What is a claim and who can file?
A "claim" means a right to seek payment or other compensation. You must file a proof of claim form so that it is actually received by the deadline. It can be filed by you, by a legal guardian, by survivors, or by relatives of people who have died or are disabled. All Personal Injury Claimant Proof of Claim Forms and any supporting documentation submitted with those forms will be kept highly confidential and will not be made available to the public. You do not need a lawyer to file a proof of claim for you.
Additionally, partnerships, corporations, joint ventures, trusts, governmental units, and first nation and indigenous governments or bands may also file a proof of claim against Purdue U.S.

You should file a Proof of Claim even if a settlement is contemplated in the Purdue U.S. bankruptcy proceeding so that your claim can be considered as part of any settlement. You should also file a Proof of Claim even if there is a pending class action settlement related to your claim.
