Asbestos Trust Funds Claims and Mesothelioma

U. S. Asbestos Bankruptcy Trusts Funds have paid out nearly 21 billion to more than 600,000 asbestos claimants. There are about 60 active Asbestos Trust Funds with an estimated $32 billion in remaining assets.

Asbestos Settlement Trusts were established to help compensate workers and their families for asbestos exposure causing Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. When an Asbestos company establishes a Trust Fund all settlements are managed by trustees that decide the compensation amounts paid to Mesothelioma claimants. U. S. Courts allow Asbestos defendants to file for protection under a legal process known as bankruptcy reorganization. This allows the company to pay claims and stay in business.

Asbestos Trust Fund settlements typically do not come with an admission of guilt by the asbestos company that set up the trust.

If you have a history of asbestos exposure you should be checked each year by a qualified doctor.

Asbestos Exposure in Your Neighborhood

 

Asbestos Trust Funds LawyersAsbestos was used heavily in U. S. building trades between 1930-1980. More than 3,000 commonly used products contained toxic asbestos fibers and materials.

Workers and Residents that were exposed to asbestos are at higher risk (7 times) than the general population for being diagnosed with Mesothelioma or an asbestos-related disease in their lifetime.

It can take 10-50 years after initial asbestos exposure before symptoms of Mesothelioma may appear. People that were exposed to asbestos in Arizona decades ago are walking time bombs. There is no clear way of knowing if a person will develop Mesothelioma, but most people diagnosed are around 70 years of age.

If you worked in an industry that exposed you to deadly asbestos fibers a Mesothelioma lawyer can help you seek compensation for medical expenses resulting from a Mesothelioma cancer diagnosis.

When asbestos is disturbed, broken apart, cut, decayed, or damaged, it releases tiny asbestos microscopic fibrous particles that can cling to the skin, hair and clothing. These asbestos fibers are easily transferred to others where they can accumulate in the lining of lungs that cause Mesothelioma lung cancer.

What is Secondhand Exposure to Asbestos?

Secondhand asbestos exposure, (also called; secondary asbestos exposure, bystander asbestos exposure and drive-by asbestos exposure) refers to any form of ingestion when an individual comes into contact with asbestos materials or products containing asbestos.

Secondary asbestos exposure came to light when spouses and children of workers that handled asbestos on jobsites started developing Mesothelioma cancer many years after their initial exposure. When work clothes were shaken out and laundered, millions of tiny asbestos fibers would become airborne and be ingested or breathed.

Court documents showed that spouses and children that inhaled or ingested microscopic asbestos fibers from washing clothes and coming into contact with family members. Asbestos dust and fibers were brought into the home on work clothes and shoes.
