If you would like to recover compensation for your mesothelioma or asbestos lung cancer diagnosis or for a loved one, our Mesothelioma lawyer can help you file a lawsuit against the manufacturer or any combination of entities responsible for exposing you to asbestos. They violated your rights as a worker who handled or operated in the vicinity of asbestos, and we’re here to get justice for you.
Typically, these lawsuits are filed against the manufacturers, installers, and implementers of the substance or against companies responsible for distributing, selling, or reselling them. In many cases, defendants in these lawsuits prefer to settle before their trials even begin for fear of how a jury or judge might penalize them with high award amounts should they decide to favor the plaintiffs.
On the other hand, plaintiffs sometimes prefer to take their cases through the trial process in hopes that what the defendants fear will transpire. Both sides take risks with deciding whether to settle or go to trial. To help with these monumental decisions, we can provide you with legal representation.
If you are considering filing a mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer lawsuit, you should be aware of the urgency that might come into play with your case. Every state has its statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit for mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer. If you fail to file within this time limit, the law will likely bar you from recovering compensation.
If your loved one died from mesothelioma or asbestos lung cancer, you may also be entitled to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit. The typical statute of limitations for wrongful death is three years, but some states may give you a longer or a shorter time.

Proving asbestos exposure is crucial in a mesothelioma case; gathering the right evidence can strengthen your claim significantly. One key piece of evidence is imaging scans that illustrate the extent of the cancer. Imaging techniques like X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs can provide visual evidence of mesothelioma tumors and help establish a link between asbestos exposure and disease development.
Blood tests can also play a crucial role in supporting your mesothelioma diagnosis. Certain biomarkers associated with mesothelioma can be detected in blood samples. Elevated levels of these biomarkers can indicate the presence of mesothelioma and can be used as evidence to demonstrate a connection between asbestos exposure and disease development.
In addition to medical evidence, a physician’s statement explicitly linking your asbestos exposure to your mesothelioma diagnosis is vital. This statement should be from a qualified medical professional experienced in diagnosing and treating mesothelioma cases. The physician’s experience and detailed explanation of the causal relationship between asbestos exposure and your diagnosis can provide powerful court evidence, reinforcing your claim’s validity.
