Can I Sue for Compensation If I Have Mesothelioma?

Discuss Your Legal Rights

Bottom line, if you believe you or a loved one was exposed to asbestos leading to mesothelioma or lung cancer, it is critical to act quickly. That is because the moment you are diagnosed, the clock is starting against you due to the statute of limitations. Once the statute of limitations has expired, any claim you may have had against negligent parties is forfeited.

Victims diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer caused by asbestos can sue for damages. These damages can include:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Emotional damages
  • Pain and suffering

If you have a lost a loved one due to mesothelioma, you may still have a wrongful death claim. A wrongful death claim is one that is filed on behalf of a loved one. Damages can include medical bills, loss of consortium, funeral expenses as well as any pain and suffering.
