This week the Mesothelioma Compensation Center is sharing an American Cancer Society study that provides evidence for second hand exposure to asbestos. "Family members of people exposed to asbestos at work can also have an increased risk of developing mesothelioma because the workers can carry home asbestos fibers on their clothes." For attribution purposes please refer to the American Cancer Society's web site called: What are the risk factors for malignant mesothelioma From December 2013: http://www.cancer.org/cancer/malignantmesothelioma/detailedguide/malignant-mesothelioma-risk-factors
So why is second hand exposure to asbestos such a vital current issue for some victims of mesothelioma?
The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "Because the diagnosed victim of mesothelioma was not exposed to asbestos at work, they don't think they will ever be compensated. What they do not realize is one of these compensation claims can be just as valuable as a compensation claim that resulted from a worker being directly exposed to asbestos at a workplace." http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com
The Center explains that, “We want individuals exposed to second hand asbestos to know that compensation for this type of mesothelioma ranks in the highest bracket. The typical second hand mesothelioma victim never worked at a shipyard, oil refinery, chemical plant, manufacturing facility, as an auto repair specialist, or in the construction industry—a loved one did. We are honored to help a diagnosed victims of mesothelioma who had second hand exposure on a monthly basis. Usually the conversation starts with the adult son or daughter of the diagnosed victim asking how their mother could have mesothelioma? We instantly ask where their father/significant other worked and more time than not they worked in an industry known to use asbestos.
“We strongly encourage diagnosed victims of second hand exposure mesothelioma, or their family members, to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 so we can make certain the victim, or their family members get instant access to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma compensation attorneys." http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com
