Asbestos Litigation Against Celotex
Although Celotex prevailed in an early asbestos case, there have been thousands of other lawsuits brought against the corporation from people who developed illnesses after being exposed to the asbestos in their insulation materials. By 1990, Celotex was declaring bankruptcy, and they formed the Celotex Asbestos Settlement Trust in 1998 to deal with all outstanding and future lawsuits. The Trust is designed to provide monetary compensation to victims of any valid asbestos-related personal injury claim.
Today people who have been affected by the asbestos that was contained in any Celotex product may contact the operators of the Trust Fund to find out the fastest way to file a claim. As of 2007 the company began offering web seminars that explain the entire procedure for settling claims quickly and accepting compensation online. A qualified mesothelioma attorney can help determine your eligibility for the Celotex trust, and assist you in filing your claim.
