Are you eligible for compensation through a Lawsuit?
If you are a victim of Mesothelioma, your eligibility for a multi-million dollar award will depend on several issues:
a) Statute of Limitations
Your first concern is to file within the statutory deadlines. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Mesothelioma, you must file within a few years, However some of the Trust funds provide longer time periods that your attorney can help determine.
If you are the executor of the estate of a person who has died from an asbestos-related disease, you may be eligible to file a claim but the claim must be within a short time of the death. A family member exposed in a secondary manner (for example, through asbestos fibers brought home on clothes by a parent who worked in an asbestos environment) may also be eligible to file a claim.
Because of the statute of limitation issues, you should contact our attorneys as soon as possible regarding your eligibility for a settlement package.
b) Identify Your Asbestos Exposure
If you have Mesothelioma, that alone is not grounds to collect a large settlement. In order to prove your claim (against manufacturers, distributors, and/or contractors) it must be established that you had been exposed to the specific asbestos product at a specific location. If you do not remember the name of the manufacturer of the particular asbestos product that was used on your job site (that caused your asbestos-related disease), our experts can find out for you. In many cases the asbestos product used at a particular work place has already been established in previous cases and the companies cannot deny your claim. In all cases you should contact us, as we may be able to discover the product that caused the disease.
c) Responsible Parties
Once we discover where you were exposed to asbestos, our legal researchers will find the responsible parties who are capable of paying your claim. For a claim to be made, our attorneys must be able to locate a company or entity that is ultimately responsible for the cancer that is still in business in some form or another. In many cases insurance or bankrupt companies set up large multi billion dollar funds called Trusts that manage assets whose sole purpose is to compensate Mesothelioma and asbestos disease patients.
