    Identify Where Asbestos Exposure Occurred

    Common Areas of Asbestos Exposure

    Most deaths from malignant mesothelioma in the United States are the result of exposures to asbestos decades prior. However, the continuing occurrence of mesothelioma deaths among persons under the age of 55 suggests ongoing occupational and environmental exposures to asbestos fibers. 

    According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), there are 75 different jobs that could have exposed workers to asbestos, with those jobs primarily involving construction and manufacturing. Thousands of American workers are still affected by asbestos each year. 

    Our Firm can help you identify the exposure sources and then initiate the proper claims so that will provide the security you and your family require.

    Asbestos Trust Fund Questions

    How do asbestos trust funds work?

    Asbestos trusts exist to provide compensation to victims of toxic occupational exposure and their families. Trust funds provided companies with a way to handle thousands of asbestos claims, as well as future cancer claims. Many companies filed for bankruptcy in an attempt to survive as an entity, and to help victims with medical costs.
