Secondary exposure to asbestos results in woman’s mesothelioma death

Secondary exposure to asbestos primarily occurs within the homes of families who have either had a husband or father that worked in an industry where asbestos was used.

In these situations, the husband or father would come home after work wearing work clothes contaminated with asbestos fibers, potentially exposing others in the home.

Please know, the personal injury law firm of Weitz & Luxenberg has protected the legal rights of workers since 1986. And in that time the firm's mesothelioma lawyers have won several billion dollars in verdicts and settlements for clients injured by asbestos.

Secondary exposure often affects women

October 13, 2009 - Some of the common work locations for direct and indirect asbestos exposure, especially for men, have included the construction, shipyard, power plant, chemical plant and automotive industries.

Indirect cases of asbestos exposure, known as "secondary exposure," have affected the lives of women, as well.

A case of secondary asbestos exposure reports that a woman named Linda Sinnett, who passed away from peritoneal mesothelioma in July, is believed to have suffered secondary asbestos exposure from her father’s work clothes.

Most cases of peritoneal mesothelioma result from ingesting asbestos fibers, and it is suspected that the fibers from her father’s work clothes may have come in contact with the food preparation areas in the kitchen, which was near the laundry room.

Mrs. Sinnett’s husband, John Sinnett, was more than surprised when he learned of his wife’s condition, since she had never directly worked with asbestos.

When speaking of his wife, Mr. Sinnett said, “She was full of spirit. Linda was like the boxer Rocky. If the cancer knocked her down she would get up again and fight back. She was a loving woman who was very close to her family.”
