You may be able to recover large monetary damages if you file the appropriate mesothelioma lawsuit for your instance. Do not hesitate to register a claim after being diagnosed and obtaining treatment from your doctor. For these cases, certain states have one-year statutes of limitations after diagnosis.
With an asbestos-related mesothelioma case, there are a few different lawsuits you can file:
- personal injury lawsuit
- wrongful death claim
- class action lawsuit
Mesothelioma Personal Injury Lawsuits
Personal injury lawsuits account for the majority of mesothelioma claims. Plaintiffs in these lawsuits have been diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma and are seeking compensation from the defendant for exposing them to asbestos.
For decades, asbestos-related personal injury cases have been filed. You may be able to recover large damages if you can prove the defendant was negligent in exposing you to asbestos. This could include medical bills, lost wages, and other losses related to mesothelioma.
Mesothelioma Wrongful Death Claims
Wrongful death cases are a form of personal injury claim that tries to prove fault if your loved one was exposed to asbestos and died from mesothelioma. Because of the loss of life, wrongful death cases can result in large compensation. Spouses, children, and anybody else who was financially reliant on the deceased can bring these claims.
Mesothelioma Class Action Lawsuits
Although a class action lawsuit may come to mind when a large number of people are afflicted by the same problem, mesothelioma cases are no longer filed as such. Instead, you can file a personal injury case as an individual. You may be able to join multidistrict litigation if your claim is justified (MDL).
A federal court in Eastern Pennsylvania houses the main MDL for mesothelioma claims. A MDL’s purpose is to bring together similar cases into a single court with a single presiding judge. Unlike class action lawsuits, where individual claims are consolidated into a single case, MDL cases are kept distinct.
