Asbestos Bankruptcy Trust Lawsuits
After extended exposure to asbestos, you may have developed an asbestos-related disease such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, colon cancer, esophageal cancer, or Pleural disease. These conditions are serious, life-threatening illnesses, and the party whose product caused your disease should be held responsible.
Asbestos and Bankruptcy
Due to its cost effectiveness and availability, asbestos was used in a variety of construction materials including insulation, roofing tiles, and drywall. Unfortunately, the individuals who worked with these products on a daily basis developed severe illnesses directly relating to the asbestos.
After the discovery of the poisonous characteristics of asbestos, the companies who invested in asbestos products soon filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy. This gave them immunity from all lawsuits; however, a condition of their asbestos bankruptcy was to establish trusts to be used as payments to those directly affected by the harmful effects of asbestos.
