing justice against those responsible.

We offer free consultations to offer legal guidance—request your free evaluation or call (214) 301-5007.

Secondary Asbestos Exposure & Your Family

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that forms in many commercial products. Asbestos particles are too microscopic to see with the naked eye. Therefore, many people would inhale asbestos-contaminated air without realizing the asbestos fibers were inhaled and attached to their lungs. In areas with high levels of asbestos contamination, workers would unknowingly bring asbestos into their home—either on their clothes, work equipment, or other materials. As a result, the worker's family members were also exposed to the dangerous asbestos particles and are at risk of developing mesothelioma.

Occupations at Risk

If your spouse, parent, or other household member was exposed to high levels of asbestos in the workplace, you may be at risk. Family members of construction workers, carpenters, shipyard workers, mechanics, factory workers, or workers in other high-risk occupations should discuss their loved one's work history with medical professionals. Your doctor's understanding of your exposure to asbestos—even if your asbestos exposure was second hand—will play a critical role in identifying medical concerns and early diagnosis of asbestos-related diseases, such as mesothelioma.

Contact an Experienced Mesothelioma Claims Lawyer

At Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP, we want to make sure that people who suffer from this disease have the resources they need for medical treatment, whether they need curative or palliative care. Due to the late diagnoses of mesothelioma cases, most treatment is centered on prolonging life expectancy or providing comfort. In any case, medical treatment is costly, and those who are responsible for asbestos exposure should be held liable for your treatment.
