Exposure To Family Members

Pittsburgh Injury Attorneys Helping Family Members Exposed to Asbestos

In its natural and undisturbed forms, the threat of asbestos to human health is minimal. Similarly, asbestos-containing products such as a fireproof garment or pipe insulation also pose minimal risks so long as they remain undamaged.

But the fact remains that many of the products that contain asbestos are prone to damage or easily disturbed by friction that causes the asbestos fibers in them to become airborne. When this happens, the chances for harmful exposure are heightened.

If you lived or had significant contacts with a person who worked with asbestos products, and you have now been diagnosed with mesothelioma — don't hesitate to call or contact Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., for a free consultation today.

Our firm has been handling mesothelioma lawsuits on behalf of people in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and the Eastern United States since the early 1990s. In the process, our Pittsburgh mesothelioma lawyers have been able to help thousands of people obtain compensation for the harms that they have suffered as a result.

Asbestos in the Home

Among the cases our attorneys have handled, a relatively small number have involved people who were not directly exposed to asbestos through employment, but who instead had a family member or significant contacts with someone who worked around asbestos at their place of employment.

Unfortunately and unknowingly, workers often carried asbestos fibers with them everywhere they went afterward — thereby exposing spouses, children, family members, friends and significant others to the fibers as well.
