Yes, many companies have set up trust funds. Money has been set aside in these trust funds to compensate patients with mesothelioma, as well as other types of asbestos-related cancers. This compensation may cover lost wages, treatment costs, funeral bills, and pain and suffering.
Usually settlement is reached with a trust out of court. Bankrupt Trust companies which no longer exist have limited funds, and payment is made based on a payment percentage and level of disease.
