AC & S, Inc.

Workers exposed to asbestos

This company originally started as a subsidiary of the Armstrong Cork Company, named Armstrong Contracting and Supply. The name to AC & S was changed in 1969. The company’s main activities were insulation contracting and manufacturing building products. From 1957 to 1974, AC & S made products containing asbestos that endangered the lives of the people found on construction worksites, shipyards, and factories.

Claim Evaluation

AC & S, Inc. employees exposed to asbestos

Specializing in the manufacturing of insulation and cement, AC&S, Inc. had wittingly exposed workers, as well as plenty of people in the construction and shipbuilding industries, to deadly fibers for nearly two decades. As producing insulation and cement required astounding quantities of asbestos, it was only to be expected that former employees would start developing harrowing diseases as a consequence of exposure, which prompted AC&S, Inc. to file for bankruptcy protection in 2002. Up until that point, nearly 250,000 workers had filed personal injury lawsuits against the company. Nowadays, people who had a job at AC&S, Inc. which resulted in pulmonary disease or cancer can easily recover the compensation they are eligible for from the manufacturer’s asbestos trust fund, which was set up in 2008.

The occupations at the highest risk of developing a serious disease as a result of the asbestos exposure are:

Considering the fact that asbestos-related diseases may take a long time to develop, it's extremely important that anyone who has a history of asbestos exposure regularly monitor their health. In the interest of promoting the importance of early diagnosis, we are offering screenings free of charge for AC&S, Inc employees.

Asbestos related cancer eligible for filing a claim

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.

Lung Cancer Mesothelioma Throat Cancer Esophageal Cancer Bronchial Cancer Gastrointestinal Cancer Colorectal Cancer

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.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of AC & S, Inc. workers

In addition to compensating former workers who are currently struggling with terrible diseases as a result of the company’s sheer negligence, the AC&S, Inc. asbestos trust fund also provides financial help to their family members in the event of secondary asbestos exposure. Lack of appropriate safety practices in the workplace was responsible for the suffering of numerous innocent people, as employees would unknowingly expose their loved ones to the asbestos fibers they brought home on their clothes. When shaking out their husbands’ work clothes before laundering them, spouses would cause asbestos fibers to become airborne and inhalation was thereby unavoidable. However, this is only one example of how secondary asbestos exposure could occur.

If you shared a living space with a family member who was working at AC&S, Inc. and has a diagnosis that seems related to asbestos, our legal experts can help you determine whether your illness is the result of secondary asbestos exposure. Supposing that is the case, our skillful attorneys will subsequently assist you with claiming the compensation you deserve from the company’s asbestos trust fund. Unlike a lawsuit, filing a claim is a very simple process that requires minimal involvement on your part.
