Texas family sues in second-hand mesothelima case

A Texas family has filed a lawsuit against Exxon Mobil Corp. and Royal Dutch Shell, claiming that a family member who washed the clothes of some of the men who worked for these companies contracted and died from mesothelioma.  This second-hand asbestos exposure lawsuit alleges that these companies did not warn their employees of the dangers associated with working in plants where they might be exposed to asbestos.  Recently, there have been a high amount of second-hand exposure asbestos lawsuits filed by those who have not been directly exposed to toxic asbestos fibers.  Those most affected by second-hand exposure to asbestos are wives who wash clothes that have been exposed to asbestos and children whose fathers' hold them after returning home from work where they are exposed. 

Mesothelioma lawsuits have continued to rise in recent years due to mesothelioma's latency period.  This number is expected to peak in 2010.  The first asbestos case was filed in 1929, and since then there have been over 600,000 similar lawsuits filed in the United States.
