About Asbestos Bankruptcy Trusts
You may know or have read of the number of bankruptcies that have occurred due to mesothelioma litigation. What you may not know is that most of the companies who have declared bankruptcy after exposing workers to asbestos for decades are still doing a thriving business. And because of their bankruptcies, they do not have to worry about mesothelioma victims suing them anymore.
Establishment Of The Asbestos Bankruptcy Trusts
Realizing that there were an enormous number of potential lawsuits just sitting out there, waiting to be filed — one after another for decades — companies that manufactured products with asbestos quickly sought to limit their losses by filing for bankruptcy protection under Chapter 11.
As part of that process, dozens of asbestos bankruptcy trusts (some with billions of dollars) were set up to compensate people with asbestos-related medical conditions. Meanwhile, after funding those trusts as directed by the bankruptcy courts, many of the companies reorganized successfully, yet were now insulated from future claims.
It was a win-win situation.
