Common Questions About Mesothelioma Law
If you have a mesothelioma injury, you may be eligible for compensation from an asbestos company. But mesothelioma law can be complex. Here are some common questions and answers about mesothelioma law. If you have additional questions about mesothelioma law or mesothelioma law firms, please ask them when you call us.
Q: Under mesothelioma law, how long can I wait to file my case?
State laws mandate certain time limits on how long you have to file a mesothelioma civil case before it is “too late” to do so. These time limits are called statutes of limitations.
Under a statute of limitations, you have a certain time period from your initial mesothelioma diagnosis to pursue asbestos litigation. Once you've received a diagnosis of mesothelioma, don’t wait to contact us. Remember, there is no obligation or cost to you for calling. It’s a free consultation and a chance for you to ask questions about mesothelioma law and the legal process and for us to evaluate your case to determine if you may be entitled to mesothelioma compensation.
Q: Will I have to testify at trial?
We approach every mesothelioma case as though it will go to trial. This way, we are prepared to go to court if that should happen. In the event that a trial occurs, our mesothelioma lawyers are trained to make this process as easy on you and your family as possible.
However, some of our cases are settled out of court. If you are offered a mesothelioma settlement, you will have the opportunity to accept it and end the lawsuit, or to decline the settlement and proceed to trial.
Q: Will I have to travel?
Our mesothelioma attorneys and team members are happy to travel to see you. While we cannot guarantee that you will not have to travel, it’s unlikely that you will.
Q: How long will my potential mesothelioma case take?
Many courts recognize the effect that mesothelioma has on victims and families and they will try to expedite timeframes as a result. Still, it’s important to act quickly. If you wait too long, you may miss your state's deadline to file a mesothelioma lawsuit.
