asbestos-trust-listIt is reported there are well over one hundred (100) asbestos trust funds designed to compensate victims who were exposed to asbestos and later developed mesothelioma or another asbestos-related illness.  Most mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer victims file claims against the trust funds with the greatest amount of money available.  The table below identifies all known asbestos trust funds including Name, Companies, Bankruptcy Filed Date, Trust Fund Established Date, Status, Address, Funds in the Trust, People Involved, and a Short History of the trust.

Individuals affected by asbestos-exposure should always keep in mind that funds are limited, and the amount of money someone with asbestos cancer receives will depend on a variety of factors.  Typically a claimant will receive a percentage of what he or she is eligible for. An example of this would be: If a person is eligible for $100,000 and a particular trust fund pays 40% of a claimant’s eligible amount, the claimant will receive $40,000.  A payment issued by one trust fund may not be enough to help someone suffering from mesothelioma to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. In order to maximize the amount of compensation,  it’s vital to discuss all legal options with our mesothelioma lawyers who can provide guidance and available options in a free, confidential consultation.
