Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Asbestos bill to be heard in Louisiana Senate Committee

A bill is currently in the Louisiana Senate Committee will change the way the discovery process in asbestos cases is handled.

The House Bill 477  is an asbestos bankruptcy bill that will require plaintiffs in asbestos cases to give a full list of defendants during the discovery process of the bill.

Those who are in favor of the bill have stated that this will prevent people from being able to receive multiple settlements for the injuries. A problem arises in the distinction between asbestos lawsuits of claims against bankruptcy trusts that occurred as companies went out of business due to liquidation to pay for asbestos-related suits.
