Asbestos trust funds and how they work

What is a trust fund?

A fund consisting of money that belongs to a trust, held by the trustees for the beneficiaries. Companies that manufactured asbestos fund the trust, and the injured workers and their families are the beneficiaries.

What are asbestos trusts?

Most companies that knowingly exposed their workers to asbestos chose to file for bankruptcy to shield themselves from lawsuits. As a result, these companies were forced to create trust funds to compensate mesothelioma victims and their families.

How do trust funds work?

Funds are placed in a trust and a trustee is appointed to decide the amount of money each claimant will receive. Evidence required to file a trust claim includes diagnosis, place of exposure, and products worker was exposed to.

Benefit to asbestos victims

Mesothelioma victims are able to obtain compensation faster through trust funds than going through the lawsuit process. Over $30 billion dollars has been set aside in asbestos trusts to provide compensation for patients and their families.
