How the Bankruptcy Claims Process Works

If you were exposed to asbestos products manufactured by any of the companies that went into bankruptcy, you may have the legal right to file a claim for money damages against those Bankruptcy Trusts responsible for your asbestos exposure and injuries.

While you may be entitled to substantial money form the Bankruptcy Trusts, you will need the assistance of experienced attorneys to help you navigate through the complex Bankruptcy Trust filing procedures.

The attorneys at Lipsitz, Ponterio & Comerford have a Bankruptcy Department devoted solely to representing and helping clients obtain a successful bankruptcy cash settlement.

If you or a family member were exposed to asbestos products manufactured by a company now in bankruptcy, the attorneys at Lipsitz, Ponterio & Comerford will meet with you and help you obtain a successful award against the Bankruptcy Trusts.
