Filing a lawsuit against an asbestos company is not always an option. Around 60 asbestos companies have filed for bankruptcy and set up trusts to help them deal with the number of individuals who have been affected by their products.
Have you been exposed to asbestos due to a company's product? You might be wondering if you are eligible to file a claim against an asbestos trust. Check this list of asbestos companies in bankruptcy to determine if you might have been affected by one of their products.
Once a company has set up a trust as part of their bankruptcy plan, claimants will file claims against the settlement trust rather than the asbestos company. The process for filing a claim with an asbestos trust varies from trust to trust. Oftentimes, an experienced asbestos attorney can help you determine the right steps to take.
