Many housewives were exposed to asbestos while washing their husband's work clothes.

Few people are aware of the risks of second-hand exposure to asbestos, including housewives who breathed in the dust and fibers after washing the clothes of someone who worked directly with the deadly carcinogen.

It is common knowledge now that asbestos is a deadly substance that can cause asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma. Housewives are at risk because family members who were laborers, including carpenters, construction workers and shipbuilders, commonly tracked asbestos into the home on their shoes and work overalls.

Their wives and daughters who did the laundry breathed in the asbestos dust and fibers while laundering their workpants.

This type of exposure is known as second-hand exposure, and has resulted in many women developing asbestos related diseases.

Weitz & Luxenberg’s asbestos attorneys have represented several clients in cases of secondary exposure, including a case where a wife was diagnosed with mesothelioma after years of asbestos exposure simply from washing her husband’s work clothes.

We were able to secure her a settlement from over 20 defendants for several million dollars.
