Mesothelioma Lawsuit Statute of Limitations

How Long do I Have to File a Claim?

A statute of limitations applies to any lawsuit. The statute of limitations is the amount of time a claimant has to file a suit. Once the statute of limitations has run out, the victim can no longer file a lawsuit.

What is the Statute of Limitations for a Mesothelioma Lawsuit?

With mesothelioma lawsuits the statute of limitations varies from state to state. Mesothelioma lawsuit statutes of limitation often differ from the statutes that apply to other types of personal injury claims because the latency period of this type of cancer is so long. Patients can end their asbestos exposure years before they show any mesothelioma symptoms, so the statute of limitations for a mesothelioma lawsuit usually begins at the time of diagnosis. Though the statute of limitations for a mesothelioma lawsuit is different in every state, the average mesothelioma victim has 1 to 2 years to file a claim.

Mesothelioma Wrongful Death Lawsuit Statutes of Limitations

In cases where the mesothelioma patient has passed away, his or her surviving family members may choose to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the parties responsible for the decedent’s exposure to asbestos. As mesothelioma is an entirely preventable type of cancer, and many employers and manufacturers knew of the risks of asbestos exposure for the last century, these negligent parties can be held accountable for the death of their employees and customers due to an asbestos-related disease. As with the statute of limitations for a mesothelioma lawsuit, the statute of limitations for a wrongful death lawsuit varies from state to state.
