Johns Manville, one of the first companies to begin making products with asbestos, eventually went bankrupt when the flood of cancer litigation targeted the company and created a $2.5 billion trust in 1988 to compensate the tens of thousands of people exposed to their toxic products.

The JM asbestos trust works to accommodate all claimants, around five percent of the value of each verified disease level. Claimants may file claims without a lawyer, but the process is complex and a lawyer can help gain the maximum settlement on your behalf. An asbestos cancer lawyer can help victims get the compensation they deserve and lawyer fees are capped.
