There are hundreds of thousands of Americans who have suffered negative health effects after being exposed to asbestos. Unfortunately, a large potions of these asbestos victims do not know that they qualify for compensation from asbestos trust funds. There is currently more than 30 billion dollars sitting in these trusts, waiting to be accessed by individuals who worked closely with asbestos containing products and then developed asbestos related disease as a result.
A common misconception is that asbestos companies only pay out to individuals with a lung cancer or mesothelioma diagnosis, however, this is not the case. There are a wide range of qualifying conditions that will allow you to apply to these asbestos trusts to get the compensation you deserve. The best part? There is no need to file a lawsuit or appear in court. Our asbestos attorneys will do all of the paperwork for you to prove you worked closely with asbestos and have developed a related condition as a result.
Asbestos exposure has been linked to many life threatening illnesses including mesothelioma, lung cancer, throat cancer, esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, and colon cancer. However, it has also been linked to asbestosis, a condition that often goes undiagnosed. If you have worked with asbestos and experience shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, our law firm wants to hear from you.
Additionally, asbestosis and the above mentioned cancers can take decades to develop after exposure to asbestos. This makes it important for those who have a history of working with this toxic material to stay on top of routine health screenings and watch out for early warning signs of illness developing.
