Companies Exposing Employees to Asbestos

It helps to know which companies produce asbestos, or which ones use asbestos as part of specific processes. Below is a list of several companies that may have exposed workers to dangerous amounts of asbestos. The list is not exhaustive so it will not include every company that uses or produces asbestos.

If you or someone you love has ever worked at any of the below companies, don’t waste any time and have a doctor test you for mesothelioma. Exposure to asbestos at work is the most dangerous because it means you were exposed to the deadly particle daily and for many hours at a time, most likely in high concentrations.

Companies that Declared Bankruptcy from Asbestos Lawsuits

Trust funds are available to individuals seeking financial compensation from bankrupt asbestos companies. The asbestos companies that have filed bankruptcy are still able to pay mesothelioma claimants because the courts have allowed them to set up these trust funds with the sole purpose of paying people who have been impacted by asbestos.

So instead of directly suing the companies, individuals are able to file damage claims with the fund administrator. Hundreds of thousands of people have benefited by obtaining compensation from asbestos trust funds.
