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.
