Superior legal assistance for the family members of Armstrong World Industries, Inc. workers injured by secondary asbestos exposure
Due to the numerous lawsuits which were being filed against the company after 1980 by former employees whose health had been affected by occupational asbestos exposure, Armstrong World Industries, Inc. sought bankruptcy protection in 2000. Today, both people injured by workplace exposure and those who came to suffer the harrowing consequences of secondary exposure can recover the money they deserve from the asbestos trust fund of the company, which was established in 2006. So far, thousands of asbestos victims have successfully claimed the financial compensation they were eligible for, and the company still has approximately $2 million in their trust fund at the moment.

Legal help for victims of asbestos exposure
If you were employed at Armstrong World Industries, Inc. during the heyday of asbestos, we strongly advise you to undergo a thorough medical examination. Unfortunately, the diseases asbestos exposure causes often go undetected for years due to a lack of specific, perceivable symptoms. To promote early diagnosis, we offer free asbestos screenings to people who worked at Armstrong World Industries, Inc. before the company ceased the use of this carcinogen. Please send in your most recent chest X-ray and, after a careful examination, our experts will let you know whether the asbestos fibers in your lungs have produced any damage so far.
The surviving family members of a worker who developed a disease as a result of occupational asbestos exposure but has not taken legal action during their lifetime are also eligible for compensation. With over 25 years of experience in pursuing compensation for the victims of asbestos exposure and their family members, our attorneys will help you recover the money you deserve on behalf of your loved one. While it is very complex, the legal process requires minimal involvement on your part, as the majority of the aspects, such as the claim and the documents which must accompany it, will be efficiently handled by our legal team.
