Protecting Your Right to Financial Compensation in Georgia

Bankruptcy Trusts

In 1982, companies responsible for causing asbestos injuries started setting up bankruptcy trust funds to handle the multitude of personal injury claims while keeping themselves in business. Bankruptcy by these companies often prevents a victim from receiving full compensation and requires a victim to accept nothing, or pennies on the dollar for their claims.

Since 1982, over 80 companies have filed for bankruptcy. Many have set up trust funds to compensate asbestos victims.

The following is a partial list of companies who have filed for bankruptcy because of the asbestos-related claims against them but have established funds to compensate victims.
