Asbestos Trust Funds

The sole purpose of Asbestos Trust Funds is to compensate people who have been injured by exposure to asbestos


There is over $30 Billion in funding for these Trusts

  

There are now over 30 different companies who previously supplied asbestos-containing products throughout the USA and Canada that have established Trust Funds to compensate the victims of asbestos disease. The sole purpose of these Trust Funds is to compensate people who have been injured by exposure to asbestos. There is over $30 Billion in funding for these Trusts.

 

The Trusts are required to treat Canadian claimants in the same way as claimants from the USA, so the eligibility of Canadians to claim against the Trusts is clear. We have brought claims for hundreds of Canadian claimants over the past decade and obtained compensation for them.

 

We have an extensive list of sites throughout Canada where asbestos-containing products which were manufactured by these companies were used. This means that even if a person cannot recall all the products that they worked with, we have other ways of identifying the products that were present at the sites where they worked.


Claim process against the Trusts

 

The process for making claims against the Trusts is not difficult if you have experienced lawyers acting for you. There is no court action involved as these claims are administrative in nature. Claims may be available against multiple Trust Funds as many people have been exposed to asbestos from a variety of sources, so separate claims are made against each Trust that is responsible for the products.

 

In a lot of cases, it is possible to resolve claims against some of the Trusts within a matter of several months.

 

The range of payments from the Trusts varies based on the type of condition, the products the person was exposed to, their age etc. We can discuss the likely awards of compensation with you once we know a bit more about your exposure and employment history.

The list of companies that have established Trust Funds is extensive and continues to grow as more companies obtain relief from lawsuits via the establishment of a Trust.
