Statute of Limitations in Asbestos Cases

Anyone who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma should seek the best legal representation, as well as the best medical treatment, as soon as possible. After a diagnosis, in order not to lose your important legal rights, you should contact our firm and talk to a lawyer experienced in mesothelioma cases as soon you can.

Some people may not realize that there is a time limit for bringing a lawsuit after a mesothelioma diagnosis. This law is called the Statute of Limitations. All 50 states have statutes of limitations. They set forth the time limit for a person with mesothelioma to file their lawsuit. If you go even one day past this time limit, then no matter how meritorious your case is, it will be dismissed from court.

Naturally, if you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or if a loved one has passed away from mesothelioma, filing a lawsuit is probably the last thing you are thinking about. However, if you do not contact a lawyer, your valuable legal rights will be lost.

Every state has a different statute of limitations. For any particular case, it is critical to consult the specific statute of limitations that applies in that state. Many states allow two years to file a lawsuit from the date of the mesothelioma diagnosis. Thus, it is important to contact a lawyer with significant experience in representing mesothelioma clients. An experienced lawyer can file a lawsuit quickly, and work efficiently and effectively with you on your case.
