What Compensation Can You Seek From an Armstrong Asbestos Trust Fund or Lawsuit?

Individuals filing an Armstrong asbestos exposure lawsuit or seeking compensation from an asbestos trust fund may be eligible to claim various types of damages. 

The specific damages sought will depend on the circumstances of each case, but generally include:

  • Medical Expenses: This includes compensation for past and future medical bills related to asbestos-related illnesses like mesothelioma, asbestosis, or esophageal cancer. This includes diagnostic tests, treatments, surgeries, medications, and other healthcare costs.
  • Lost Wages: Damages can cover reimbursement for income lost due to the inability to work because of asbestos-related illnesses. This may include both past and future lost earnings.
  • Pain and Suffering: This may include damages for physical pain, emotional distress, and the overall impact on the quality of life caused by asbestos-related diseases. This is a non-economic damage that aims to compensate for the intangible suffering experienced.
  • Punitive Damages: In some cases, punitive damages may be awarded as a way to punish the responsible party for their negligence and deter similar behavior in the future. However, the availability of punitive damages varies by jurisdiction.
  • Wrongful Death Damages: In cases where the asbestos exposure leads to the death of the plaintiff, their surviving family members or estate may file a wrongful death lawsuit. Damages in such cases can include compensation for funeral expenses, loss of financial support, and loss of companionship.

When pursuing compensation from an asbestos trust fund, it’s important to note that these funds are typically established by companies that file for bankruptcy due to asbestos liabilities. See the next section for further information.

    How to Access the Armstrong Asbestos Trust Fund

    The Armstrong World Industries Asbestos Trust was established under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code to resolve all asbestos claims for which the AWI Company has legal responsibility. The Trust is organized to pay all valid asbestos personal injury claims against these defendants and certain related protected parties.

    The trust fund was officially established in 2006 and was initially funded with $2.06 billion. Since the trust opened, more than 300,000 claims have been filed, and the company has paid out more than $2.8 billion.

    The Lyon Firm is investigating cancer claims that qualify for compensation from the Armstrong World Industries asbestos trust. The Armstrong Trust is one of the largest asbestos trusts, and if you’ve been injured by asbestos exposure, you deserve your share.

    Armstrong World endangered thousands of Americans by using raw asbestos in its flooring, ceiling boards, tile, cabinets, insulation, and cement. The company’s vinyl asbestos tile was found in homes across the country. Contact our legal team at (513) 381-2333 if you or a loved one have been diagnosed with an asbestos-related illness following employment at Armstrong World.

    What Does an Armstrong Industries Asbestos Exposure Attorney Do for Your Case?

    Here’s what an asbestos attorney does for your case:

    • Gathering Evidence: Our asbestos attorneys will gather all necessary evidence to support your case. This may involve collecting medical records, employment history, and documentation related to asbestos exposure, such as product information or witness testimonies.
    • Negotiating Settlements: Many asbestos cases are settled out of court. Your attorney will negotiate with the defendant’s legal teams or insurers to secure a fair settlement that compensates you for your injuries. This can help you access the Armstrong Trust Fund and avoid a lengthy trial process.
    • Filing Lawsuits: If a settlement cannot be reached, your attorney will prepare a specific lawsuit on your behalf. This includes gathering expert witnesses, developing a legal strategy, and potentially presenting your case in court.

    It’s important to choose an experienced asbestos attorney with a proven track record in handling asbestos-related cases. If you or a loved one has been affected by asbestos exposure, reach out to Joe Lyon today for individualized attention.
