A & I Corporation

Workers exposed to asbestos

Asbestos and Insulation Corporation (A&I) was, as the name indicates, a manufacturer and distributor of insulation products that made intensive use of asbestos, a harmful mineral that causes or enhances a variety of medical conditions. As a consequence of numerous lawsuits from former employees, A&I was forced to file for bankruptcy and created an asbestos trust fund for its former employees.

Claim Evaluation

A & I employees exposed to asbestos

Specializing in the manufacturing of insulation, A & I (Asbestos and Insulation Corporation) would include tremendous amounts of asbestos in their products, as the mineral has remarkable fireproofing properties. Over the course of the last century, more than 11 million people were subjected to asbestos exposure, among whom numerous A & I Corporation workers. This led to a higher prevalence of asbestosis and mesothelioma, as well as lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure, throughout the U.S. after 1980, and up to 15,000 people still develop these illnesses every year in the country.

The occupations at the highest risk of developing a serious disease as a result of the asbestos exposure that occurred at A & I are:

Despite having prior knowledge about the dangers of asbestos exposure, company executives chose to keep people in the dark for their own financial gain. As a result, it is only now that companies that employed asbestos several decades ago are being held liable for their unethical actions.

Victims of secondary asbestos exposure can also recover compensation for their injuries

The majority of asbestos workers, including those at A & I Corporation, were not provided with appropriate protective equipment on the job, which was the main catalyst for secondary asbestos exposure. Since employees would return home covered with asbestos dust, it is not difficult to imagine how their family members were exposed to this hazardous mineral. Women would be at the highest risk for secondary exposure, as it was usually men who worked in industrial settings involving asbestos. By shaking out the work clothes before doing the laundry, they would make asbestos fibers become airborne and subsequently inhale the carcinogenic particles. However, children could also come in contact with asbestos fibers – for instance, when greeting their fathers. Anyone inhabiting the same living space as a person working at A & I Corporation was more or less at risk.

While money will never be able to completely restore your health, it is important to keep in mind that you have the possibility of recovering compensation for your injury from your family member’s former employer.
