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.

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 which occurred at AC & S, Inc. are factory workers, pipefitters, insulators, and ship servicemen. However, veterans may also have also been exposed to asbestos products manufactured by AC & S, Inc., particularly those who served in the U.S. Navy. In addition to insulation, these were the most common asbestos products manufactured by AC & S, Inc. during the last century.

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 have a diagnosis which 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 skilful 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 which requires minimal involvement on your part. For additional information, please feel free to contact Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. and we will gladly come to your aid.
