Who Should File a Claim

Now that you have an understanding of the history of WRG, let’s explore who is eligible to file a claim with the Trust.

The Trust is designed to provide compensation for those who have an injury as a result of exposure to asbestos-containing products that were manufactured by WRG.  The Trust also protects those who are not presently injured but may develop an asbestos-related disease in the future due to exposure.

If you are unsure of your eligibility, you may still file a claim with the Trust.  Your claim will be reviewed and we will determine your eligibility.

Choosing Claim Options

You must choose between two types of claim filing processes: Expedited or Individual Review. The Expedited Review option is a much shorter process resulting in a quicker response for payment. The Individual Review option undergoes a more detailed review and the value of the claims is determined by the information provided.

Expedited Review

  • Shorter process resulting in quicker response;
  • Processed first, in order of first received by the Trust;
  • Single, fixed payment;
  • All Expedited Review claims of the same disease category receive the same payment amount;
  • All Expedited Review claims are evaluated identically.

Individual Review

  • Undergoes a more detailed review;
  • Receives Individualized evaluation;
  • Could result in a higher or lower payment than the Expedited Review
  • Processed after Expedited Review claims received on the same date.
