Asbestos Trust Funds - Bankrupt Asbestos Companies

Due to the overwhelming number of lawsuits filed against asbestos manufacturers, many manufacturers, suppliers and distributors of raw asbestos and asbestos-containing products have set aside over $30,000,000,000 ($30 Billion) in trust funds for victims of asbestos diseases (mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis, other cancers). Many of these companies are listed below in addition to sites where the products were potentially used.

The Asbestos Legal Center specializes in filing claims with these numerous Asbestos Trust Funds. In the past 5 years alone, we have recovered over 40 million dollars from these funds for victims of asbestos-related diseases. Please contact us if you think you may have claims with any of the companies below.

Client Reviews
"Just wanted you to understand how very thankful we are for everything you are doing for us. We haven't had anyone help us and look out for us like you have. It takes a very special person to do what you are doing, My father said just before he died that there would be someone that would come into my life to help me with his affairs. At that time I didn't understand what he was trying to say, but now I do. Again, thank you very much." Richard A Bennett, Client
