Our Specialists Provide Asbestos Screenings Free of Charge to Former Amatex Corporation Employees
Currently headquartered in Norristown, Pennsylvania, Amatex Corporation is still manufacturing heat-resistant products such as yarn, thread, cloth, lap, and cord nowadays. However, asbestos – which would invariably be present in their products before 1980 – is no longer a raw material they employ today due to the serious health consequences associated with exposure. Because the company had been fully aware of the dangers of asbestos exposure ever since the beginning, yet refused to cease its use, numerous personal injury lawsuits were filed against Amatex Corporation by injured workers. As of 1982, it was dealing with over 9,000 individuals who had taken legal action to recover compensation for their health problems. No longer able to afford paying out money to the people they had knowingly harmed, Amatex Corporation was forced to seek bankruptcy protection the same year and in 1990, their asbestos trust fund was created.
At the moment, the asbestos trust fund of the company has approximately $16 million for future claimants. If you were employed at Amatex Corporation while they were using asbestos and have recently developed a disease like asbestosis or lung cancer, it is highly recommended to contact a specialized lawyer who can help you recover the money you deserve for your suffering. We have been providing legal assistance to asbestos victims since 1990 and will eagerly take over your case. Furthermore, in the event you have a history of asbestos exposure but no diagnosis, we strongly advise you to keep a close eye on your health by undergoing periodical screenings. A chest X-ray is a simple way to see whether there are asbestos fibers in your lungs, as well as to observe the extent to which they might have damaged your organs. To promote timely diagnosis, our medical experts offer free asbestos screenings to former Amatex Corporation workers. You only have to send in your chest X-ray, which our specialists will carefully examine.
