EFH Asbestos Claim Deadline Now Here
December 14 is your last chance ever to file an EFH asbestos claim (Energy Futures Holding). And that day is almost here. On December 14 at 5 pm Eastern Standard Time – which is 2 pm in California – you and your family will permanently lose the chance to achieve justice from this giant energy corporation even if you become sick or die from asbestos exposure in years to come.
Filing an EFH asbestos claim will require documentation so please do not wait until the last minute. You potentially have much to gain by filing a claim and much to lose by doing nothing.
If you or a family member has ever worked at an EFH power plant, you must have your attorney file a claim with the EFH Claims Processing Center by the December 14, 2015 deadline. The time to act is now.
We at Kazan Law can file the EFH asbestos claim for you if you do not have a qualified asbestos attorney. You will not be charged anything unless we obtain a future settlement for you. Although December 14th is the deadline at the EFH Claims Processing Center, Kazan Law must receive the claim form and our signed form authorizing us to represent you by Monday, December 7, 2015. We also must be able to speak with you by close of business that day in order to prepare your formal EFH asbestos claim form for submission.
Filing a claim whether or not you are ill right now with an asbestos-related disease will protect your future legal rights. This is not how we usually do things but the unfairness of the EFH December 14 deadline leaves no other option.
December 14 EFH Asbestos Claim Deadline Imposed by Bankruptcy
The December 14 deadline for all EFH asbestos claims is unfair. It shortchanges potentially thousands of victims who may have been exposed to asbestos at an EFH-owned plant but currently have no symptoms of asbestos-caused disease. But when you are a $36 billion energy company like EFH with holdings all across the US and around the world, fairness does not enter into the equation.
Energy Future Holdings, knowing it had many asbestos claims against it, successfully filed for bankruptcy. This helped them to limit their financial losses and also drastically limited the legal rights of all its past, present and future asbestos victims.
EFH was required to publish notices about the December 14 claim filing deadline in newspapers and also required to directly contact former employees. But many people either may not have seen the item in the newspapers or received the letters that EFH was ordered to send, and may not realize that this deadline applies to them. The December 14 deadline applies to everyone – ill or not. Please share this information with anyone you know who may be affected.
Who the December 14 Deadline Impacts
The December 14 deadline for filing asbestos claims against EFH potentially impacts thousands of past employees, employees of other companies who worked at sites where companies for which EFH is now responsible did work, and all their family members. Many of them may not know that the power plant where they worked was owned by EFH or worked on by EFH companies. That is understandable. About 70 different companies are part of EFH. EFH subsidiary companies include Ebasco, EECI, Enserch, Lone Star Gas, Luminant and TXU, and many more. They worked [are located ]all over the United States and in overseas countries.
Asbestos-caused diseases may not produce any symptoms for decades. You may be ill but may not be diagnosed until many years from now. That is why it is so important to file a claim against EFH by the December 14 deadline if you or a family member ever worked at any of the power plants named in the lists we have provided.
