Instructions for Filing a Claim

The Expedited Review (ER) process is designed primarily to provide an expeditious, efficient and inexpensive method of liquidating all claims (except those involving Lung Cancer 2 – (Disease Level VI) claims and Foreign Claims) where the claim can be easily verified as meeting presumptive Medical/Exposure Criteria.

How to Initiate a Claim

If a claimant elects to file a claim, he or she must file a complete Claim Form and submit all supporting documentation.

Where to Submit Claim Forms

All paper submissions to the Owens-Illinois Asbestos Personal Injury Trust should be addressed to:

Owens-Illinois Asbestos Personal Injury Trust
P.O. Box 1189
Wilmington, DE 19899-1189

How to Qualify for Payment

To qualify for payment, a claimant must provide credible medical and exposure evidence and a submission deemed to be complete by the Owens-Illinois Asbestos Personal Injury Trust.

A claimant must submit a fully completed Claim Form, including all supporting information referenced in the form.  In addition, a claimant may file online using the The Owens-Illinois Asbestos Personal Injury Trust website. Individuals wishing to file online may download the Electronic Filer Agreement from the website.  Any claim filing, whether electronic or on paper, that is not complete or is missing any of the required information will not be processed until completed by the claimant.

Deadline for Submitting a Claim Form

There is no deadline for submitting claims other than the requirements imposed by the applicable statutes of limitation and the TDP.
