What’s the problem?
Over the years, many people who have worked with asbestos have filed mesothelioma lawsuits and have successfully claimed millions of dollars in compensation. Anyone who has contracted mesothelioma as result of exposure to asbestos may be eligible to file a mesothelioma lawsuit and should contact a legal specialist as early as possible.
Those who may be eligible when it comes to filing a mesothelioma lawsuit are people who have contracted the cancer as a result of direct exposure to asbestos, those that have contracted mesothelioma as a result of secondary exposure, and those that have lost loved ones as a result of asbestos-related cancer.
Although you may think that the actions taken by corporations that may have led to the development of mesothelioma by many people amount to criminal acts of negligence and indifference, a mesothelioma lawsuit falls under the legal category of torts, or personal injury law. This is actually to your advantage, because the standard of proof is less than that of criminal cases.
The time an individual has to file a claim varies from state to state, but generally the time limit is one to two years from diagnosis. It is important that you check on the time limitation for your state and act within the limitations, otherwise you may not be eligible to claim. If you are claiming on behalf of the deceased, time limitations still apply and it is probably even more important to act quickly because of the time limits and the research required by the lawyer.
