We are pleased to announce the launch of our new website Secondhand Mesothelioma, located at www.secondhandmesothelioma.com. This website was created as part of our continued service to the community.
Secondhand Mesothelioma is a user-friendly website offering valuable legal information for individuals diagnosed with mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. Secondary asbestos exposure, also known as home exposure or para-occupational exposure, occurs as an indirect result of working with or around asbestos materials. Home exposure generally occurs when wives and children come into close contact with their husbands, fathers and brothers who were covered in asbestos-laden dust from the workplace. Because of non-existent or inadequate warnings on a variety of asbestos-containing materials used in many different industries, many individuals were exposed to asbestos prior to the late 1970’s.
This website offers information regarding asbestos exposure through contact with a family member who had direct daily exposure to asbestos-containing materials, including fireproofing, insulation materials, joint compound (mud), floor tiles, ceiling tiles and roofing materials. Secondhand Mesothelioma also offers valuable technical and legal information regarding exposure to asbestos and the development of asbestos-related diseases, as well as information on how to seek legal redress in the New York State for asbestos-related injuries.
