Instructions for Filing an Individual Review (IR) Claim

Individualized review is designed for claimants with serious or fatal asbestos-related injuries whose bodily injury claims (asbestos personal injury claims) require the added effort and expense of individualized evaluation.  The individualized review provides a claimant with an individual consideration and evaluation of his or her claim.

Individualized review is intended to result in payments equal to the full tort system value for each claim times the Payment Percentage.  However, claim values will be based on only the several liability of Celotex or Carey Canada, whichever is greater.  These payments may be either greater or less than the discounted cash payment that a claimant might have received.  Because the detailed examination and individualized valuation of asbestos personal injury claims require greater time and effort, claims electing individualized review will be processed and paid after claims filed at the same time electing discounted cash payments.
