The Lyon Firm is investigating Johns Manville asbestos exposure claims on behalf of former employees and contractors. John Manville was known to use hazardous asbestos materials that may have caused cancer and other serious illness to those who spent time in the facilities or used its many toxic products.
After branching out into fiberglass in 1958 and moving its headquarters from New York to Denver, Colorado, in 1972, Johns Manville became a leading U.S. manufacturer of PVC pipe, asbestos cement pipe and fiberglass.
Johns Manville asbestos products such as asbestos roofing and insulation, asbestos automotive sheet cylinder packing and asbestos cement were among some of their bestsellers, and also a major cause of cancer cases around the country. Many of the JM products were used by the Navy and other arms of the military.
Johns Manville Products and Brands include the following:
- 352 Insulating Cement
7M-13 Raw Asbestos Fibers

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.
