As a leading national mesothelioma law firm, this is a question we hear quite a bit. Most of our mesothelioma clients have never even filed a lawsuit, let along a lawsuit that is as complicated as a mesothelioma lawsuit. Our experience in dealing with mesothelioma lawsuits allows us to make the process as simple as possible.
The news that a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma will greatly impact a family. This rare cancer due to asbestos exposure usually is developed in blue collar workers, veterans and those that lived or worked in homes that contained asbestos. The companies that used asbestos in their products knew about the dangers, but chose profits over safety.
We find that most families looking to file a mesothelioma lawsuit don’t necessarily want to file a lawsuit, but due to the expense of treating the disease they have to. By filing a mesothelioma lawsuit a family can eliminate the financial hardships and allow the family to focus on treating the disease. Covering the medical expenses alleviates one of main concerns for families that may not have the financial means to afford the best medical care.
One thing that mesothelioma patients and their family’s usually do not know is that there are time constraints to when they can file a mesothelioma lawsuit. Each state has a statute of limitations, which means there is a certain time frame in which you can file a mesothelioma lawsuit. We know the statute of limitations for each state and how long a patient and family have to file a lawsuit. Our advice for families that have a loved one who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, is to file a claim as soon as possible.
