For many years now, it has been well known that repeated exposure to asbestos could cause some very severe health complications. Because the majority of asbestos-related side effects do not show up for 20, 30, 40, or even 50 years after exposure, lawsuits may still be filed on your behalf even if your last exposure to asbestos was 50 years ago.
Do I Have An Asbestos/Mesothelioma Lawsuit?
Many asbestos manufacturers and distributors knew for decades that asbestos was hazardous, yet made a business decision not to warn people of those hazards. As a result, you may have a right of recovery against those manufacturers. As stated earlier, keep in mind that, even if your last exposure to asbestos was many years ago, you may still have a valid claim. The relevant time for the statute of limitations in most states is 2 years after diagnosis, not 2 years after exposure. In both Massachusetts and Rhode Island, the relevant time period is 3 years after diagnosis.
Compensation from an asbestos lawsuit can help provide financial assistance for the costs of medical treatment and provide compensation for your pain and suffering. Your compensation will be determined by factors such as lost income, the laws in your state, and the parties responsible. Compensation for mesothelioma can vary from several thousand to several million dollars. Getting the highest possible compensation for your damages requires tough and experienced personal injury attorneys. If you suffer from asbestosis or mesothelioma, we can help.
