Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Modified asbestos bill may limit victims’ claims

A group of lawyers are criticizing the amended asbestos bill recently signed Governor Doug Ducey, claiming it will limit the compensations that should be given to asbestos victims, The Island Packet reported on April 11.

Governor Ducey reportedly signed the amended House Bill 2603 to further promote fairness and transparency in asbestos litigation. Under the amended bill, people filing lawsuits after being harmed by asbestos should give a sworn statement announcing any current or future claims they may file. In certain situations, businesses that are being sued may possibly prolong court proceedings by asking a judge to delay it if the victim could file a claim through one of the many trust funds set up for asbestos victims. The governor signed the bill days after national asbestos awareness week.
