1 10 Things You Must Know Before You Start a H Mesothelioma Lawsuit

2 1 Who can file for compensation for Mesothelioma? A person who had developed mesothelioma through exposure to asbestos is able to file a mesothelioma lawsuit. A lawsuit can also be filed by a family member or an executor in the event that the person has passed away. A lawsuit can also be filed by a family member who was in close contact with the person who was exposed to asbestos and developed mesothelioma. 2 How long do I have to file my claim? Generally there is a time limit of one to two years from the point of diagnosis. The time limitations vary from state to state, so it is important to check what your state s time limitation is. If you do not act within the time limitations you may not be eligible to claim, therefore it is critical to take action as quickly as possible.

3 3 Are there legal costs to investigate my claim? No. Most law firms with begin investigating your asbestos claim at no financial cost to you or your family. Usually an attorney or investigator will contact you to gather information about you and your work history. From there it will be decided if a mesothelioma lawsuit is recommended. 4 How much will it cost for an attorney to represent me? Again, nothing. You will not have to pay upfront and there is no financial risk on your part in filing a mesothelioma lawsuit. Most mesothelioma lawyers work on a no win no fee basis and take a percentage of the settlement compensation for their fee. Unless you receive compensation, you will not have to pay a penny. 5 How much of a settlement will I get? The amount of your settlement will depend on the specifics of your case and your lawyer will be able to give you a better idea after reviewing the details of your case. But for an idea, past settlements have been hundreds of thousands of dollars and even multi-million dollar payouts.

4 6 Does my Lawyer have to be from my State? There are many lawyers that specialize in mesothelioma lawsuits. Some of the best and most experienced lawyers will likely be from another state. This is quite common and they are use to representing individuals and families from all across the country. Be sure to find the most experienced mesothelioma lawyer, which may not be from your state. 7 Will the lawsuit be filed in my home state? Not necessarily. Often your lawyer will select the state to file your lawsuit in based on the best chance for success and where you will likely receive the highest compensation. Where your lawsuit is filed will make no difference to you other than you could get a much higher payout. 8 Will I have to go to court? Many mesothelioma lawsuits are settled out of court, because this saves both sides money by avoiding costly court time. It is hard to say if you will need to go to court, but most lawyers do everything possible to settle out of court.

5 9 How long does the lawsuit take? The length of time a lawsuit will take can vary. A lot will depend on the amount of research this is required to establish a solid case. This is where an experienced mesothelioma lawyer can greatly expedite the lawsuit. 10 Where can I find a Mesothelioma Lawyer? There are many lawyers that are able to file a mesothelioma lawsuit for you. The key is to find a firm and an attorney that specializes in mesothelioma cases. This experience will greatly increase the success of your case. The easiest way to proceed with getting your questions answered and whether you should begin a lawsuit is to have a no obligation consultation with an attorney. To request a consultation Click Here.
