No. You can easily file a claim with asbestos trust funds without traveling if you work with a lawyer, as they will take care of most legal matters on your behalf.

answered by Eddie Perry

It is not necessary that you travel

If you suffer from a terrible disease as a consequence of occupational asbestos exposure and contemplate taking legal action, your concerns might understandably refer to traveling, among other aspects. However, this should be the last thing on your mind, as you will not be required to travel if you choose to file your asbestos claim with the assistance of a specialized lawyer. In the majority of cases, they or another legal expert will come to you to discuss your situation, whether you are at home or in the hospital, and will subsequently prepare your asbestos claim for submission. Since recovering compensation from asbestos trust funds is not the same as regular litigation, it does not entail going to trial, so your attendance will not be necessary during the process. By letting a law firm whose activity is dedicated primarily to helping asbestos victims take care of your case, you can continue focusing on your treatment without additional stress.

Since 1990, Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. has been filing asbestos claims on behalf of thousands of victims of exposure all across the U.S. If you or a family member was injured by asbestos exposure, we wholeheartedly encourage you to contact one of our attorneys and recover the compensation you deserve.
