Meet W.A.R.D. (Worldwide Asbestos Research Database).

The largest and most comprehensive database of asbestos-related information in the world.

W.A.R.D. will tell you:

  • Where you may have been exposed to asbestos
  • Which products you may have used that contained asbestos
  • Which compensation you may qualify for to help pay for your asbestos-related injuries
How do we use W.AR.D.?
In order to receive compensation for asbestos-related injuries, you must also show how you were exposed. W.A.R.D. helps us show where you worked and which asbestos products you likely used, so that we can submit your claim to asbestos bankruptcy trusts and other sources of compensation.

W.A.R.D. contains information on worksites with asbestos and asbestos products going back to the 1930s, including information about workplaces and companies that no longer exist.

Anyone exposed before 1982 could be entitled to compensation for injuries from asbestos exposure.

Look up your work site or an asbestos product on our database to see if you or a loved one might have been exposed to asbestos.

Asbestos Bankruptcy Trusts are court-ordered funds that can only be used to compensate people injured by asbestos exposure.

Applying for compensation from an Asbestos Trust is not filing a lawsuit.

Asbestos Bankruptcy Trust matters are almost always resolved much more easily than with a traditional lawsuit, and most applicants receive their money much more quickly.

At AsbestosClaims.Law, we offer a consultation about applying. We also do not charge any out of pocket costs to apply. We only receive a fee if – and after – you receive money for your injuries.

Asbestos companies and their insurers placed close to $30 Billion dollars into trust funds to pay people who where injured by asbestos.

But nearly 40% of the funds have still gone unclaimed by the victims. You may be entitled to a portion of these funds.

Asbestos fibers are microscopic and have no taste or smell, so people can easily inhale or swallow asbestos without even knowing it.

Asbestos is highly resistant to heat, pressure and corrosion, so it was used in many products, vehicles, construction materials and buildings.

In particular, industrial workplaces that involve high amounts of heat were built with a lot of asbestos.

Factories, refineries, foundries, railroads and shipyards were all built with a lot of asbestos.

Many industrial workers also used or spent time around asbestos products like gaskets, brakes, boilers, insulation and filters.

Our asbestos database W.A.R.D. was named in honor of Ward Stephenson, the first attorney to successfully win a case for a worker exposed to asbestos on the job.

Ward Stephenson’s client Clarence Borel was an asbestos insulator, who died of mesothelioma before the case was completed, but his widow pursued the case all the way to the Fifth Circuit.

She and Ward Stephenson prevailed against the companies, the first step in alerting the public to the dangers of asbestos, and helped force the industry to reform and pay compensation to those they had injured.
