Department Buildings: Mesothelioma Lawsuits

Departments: Asbestos Exposure

People that worked in and lived around Departments that contained asbestos containing products may be at risk for developing Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related cancers in their lifetime.

Workers that helped build or tear down old Departments that contained toxic asbestos products that exposed them to toxic asbestos dust and fibers are at a higher risk.

If you have been diagnosed with Mesothelioma or an Asbestos related cancer you may be eligible to receive compensation from responsible asbestos companies and manufacturers for your asbestos exposure.

Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related cancers can lay dormant in people for 10-50 years. Asbestos exposure is responsible for approximately 10,000 deaths each year in the United States.

If you or a family member has been diagnosed with Mesothelioma or an Asbestos-related disease, we are here to help you file a claim.

Departments and Asbestos Exposure

  • Mesothelioma cases are found in 9 out of every 1 million people.
  • 1 in every 125 males over 55 will be diagnosed with an asbestos related cancer in their lifetime.
  • 1 in 3 U. S. Veterans will develop an asbestos related disease in their lifetime.
  • In the last 40 years more than 6,000 asbestos companies have been named in Mesothelioma and Asbestos claims.
  • There have been more than 600,000 Mesothelioma and asbestos-related claims with an estimated value of 275 billion.

Workers diagnosed with Mesothelioma have complained that they were not given any warning, training or respiratory protective gear when handling, installing, loading, repairing, or removing asbestos-containing products.

Asbestos is most dangerous when inhaled or ingested. Most workers were daily exposed to toxic asbestos dust and fibers where they inhaled and ingested them without any protection in their workplace.

More than 20 million American workers have been exposed to asbestos with the heaviest usage in the U. S. during 1930-1980.

If you or a family member has been diagnosed with Mesothelioma or an Asbestos-related disease, we are here to help you file a claim.

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.

We have been helping victims of asbestos exposure and their families for more than 18 years. If you or a family member has been diagnosed with Malignant Mesothelioma or an Asbestos-related disease, we are here to help you file a claim with an experience Mesothelioma lawyer that will fight for you!

How Second-Hand Asbestos Exposure Occurs

When asbestos is disturbed, broken apart, cut, decayed, or damaged, it releases tiny asbestos microscopic fibrous particles that can cling to 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.

Asbestos is most dangerous when it is;


Abandoned Deteriorated Loose
Aged Disturbed Marred
Blown Off Dried Peeled
Breaks Drilled Pulverized
Brittle Exposed Removed
Broken Falling Apart Replaced
Bucked Flaming Rotted
Burnt Fragmented Sanded
Carried Frayed Sawed
Chiseled Friable Scorched
Chopped Glued Scraped
Cracked Grinded Scratched
Crumbled Ground Shrunk
Cut Grouted Torn
Damaged Handled Touched
Decayed Inhaled Warped
Demolished Leaked Worn Out
