Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers | Romanucci & Blandin
If you worked in a high-risk industry and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or have lost someone to an illness related to asbestos, it is your right to seek compensation from those responsible for your circumstances. It us time to bring those who damaged your life to justice. While financial compensation will not erase your pain, it will alleviate the burden of medical bills, lost income, continued support for loved ones, and could help your situation in many other ways.
The two types of mesothelioma lawsuits are: personal injury and wrongful death. In a personal injury claim, the mesothelioma patient files for damages including medical expenses, loss of income, and pain and suffering. For a wrongful death suit, the survivor of a mesothelioma fatality files a suit.
Your legal right to claim damages can depend on several factors that include:
- Statute of limitations sets a time limit for filing a claim. This begins on the date of your diagnosis and the window of opportunity for making a claim varies from state to state. If you do not file suit within the particular time frame, you will lose your rights to file for damages.
- Although you may have been exposed as far as 50 years ago, it is acknowledged that mesothelioma has a long latency period. The amount of time from exposure to diagnosis does not negate your right to seek compensation; however, the statute of limitations will influence your right to file a claim.
- It is imperative to work with an experienced attorney who will establish and prove that you were exposed to asbestos by a particular product at a certain place by a specific manufacturer. Your attorney works with you to prepare and present this important cause/effect information.
- Our justice system is designed to protect the rights of those wrongly injured. Only a lawyer skilled in mesothelioma cases understands victims’ rights and the legal process to prove that a manufacturer’s negligence caused this situation.
