Fisheries: Asbestos Exposure
People that worked in and lived around Fisheries 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 Fisheries 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.

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.

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.
