Who Can File a Mesothelioma Claim?

Individuals who can file a mesothelioma claim normally into one of two groups. One group includes asbestos-exposure victims diagnosed with mesothelioma. The second group includes surviving loved ones of people who passed away because of mesothelioma, including spouses, children, certain other family members, and legal representatives of decedents’ estates.

Types of Mesothelioma Claims

Mesothelioma lawsuits seek financial compensation for personal injuries or wrongful deaths caused by the deadly disease. In most cases, there are two routes toward securing compensation after receiving a mesothelioma diagnosis. You can either file an asbestos lawsuit or pursue an asbestos trust fund claim.

Asbestos Lawsuits

After our asbestos firm reviews your case, we can file a mesothelioma lawsuit to get your asbestos exposure lawsuit started in the appropriate court.

In most cases, personal injury lawsuits are settled before they reach trial. However, filing a lawsuit may be necessary if a fair out-of-court settlement cannot be reached. We have what it takes to represent you both at the negotiation table and before a judge and jury.

Trust Fund Claims

Aside from filing an asbestos exposure lawsuit, you could also pursue compensation from an asbestos trust fund. Many companies filed for bankruptcy as the risk associated with their asbestos products started generating mesothelioma cases seeking compensation. However, courts forced many of these companies to set aside funds in trusts to compensate victims. 

Pursuing an asbestos trust fund claim requires following specific filing procedures established for the relevant trust and working with administrators to obtain your compensation. The help of a mesothelioma lawyer can be useful in identifying the asbestos trust applicable to you and assisting with the filing process.

What Is the Compensation for Mesothelioma?

It is difficult to predict and impossible to guarantee the precise amount of compensation you may receive. However, it is not uncommon for mesothelioma victims to receive millions of dollars in compensation.

Our mesothelioma lawyers normally work on a contingency fee basis. This means our fee is determined as a prenegotiated percentage of the compensation we secure on your behalf. It also means there are no surprises down the road, and you pay nothing unless we win your case.

A law known as the statute of limitations sets a deadline for filing your claim. Though the deadline varies from state to state, you will only have a few years from the date of your diagnosis to file. Failure to file before the correct deadline passes results in your case being dismissed in court. Therefore, do not wait to consult an experienced mesothelioma attorney and take legal action.
