Asbestos Bankruptcy Trust
No Lawsuit is Required to File a Claim
Because asbestos use in the United States was so pervasive for so long, only recently has the full weight of its health care costs become apparent. In 1994, an amendment to the U.S. Bankruptcy Code by Congress provided special protection for companies with asbestos liability and made possible the establishment of asbestos bankruptcy trusts that companies could use to settle claims and avoid both litigation and future liability. Currently, 71 asbestos companies have filed for bankruptcy protection.
No lawsuit is required to file a claim with an asbestos bankruptcy trust. Our attorneys can pinpoint your exposure and the company or product responsible for it. Contact us.

No Recovery … No Fee
 Fel-Pro and Vellumoid claims will be submitted to the Federal Mogul Trust, which will in turn tender the claims to insurers. If no settlement is reached, the claimants will be allowed to sue in the tort system without caps.
 Currently, an injunction issued in the PCC bankruptcy protects PPG Industries and Corning Inc. from being sued for asbestos-related claims, but this injunction will eventually be lifted.
 An injunction issued in the Quigley bankruptcy case protects Pfizer from any asbestos-related claims, but this injunction is currently being challenged and will eventually be lifted.
