Asbestos Trusts are there for those people and their families suffering from or hurt by the effects of an asbestos-related disease. They are set up to give those suffering from the malfeasance of bankrupt companies access to funds that might lessen their and their family’s suffering. They can be the only way to get paid by a bankrupt company. If you qualify, it is often worth pursing your claims.
