AC&S Asbestos Insulation products Linked to Mesothelioma & Cancer

AC&S installed asbestos insulation in commercial and industrial buildings up until 1985. Asbestos cancer lawsuits forced the company to file for bankruptcy in 2002, and an asbestos trust fund became active in 2009.

AC&S sold asbestos-containing gaskets, including the Accobest AN-B012, Accobest AS-474, Accobest AS-8073 and Accopac. These were also distributed by Armstrong World Industries.

Due to the extremely toxic nature of asbestos materials, insulators and others who worked regularly with asbestos and other carcinogenic materials at AC&S are at an increased risk of developing mesothelioma and lung cancer years after exposure. Insulators, construction workers, plumbers and electricians are all likely to have been exposed to some form of AC&S asbestos insulation in the last 50 years.

What Kind of Settlement Can an Asbestos Product Exposure Lawyer Secure for You?

An experienced asbestos product exposure lawyer can secure various types of settlements for individuals affected by asbestos-related injuries or illnesses. These settlements aim to provide compensation for the physical, emotional, and financial hardships that victims and their families endure. Common types of settlements include:

  • Personal Injury Compensation: Victims exposed to asbestos and diagnosed with asbestos-related diseases, such as mesothelioma or asbestosis, may receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain, suffering, and other damages.

  • Wrongful Death Settlements: In cases where a loved one has passed away due to asbestos exposure, surviving family members may seek wrongful death settlements to cover funeral costs, loss of income, and emotional distress.

  • Product Liability Claims: Manufacturers and distributors of asbestos-containing products may be held accountable, resulting in settlements that provide justice and financial relief to affected individuals.

  • Trust Fund Claims: Asbestos trust funds, established by bankrupt companies with asbestos liabilities, can provide settlements for victims, ensuring they receive compensation even if the responsible company is no longer in business.

  • Veterans’ Benefits: Veterans exposed to asbestos during their service may be eligible for settlements through VA disability benefits or legal actions.

The specific settlement amount varies based on individual circumstances, such as the severity of the illness, the extent of exposure, and the defendant’s liability. An experienced lawyer will work diligently to secure the most favorable settlement for their clients, striving to provide the necessary financial support and closure for those affected by asbestos-related issues.

AC&S Sold Toxic Products

AC&S, also known as Armstrong Contracting and Supply Corporation, sold asbestos-containing insulation manufactured by other companies.

The company installed some asbestos insulation products manufactured by Armstrong, but ACandS never manufactured asbestos products.

In 1974, AC&S said it no longer used materials containing friable asbestos but according to an ACandS bankruptcy statement, the company continued to use asbestos until 1985.
