As part of our continued representation of clients suffering from asbestos disease, Lipsitz, Ponterio & Comerford files claims against bankrupt asbestos companies.  Because these companies have declared bankruptcy, it is impossible to sue them.  The claims process thus becomes the only way for clients to recover money for their asbestos disease from exposure to asbestos-containing products manufactured or distributed by bankrupt companies.  (Even in instances where a lawsuit against viable companies is time-barred, very often bankruptcy claims can still be filed.)  Because there are very specific medical and product exposure guidelines for each Bankruptcy Trust,  not every client has a valid claim against every Trust.
