By: Anapol Weiss

A mesothelioma diagnosis is devastating. Victims and their families dealing with this situation may feel powerless, but they can get assistance and take action in order to obtain justice and much needed compensation.

Below is a breakdown of the lawsuit process and common questions about filing a claim.

Who Can File a Mesothelioma Lawsuit?

Mesothelioma sufferers and their family may be able to file a mesothelioma lawsuit to seek damages such as lost wages, medical expenses and pain and suffering.

How Does the Mesothelioma Lawsuit Process Work?

To maximize a person’s success in court, the mesothelioma team at Anapol Weiss will investigate several vital pieces of information including:

  1. The party responsible for your asbestos exposure
  2. When the asbestos exposure occurred
  3. The location of the exposure, i.e. construction sites, mines, shipyards, etc.

An experienced attorney will work closely with clients and use this information to build a strong case.

Why Should I File a Mesothelioma Lawsuit?

While scientists knew about the risks of asbestos as far back as the 1930s, industries continued to use it through the 1970s. If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, there’s a chance somebody endangered your health for the sake of making a profit. 

In addition to obtaining justice, you and your family will need assistance in the months and years to come to deal with the unexpected costs resulting from mesothelioma.
