Expedited Release Checks Important Please Read
The Settlement Facility Dow Corning Trust has recently decided to send Expedited Release Payments ($2,000) to all claimants whose cases are idle.
The Dow Settlement criteria states that if you accept this payment you can NEVER apply for a disease claim in the future, even if you become sick.
If you receive one of these checks in the mail, please do not cash it until you speak with an attorney to discuss your potential claim.
Again, if you cash this check you have effectively settled your claim and can never get any additional money.
