Union Oil Worker Brings Asbestos Fibers Home on Clothing.
Before succumbing to the disease, she opted to file a lawsuit alleging the employers involved failed to warn her husband of the dangers of asbestos.
During the time her husband worked with asbestos, she laundered his work clothes, which allegedly contained asbestos fibers, twice weekly.
At age 74, she was diagnosed with mesothelioma and died about 10 months later after incurring thousands of dollars in medical expenses.
Union Oil workers are among those who have a high risk for exposure to asbestos in their occupation.
