What Are Asbestos Trust Funds?
Companies facing significant asbestos lawsuits are often forced into bankruptcy. Under U.S. bankruptcy code, these companies can reorganize and create an asbestos bankruptcy trust system to fund injury claims. The trusts are funded with the company's assets and victims are paid outside the court system. Asbestos bankruptcy trusts currently hold more than $30 billion.
If you are hesitant to contact an attorney because the company responsible for your injuries is bankrupt, know that financial help may be available to you through an asbestos trust fund.
Thousands of mesothelioma and other asbestos-related injury victims receive compensation through these funds. In 2008, victims of asbestos-related illnesses were provided about $3.3 billion through asbestos trust funds. The median trust payout for a victim of mesothelioma was $180,000. About two-thirds of trust payments go to mesothelioma claims.
You have every right to compensation for your injuries – regardless of the negligent company's ability to stay financially viable. We're here to fight for you and to pursue the compensation you deserve We encourage you to speak with our attorneys in a free consultation. Our asbestos trust fund lawyers will explain your legal options and determine whether you are eligible for trust payments
Why You Need a Strong Advocate on Your Side
Because these companies face these claims so often, many of them have developed strong defenses against admitting liability. For all mesothelioma cases – and particularly those in which frequent defendants are involved – you need experienced legal counsel. Pintas & Mullins Law Firm understands the strategies these companies use to escape liability in mesothelioma cases, and we know how to fight them.
We urge anyone diagnosed with an asbestos-related illness to discuss your case with our mesothelioma lawyers. All cases begin with a free initial consultation and are accepted on a contingency fee basis, which means that our Chicago mesothelioma attorneys are only paid if we obtain a settlement or verdict on your behalf.
