If you have developed mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease, you most likely will be eligible to receive compensation for your damages.
Many employers knew about the dangers of asbestos exposure since the 1930s, but failed to inform employees about these risks or provide them with the proper safety gear. As a result, many employees were needlessly exposed to the toxic material well into the 1970s, when asbestos use was curtailed in many products.
You may be able to receive compensation in an asbestos claim that will cover:
Care and assistance
Loss of companionship
Pain and suffering
Asbestos claims are highly complex and require the assistance of an experienced asbestos attorney. Often, it takes decades after asbestos exposure before symptoms develop. Furthermore, there are statutes of limitations governing these claims:
You have three years from the date of your diagnosis to file an asbestos or mesothelioma personal injury claim
You have one year from the date of your diagnosis to file a wrongful death claim
Therefore, it is crucial that you act quickly to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
