Sheet and Tube workers may have asbestos claims

YOUNGSTOWN — Plant workers employed before 1981 diagnosed with various cancers caused by asbestos exposure are entitled to special benefits. Asbestos-laced products were used for decades at Youngstown Sheet and Tube, and neither employees nor management were aware of the asbestos risk.

According to the National Cancer Institute, “It can take from 10 to 40 years or more for asbestos-related cancers to appear.”

To compensate cancer victims and the families of deceased cancer victims, federal bankruptcy courts have required asbestos manufacturers to set aside hundreds of millions of dollars in private trusts. Through these trusts, cancer victims can receive money damages by the filing of timely, detailed, and accurate claims.

Norris Injury Lawyers has announced a specific initiative to assist Youngstown Sheet and Tube employees in recovering money set aside for them in these asbestos trusts. Cancer victims or the families of deceased victims who worked at the plant before 1981 may call 800-478-9578 for a free evaluation of their claim.
