FAQ

WHAT LEGAL OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE TO INDIVIDUALS INJURED BY ASBESTOS?

If you have been diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease (asbestosis, lung cancer, mesothelioma), you can bring a legal claim against the manufacturers, sellers, and installers of asbestos products. Filing a legal claim can help you address the medical and financial problems that asbestos-related diseases can cause victims and their families.

IF I DON’T REMEMBER HOW I WAS EXPOSED TO ASBESTOS, WHAT CAN I DO?

There are many people who suffer from asbestos-related diseases but cannot recall how or where they were exposed to asbestos. In fact, even your doctor may not be entirely familiar with the wide range of spectrum of asbestos exposures. This is especially true because asbestos diseases are latent; it takes years for the symptoms and injuries caused by asbestos to appear.

ARE THERE TIME LIMITS FOR FILING A LEGAL CLAIM?

There are laws in every state which limit the time for individuals and their families to file claims for mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis. If you do not file your case within these time limits, you will likely be barred from receiving compensation for your injuries. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, lung cancer, or asbestosis, it is important that you contact an attorney immediately.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR MY LAWSUIT TO BE COMPLETED?

Experienced attorneys specializing in asbestos litigation will make every effort to advance your case as quickly as possible.
