Mesothelioma Claims

Mesothelioma book, stethoscope, and clipboard with prescription on a table - Mesothelioma ClaimsUnderstanding the rules, procedures, and statute of limitations on Mesothelioma claims.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Mesothelioma after exposure to asbestos, you have the right to claim compensation for the costs and harm that you have and will endure. This compensation is not automatic, however, and requires you to follow a certain number of rules and procedures to obtain it; most notably, you have to file within the statute of limitations.

The statute of limitations is the duration of time you have to file a claim before it expires and you are unable to get compensation.

This rule is one of the key reasons you will want to work with an attorney to help you file your claim for mesothelioma compensation.

What Is The Statute Of Limitations For Mesothelioma Claims

The statute of limitations for filing Mesothelioma claims, after diagnosis of the cancer can vary from state to state. It is important to remember that the clock starts ticking as soon as you learn of your diagnosis, not after the exposure to the asbestos that probably caused it.

This deadline also applies to a wrongful death lawsuit if you are filing after the passing of a loved one because of mesothelioma. In this case, it is no longer from the time of diagnosis but the time of their death.

Not only is mesothelioma an aggressive and very dangerous cancer but preparing and filing a claim thoroughly to ensure you get that vital compensation takes time.

This is why it is vital to contact an attorney like Van Robichaux as soon as you receive your mesothelioma diagnosis in Louisiana.

When Can I Make A Mesothelioma Claim?

You can make a claim for compensation if you have been diagnosed with Mesothelioma and have had some measure of asbestos exposure at any time in the past.

Mesothelioma is a particularly devastating cancer which affects the mesothelium, which is a crucial protective membrane around many internal organs. It has been proven to be caused by asbestos, a popular insulant that has long since been outlawed in new constructions. Older buildings, however, and those who have had to work in, around, or in their renovation, may still contain it. Even small amounts, such as the trace quantities brought home on a spouse’s clothes, could be enough to cause cancer.

No matter who you are or where you have worked, it is always worth reaching out to an attorney to begin filing a mesothelioma claim as soon as you have been diagnosed with this cancer.

How Can I File A Mesothelioma Claim In Louisiana?

In order to file a claim, you and your attorney will have to work through all of your medical history and workplace records, even those of your spouse, as well as other places you may have spent a significant amount of time, such as the buildings you lived, worked, ate, or even worshipped in.

Once your attorney has established the most likely asbestos connection and who can be held liable for your cancer, they will be able to file the actual claim.

Doing so also requires totaling all past and current medical expenses and other losses due to the mesothelioma as well as future costs and harms caused by the cancer.

This is no easy undertaking, however. In addition to meeting the statute of limitations deadline, it is one of the main reasons why you will need an attorney with experience working on these specific kinds of cases.

Fortunately, Louisiana has an excellent Mesothelioma claims lawyer who can handle the claims process and any issues that arise, or questions you may have.
