20+ Years Helping Mesothelioma Victims!
Filing a Mesothelioma claim against negligent asbestos manufacturers will help compensate you for expensive medical treatments, recover lost income, and for pain and suffering from a Mesothelioma diagnosis.
U. S. Courts have determined that asbestos manufacturers and distributors can be held liable for injuries that people develop as a result of their asbestos exposure and are handing down multi-million dollars settlements and verdicts.
The first Mesothelioma cancer case was recorded in medical journals in early 1920s and the link with secondhand asbestos exposure was established in the 1960s.
Mesothelioma lawsuits can be very complex and you will be asked to provide documentation of your work and medical history. An experienced Mesothelioma attorney can help you determine whether additional expenses may be covered under your asbestos claim.
Before a Mesothelioma lawsuit can be filed a direct link must be established between the asbestos company, exposure to asbestos-containing products and a Mesothelioma diagnosis.
2 Types of Mesothelioma Lawsuit Claims
Mesothelioma Personal Injury Claims - Is a lawsuit that can be filed by any individual diagnosed with Mesothelioma.
Mesothelioma Wrongful Death Claims - Is a lawsuit that can be filed on behalf of surviving family members if a family member has died from Mesothelioma.
Most Mesothelioma lawsuits will settle out of court before a trial begins.
4 Steps in the Mesothelioma Claim Process
Step 1: Filing of Case – This will determine which asbestos companies are liable to file your claim against. Claimants will need to provide evidence of their workplace asbestos exposure.
Step 2: Review of Case – Trustees will review your claim, medical history and asbestos exposure. This allows them to determine if you claim meets their criteria for financial compensation.
Step 3: Liquidation – Trustees will determine how much financial compensation to payout. A Mesothelioma lawyer can negotiate individual claim for a larger settlement than the fixed amount set up by asbestos trust funds.
Step 4: Compensation Payment – When an agreement is reached with an asbestos company or asbestos trust fund the settlement amount is paid to the victim.
Statutes of Limitations is the period of time a Mesothelioma victim has to file a lawsuit.
The Statute of Limitations for Mesothelioma and asbestos exposure varies from state to state.
The Statute of Limitations for Mesothelioma begins when a person is either diagnosed or dies, not the date of their exposure.
An experienced Mesothelioma attorney can help you file a claim before your Statutes of Limitations expires.
Compensation for Mesothelioma claims can come from several different sources based on the liability, length of exposure, and when the asbestos exposure occurred.
