The Claims Administrator has been very busy reviewing the more than 10,000 claims enrolled in the Actos Settlement Program. Interim settlement payments began in late summer and continue as the Claims Administrator works very hard to complete the review process.

The Claims Administrator will begin evaluating Extraordinary Injury Fund (EIF) claims in the coming weeks. The Master Settlement Agreement provided for the EIF to provide additional compensation for those claimants who had minor children when they were diagnosed with bladder cancer, suffered economic damages of more than $200,000, or suffered other extraordinary injuries that were not compensated by the settlement program. EIF claims packages were due to be submitted on July 18, 2016.

We expect to receive EIF payments and final settlement payments for the claims lawyers in our firm’s Mass Torts Section submitted on behalf of our clients during the first half of 2017. If you have any questions about the terms of the settlement or the status of a particular claim, contact Liz Eiland or Roger Smith, lawyers in our Mass Torts Section, at 800-898-2034 or by email at Liz.Eiland@beasleyallen.com or Roger.Smith@beasleyallen.com.

A positive manner

Several years ago my brother and sister -in-law were in a terrible car accident. My sister in-law was paralyzed from her neck down. Beasley Allen handled the case for my brother to see to it that my sister-in-law received the proper and necessary care she needed. I appreciate the attorneys and staff of Beasley Allen in handling this matter quickly and in a positive manner. Good job Beasley Allen!!
