Statute of Limitations: A Deadline to Taking Action

Michigan has a unique set of laws called statutes of limitations that restrict how long mesothelioma patients and family members have to file a lawsuit. Once this deadline passes, you won’t have the opportunity to hold asbestos companies accountable for their negligence and your illness again.

If you’d like to talk to a mesothelioma lawyer in Michigan about a potential case, we are available to meet with you in your home or a location of your choosing.

Asbestos Exposure and Mesothelioma in Michigan

Michigan is home to the nation’s auto industry — an industry that has used asbestos for decades. Auto products that have contained or currently contain asbestos include:

  • Brake pads and linings
  • Clutch components
  • Valves
  • Gaskets

While the EPA has recently raised awareness of automotive industry asbestos exposure, very little was done to protect auto workers in the late twentieth century from the dangers of asbestos. This lack of oversight in the automotive industry back then has led to some of the largest verdicts in asbestos case history being issued against major Michigan auto manufacturers.

Our previous experience representing mesothelioma victims in a variety of Michigan industries, automotive included, is important because it means we are familiar with Michigan job sites where asbestos exposure occurred.

Our experienced attorneys have helped our past clients identify their asbestos exposures and they are ready to help you and your family as well.
