Asbestos cancer found in steel workers, as well as family members exposed to dusty fibers on their clothing
Steel workers and family members with asbestos cancer have legal options. If you were diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer from asbestos, we may be able to help.
In recent news, the family of a woman who died of cancer as a result of asbestos was exposed to the deadly dust while washing the clothing of her father, a steel worker.
The woman was 43 when she died from the asbestos cancer mesothelioma.
The Texas mother left an 18-year-old daughter, a 16-year-old son and a husband of 23 years.
She recalled being exposed to asbestos second-hand, through contact with clothing worn by her father while he worked at a steel company.
Her father, who died in 1980, aged 56, worked as a crane driver in a steel plant from 1956 to 1980.
Before she died, she remembered her father coming home from work wearing dusty clothing when she was a child. She also remembered helping with the laundry which included her father's work clothes.
Many people who washed the work clothes of someone who worked with asbestos have come forward to say their home environment led to a secondary-exposure diagnosis of mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer from asbestos.
