Asbestos Attorneys in Texas
Asbestos and Bankruptcy
For many years, asbestos was used in a variety of construction and manufacturing products because it is an inexpensive material. However, it was later discovered that asbestos is a toxic substance that has the potential to cause serious illnesses including mesothelioma, asbestosis, and cancers such as esophageal, colon, and lung.
Many of the companies who exposed their employees to asbestos have filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy which provides them with immunity from all lawsuits. Fortunately, one of the important terms of the bankruptcy was to set up a trust by pulling assets and insurance proceeds for the victims of asbestos exposure.
