Asbestos Bankruptcy Trusts

Asbestos litigation began in the United States during the 1970s, and by 2002 defendants paid over $49 billion in compensation to claimants. As more and more lawsuits began to be filed, many asbestos defendants filed for bankruptcy protection and reorganization under section 524(g) of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

Reorganization does not mean that an asbestos defendant has run out of money, but rather that it has a large amount of asbestos liabilities. Reorganization allows the defendants to pay claims while protecting their assets. Courts have ordered many of the primary asbestos defendants who have filed for bankruptcy to set up personal injury trust funds specifically to compensate asbestos victims. These types of funds are also called Asbestos Bankruptcy Trusts.

Asbestos Bankruptcy Claims

These Asbestos Bankruptcy Trusts are set up to provide payments for all present and future asbestos injury victims. Payments usually equal only a small portion of their true value. Because of our knowledge and experience, the asbestos lawyers at Cory Watson Attorneys are able to efficiently and effectively establish the rights of our clients to the money that has been put into these asbestos trusts for victims of mesothelioma and other asbestos related diseases. We fight for every dollar owed our clients by these asbestos trusts.

We are able to so effectively process asbestos bankruptcy claims because of our specialized knowledge and dedicated staff. Our asbestos lawyers know exactly what needs to be done to maximize the payments to our clients. Assisting our attorneys is our large, dedicated asbestos bankruptcy department. As a result of our size, we can quickly and efficiently complete and file claims against the many companies that have filed for bankruptcy and get you the compensation you rightfully deserve.

When will I receive my asbestos bankruptcy settlements?

The time it takes companies to plan, establish, and begin asbestos payouts from their trusts can be anywhere from several months to several years. While no firm can avoid these delays to payments, the hard work and experience of our dedicated asbestos attorneys and bankruptcy staff means that our clients receive their settlements as fast as possible.

Having filed over 60,000 individual bankruptcy claims with forty-six different bankruptcy trusts means our staff is intimately familiar with the processes, requirements, and formats required by each trust. Our experience allows us to cut out delays caused by missing or incomplete information.
