Dana Corp announced a settlement of 7,500 Personal Injury Claims involving asbestos-laden gaskets produced by the auto-parts supplier. They want to pay a maximum of $ 2 Million to settle all claims, providing the claimants submit the required proof to support their claims. This will help the company settle approximately 7 percent of the mesothelioma claims and 4 percent of the cancer claims filed against the Ohio based Auto parts supplier.
Dana has said asbestos-related personal-injury claims, which totaled 150,000 as of June 30, will pass through its bankruptcy unchanged.
It is important to note that the necessary supporting documentation is important for the claimants to receive any funds from the $2 Million proposed settlement. If they have any questions or concerns about the settlement or an asbestos related illness, they should contact an Asbestos Attorney or a Mesothelioma Attorney to discuss the case in greater detail.
