Mesothelioma lawsuits

Every year, thousands of people across the United States are diagnosed with mesothelioma due to working with asbestos and they and their loved ones may be able to file an asbestos personal injury lawsuit and recover significant damages.

The lawsuit could be filed either against the company that the person was working for, or the company that manufactured the item with asbestos or an insurance company or an asbestos personal injury victims’ trust fund which is in place for companies that have stopped trading or become bankrupt.

Mesothelioma will usually become apparent up to 40 years after exposure and many states allow people to wait for up the five years after diagnosis to file a lawsuit, but in California you only have one year, so you need to move quickly. If a spouse or relative has died from the disease, then the heirs usually have between one and three years after the death the file a claim for wrongful death.

If you have been diagnosed with any an asbestos related disease, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. To find out how we can help you recover for your asbestos related claim, contact the Law Office of Brayton Purcell, LLP at (800) 598-0314 immediately, or contact us online for a free consultation.
