If you’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma, it is likely you have a legal claim against an existing mesothelioma trust or for mesothelioma litigation. If you can answer yes to the following questions for yourself or a deceased loved one, then you have a mesothelioma claim:
- Were you diagnosed by a medical professional with mesothelioma?
- Did you have a tissue biopsy?
- In 1985 or prior, were you working in the United States, its territories or possessions or serving in the United States military?
- In wrongful death claims, has your loved one passed away within the past 3 years?
Why am I Entitled to a Mesothelioma Claim?
Mesothelioma is a rare and fatal form of cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos. Despite being aware of the dangers of asbestos, employers and manufacturers chose not to issue warnings to customers or employees, allowing them to continue using this inexpensive and useful material.
Because the companies knowingly exposed people to this dangerous substance without any kind of warning or protection, the courts have determined that those who were subject to asbestos exposure and who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma can file a claim for negligence against those responsible. Similarly, survivors of those who have died of mesothelioma are able to file wrongful death claims.
