The simplest and seemingly innocent things such as hugging children after a long day at work or wives washing clothes can lead to adult-onset diseases for spouses and children of laborers, mechanics, builders, plumbers, roofers and maintenance workers, according to a study conducted by a the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
Microscopic contaminants cling to woven fabrics and people who work regularly with hazardous substances may unknowingly transport asbestos back home on their clothing. As a spouse or child of a worker who was exposed to asbestos in the workplace, you may be entitled to compensation for the injuries you sustain as a result of the exposure.
If you or someone you love believe that you have been exposed to take home asbestos, speak with a personal injury attorney as soon as you are diagnosed with an illness. An asbestos attorney in New Jersey or Pennsylvania can help if you are diagnosed with any of the following diseases:
