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.

Over 300,000 AC&S, Inc. Workers Have Been Injured by Occupational Asbestos Exposure Hitherto

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.

If you worked at AC&S, Inc. between 1957 and 1974, your health might also be at stake. Since they have a latency period of 10 to 50 years, asbestos-related diseases may occur at any point during your life and unfortunately, the risk does not decrease over time. We strongly advise you to pay close attention to your health and undergo periodical medical examinations, which will help you avoid late detection in the regrettable event you develop a disease. In the hope of preventing tardy diagnosis, our specialists provide screenings free of charge to former AC&S, Inc. employees who were exposed to asbestos in the workplace.

We Also Provide Quality Legal Assistance to Family Members of AC&S, Inc. Workers Affected by Secondary Asbestos Exposure

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.
