Did you bring asbestos home from the job? Consider a free lawsuit review if it caused health effects.
Workers can inadvertently carry hazardous materials home from work on their work clothes, skin, hair, tools, and in their vehicles. As a result, families of these workers have been exposed to hazardous substances and have developed various health effects.
Health effects have also occurred when the home and the workplace are not distinct--such as on farms or in homes that involve cottage industries.
For some contaminants, there are other potential sources of home contamination such as air and water pollution and deteriorating lead paint in the home.
Only a few of the studies found in the literature used epidemiologic methods to estimate the relative risks of health effects from the contaminant transported home by the worker independent of health risks due to other sources of the contaminant in the home.
More and more is being uncovered about the full range of health effects or the extent to which they occur as a result of workers' home contamination.
In the past, there were few information systems to enable tracking of illnesses and health conditions resulting from these circumstances. This, however, is changing, as more and more people are diagnosed properly and come forward to seek justice.
Many people have come forward to say their work environment led to a diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
