Asbestos claims video

The use of asbestos in various industries was prevalent before the mid-1980s, although the dangers of asbestos were carefully covered up by many companies that were manufacturing or using asbestos products.

The correlation between prolonged asbestos exposure and a series of different types of lung diseases has been demonstrated by multiple studies within the past four decades. Asbestos claims are currently increasing in the U.S. due to the increasing number of industrial workers and veterans diagnosed with cancers caused by prolonged exposure to asbestos fibers.

Over 75 industries exposed workers and veterans to asbestos

Between 1920-1980 people who worked in an industrial workplace and in the military were in contact with asbestos. Years later many of these victims have developed serious, often fatal diseases, along with their family members who also got sick, from the asbestos fibers that their spouses were bringing home on their clothes and hair, leading to secondary exposure.

Although asbestos claims are unique to the person and situation, our specialists will devote the time and attention it takes to resolve your particular case. We have handled 233,565 cases that have taken us all over the country and recovered $2 billion for our clients.

We have a team of medical research experts, industrial hygienists, environmentalists, attorneys and staff that have worked solely on asbestos cases for over two decades.

Who is eligible for asbestos claims?

In order for us to file an asbestos trust fund claim, you must meet the following requirements:

  • You received an asbestos-related cancer diagnosis in the last 3 years
  • You were a veteran or a former industrial worker, who was employed and worked in one of the high-risk asbestos-exposure occupations
  • You are a family member of an industrial worker or veteran and suffered secondary asbestos exposure
  • You are a family member of an industrial worker or veteran who passed away due to asbestos exposure and did not file a claim during their lifetime; family members can also step in when the claim was already filed

Even if you have not yet developed an asbestos-related cancer, your risk is high as a former industrial worker or a veteran. We can file an asbestos claim with the trust funds after an accurate diagnosis and you can then obtain compensation. In addition to the asbestos trust fund claim, we help veterans obtain an approved VA claim as well through our process.

If you developed one of the following cancers as a result of occupational exposure, you are eligible for compensation. If you are too ill, a family member can help you with the legal process. In the unfortunate event that you pass away before recovering compensation, your surviving family members will receive compensation on your behalf.

If, however, you struggle with non-cancerous pleural diseases such as asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, pleural plaques, pleural effusion, diffuse pleural thickening, COPD (emphysema & chronic bronchitis), pleurisy, lung nodules, lung spots, asthma, pneumonitis, tuberculosis, rounded atelectasis or lung scarring, please seek a second or even a third opinion as the rate of misdiagnosis is very high among the victims of asbestos exposure.
