3 Examples of Indirect Exposure to Asbestos

Asbestos is known to be an extremely dangerous substance. As such, many people have taken precautions to eliminate the possibility of being exposed to asbestos. Unfortunately, people can be exposed to asbestos through indirect methods as well, causing them to unknowingly develop asbestos-related illnesses. However, if you have been wrongfully exposed to asbestos, you could be eligible to receive financial compensation to help pay for any costs that you incur as a result of your medical complications.

If you or someone you love has suffered from asbestos exposure, even indirectly, contact our qualified mesothelioma lawyers of Williams Hart today by calling us at 800-781-3955. We may be able to help you get compensation for your suffering and the costs related to your asbestos-related illness.

3 Specific Examples

There is a number of ways a person can be exposed to asbestos indirectly, but three specific examples of indirect exposure include:

  • A family member has asbestos fibers on his or her clothing/shoes.
  • A nearby building containing asbestos is being demolished, spreading fibers.
  • An animal has asbestos fibers on its fur and you pet the animal, later inhaling fibers off your body.

These are only three examples of the many possible ways that a person can be exposed to asbestos, but they can be even more frightening because they are indirect and unexpected. However, whether a person is exposed directly and indirectly to asbestos, they may face the same results – often very serious lung complications that could result in death.
