Asbestos Bankruptcy Attorneys
If you were a construction or factory worker during the early and mid-20th century, you may have been exposed to asbestos or asbestos products. From this exposure, many men and women have developed serious health conditions including mesothelioma, cancers, and asbestosis.
Developing Asbestos-Related Cancer
When working with or around asbestos, workers are very likely to inhale or ingest asbestos in the form of fibers. These fibers travel throughout your body and stick to the tissue surrounding certain organs. After years of irritation and inflammation caused by the fibers, tumors begin to develop on the organs. Some of the most common asbestos-related cancers include: mesothelioma lung cancer, esophageal cancer, colon cancer, colorectal cancer, and asbestosis.
Fighting Against Asbestos Bankruptcy Trusts
Because of the dire effects of asbestos on those exposed to it, many companies have declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Unfortunately, bankruptcy gives companies immunity from all mesothelioma lawsuits claimed by victims. However, these companies were ordered to set up asbestos bankruptcy trusts in order to provide compensation for legitimate mesothelioma, cancer, and asbestosis claims.
