Legal Options for Individuals with Mesothelioma
Mesothelioma is a serious issue that continues to affect individuals who have been exposed to asbestos for years on end. These workers have spent their careers working with products containing asbestos. Now they’re dealing with the aftermath.
It’s important to understand what legal options exist for those suffering, or for the families of those who have been lost as a result of mesothelioma. Here are some of the things you should know about mesothelioma lawsuits and your rights.
You May Be Able to Seek Compensation
There are a number of situations that come into play when determining whether or not a person is capable of seeking compensation from a potentially negligent party. These are some of the factors that are considered:
- How and where the exposure to asbestos occurred
- Whether or not another party was responsible for the exposure
- When you are officially diagnosed with mesothelioma
It’s often difficult for individuals to figure all this out on their own, so it’s important to hire a legal professional who can work with you and help you determine if you have a legal right to file a claim against the negligent party.
Can Family Members Seek Compensation?
Unfortunately, mesothelioma is a terminal condition and many of the individuals who are diagnosed end up passing away as a result. This doesn’t necessarily negate the opportunity for filing a lawsuit against the responsible party.
For families of the decedent, there may be possible legal action under a wrongful death lawsuit. You must understand the statute of limitations on these types of cases, which typically allow up to two years following the death for the family to take action.
