Mesothelioma Compensation Options for California Residents

If you or your loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you have multiple paths available for compensation. With over 100 years of combined legal experience, our dedicated Los Angeles mesothelioma lawyers can identify all your legal options and pursue compensation from each available source.

Mesothelioma Lawsuits

In a mesothelioma lawsuit, you can pursue damages for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, and other losses. You may also be eligible for punitive damages. A lawsuit seeks to hold accountable those parties responsible for your asbestos exposure. Potential defendants include asbestos product manufacturers and distributors, building contractors, property owners, and others.

We have recovered over $4 billion in settlements and verdicts in mesothelioma lawsuits. Our asbestos litigation work over the years has allowed us to accumulate detailed knowledge of the asbestos industry. We can identify the companies responsible for your asbestos exposure and file suit on your behalf.

Wrongful Death Lawsuits

If your loved one died of mesothelioma, your family may be eligible to pursue the following damages through a mesothelioma wrongful death lawsuit:

State law also allows you to combine a wrongful death action with a survival action, which allows you to pursue the damages the deceased could have recovered had they survived, including compensation for their pain, suffering, and financial losses.  

California’s wrongful death law allows the spouse, domestic partner, children, and, in some cases, grandchildren to pursue wrongful death damages. If the victim dies without any of these survivors, wrongful death proceeds are recoverable by the next of kin according to the laws of succession in the state. A personal representative of the deceased or an eligible family member may file the wrongful death action.

Asbestos Trust Fund Claims

Many of the manufacturers of asbestos products filed for bankruptcy protection as the public started holding them accountable for the harms of asbestos exposure. Bankruptcy shields businesses from lawsuits for wrongdoing that occurred beforehand. However, the courts required bankrupt companies with asbestos liabilities to establish asbestos trust funds to compensate asbestos victims and their survivors. 

Our experienced California asbestos lawyers in Los Angeles can determine your eligibility and file your asbestos trust fund claims. 

VA Disability Claims

If you were exposed to asbestos during military service, you may be eligible for benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs. The VA offers health care free of copays and deductibles and monthly disability compensation to veterans with asbestos-related illnesses. Family members, caregivers, and survivors may also be eligible for VA compensation. We can determine your eligibility for benefits and file your VA claim

California Statute of Limitations for Asbestos Lawsuits

The statute of limitations sets the deadline for filing an asbestos-exposure lawsuit. In California, you generally have two years from the date of your diagnosis to file a mesothelioma lawsuit or two years from your loved one’s death to bring a wrongful death action. Asbestos trust fund claims have separate deadlines, but these often match the deadlines for filing suit. There is no time limit to file a VA claim.

Regardless of the deadline, involving an attorney as soon as possible is critical. Before filing your lawsuit, your attorney will need time to identify all your sources of asbestos exposure and gather evidence to support your claim. If you miss the deadline, you could lose your right to pursue compensation through a lawsuit or trust fund claim.
