Why File a Mesothelioma Lawsuit?
There are many valid reasons to file a mesothelioma lawsuit against a company that wrongfully exposed you to asbestos. Below is a list of what motivates some clients to file suit:
Accountability: Many insurers and asbestos companies knew about the dangers of asbestos for years, yet some continued to expose workers to the carcinogen. This unfortunate truth has been thoroughly documented and proven by internal records at many well-known corporations that manufactured asbestos-containing products.
Asbestos is still legal in the United States: Despite more than a century of well-documented research showing that asbestos exposure leads to severe health complications, asbestos is still not banned in the U.S. Beginning in the 1970s, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) imposed bans on certain asbestos-containing materials and imposed stiff regulation of others. The EPA also banned many asbestos products in 1989 under the Toxic Substance Control Act, but most of the ban was overturned on appeal in 1991.
Medical bills and lost funds: Medical treatments for asbestos-related illnesses are costly. Many mesothelioma victims drain their savings and retirement accounts to pay for life-extending care.
Mesothelioma law exists to help victims of asbestos exposure. When it comes to filing a mesothelioma lawsuit after a diagnosis, time is of the essence. Some states set a certain period of time for filing a lawsuit after being diagnosed with the disease.
