Why file a mesothelioma lawsuit?
In addition to holding the asbestos companies who harmed you accountable for their actions, filing a mesothelioma lawsuit can help you and your family cover medical expenses and lost wages. Mesothelioma is an expensive disease to treat; travel costs for visits to your mesothelioma specialist can add up quickly. Compensation from your mesothelioma lawsuit may allow you the flexibility to pay for any treatment costs that your insurance company will not cover. Simply put, filing a mesothelioma claim can allow you to take care of yourself during an exceedingly difficult time for you and your family.
How do mesothelioma lawsuits work?
In a mesothelioma lawsuit, parties who made or used asbestos-containing products may be held liable for the injuries caused by those products. Parties that can be held responsible by filing a mesothelioma lawsuit may include:
- The product manufacturer
- The manufacturer of component parts
- The wholesaler or distributor of the product
- The company who employed workers to use asbestos-containing products
The most important step in filing a mesothelioma lawsuit is understanding the deadlines that govern how much time you have to file.
The laws that govern mesothelioma litigation are determined at the state level, and every state’s requirements are different. For example, state governments have put time limits on how long people may wait to file mesothelioma lawsuits. This is called a statute of limitations. Each state has a different time period when it’s OK to file a mesothelioma lawsuit. On average, this time can range from 1 to 3 years either after the date of a person’s diagnosis, or death from mesothelioma.
The most common reason our mesothelioma lawyers can’t help people file a mesothelioma lawsuit is because the deadline to file has passed. Please don’t make this common mistake.
