Asbestos disease and the litigation brought by its victims has received a lot of media attention over the years, especially concerning the bankruptcy of a number of asbestos manufacturers like Johns-Manville and Celotex, and because of class action lawsuits that were filed attempting to reach global settlements of all asbestos claims.

It is important to know that persons who are now diagnosed with asbestos disease may have the right to bring claims against the identifiable manufacturers and suppliers of asbestos products to which they were exposed and which caused their injuries and they are not precluded from making claims by the bankruptcies and class actions.

Persons diagnosed with asbestos disease may be entitled to bring a asbestos lawsuit against the manufacturers and suppliers of asbestos products which caused their illness and injury, and to assert claims with the trusts of bankrupt asbestos makers. They may also be entitled to file a claim against their employer in Workers’ Compensation or against the railroad under the F.E.L.A.
