Posted on Thursday, February 4th, 2021 at 4:17 am    

Different asbestos cases take different times to be resolved; some may drag on for year while others may be resolved in a matter of months. The question then is, what influences the timeline of an asbestos case? This article will discuss the factors at work in determining the timelines of an asbestos case.

Factors Affecting an Asbestos Timelines

It must be noted that there are a number of factors at work when determining the timeline of a given asbestos lawsuit. Some cases may be more complex than others. Below are some of the factors that directly impact the timeline of an asbestos case:

  • Bankrupt defendants – most of the original manufacturers and suppliers of asbestos related materials have set up bankruptcy trust funds for asbestos victims. These trust funds are not actively involved in litigation but require proof of exposure and illness. Further, they may also be processing thousands of other claims. As a result, they may be backlogged and getting a settlement may take a long time. It is not uncommon for such payments to still be pending even after a case has been resolved in court.

Despite all these factors affecting the timeline of asbestos cases it is important to have the necessary legal support. Legal representation makes the difference between walking blind in the dark and having headlights.
