Diagnosed with asbestos disease? Don't wait to seek legal help

When people are diagnosed with mesothelioma, asbestos lung cancer or another asbestos-related illness, it often comes as a surprise. Cancers caused by the deadly fiber seem like something that only happened in the past, before most asbestos products were banned in the U.S. Surely people aren’t still being diagnosed with these illnesses today.

Unfortunately, they are. For example, while mesothelioma is considered rare, around 2,000 people are newly diagnosed with mesothelioma every year in the United States alone.

It also isn’t true that most asbestos products are banned in the U.S., and older buildings loaded with the deadly fiber still surround us. The use of asbestos in new motor vehicle brakes was finally prohibited by a law passed in 2010, but it won’t be phased out of new vehicles until 2014. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, a long list of products ranging from roofing felt and vinyl floor tile to clothing can still legally contain asbestos today.

If you’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestos lung cancer, don’t assume it couldn’t be true because you haven’t been exposed to asbestos. Don’t just let it go because you’re not sure where that exposure might have occurred. You have legal rights, and you need to exercise them right away.

In Illinois, the two-year time limit for filing an asbestos lawsuit starts running as soon as two things occur: 1), you know or reasonably should have known of your illness; and 2) you know or should have known it was caused by an unreasonably dangerous product.

Wrongful death cases involving asbestos must be filed within two years of death.

Don’t let the clock run out on your legal right to seek fair compensation for the medical expenses, lost work, pain and suffering you may be experiencing and the harm that was done to you by a faceless corporation. Don’t let your opportunity for justice slip away -- talk to a lawyer experienced with mesothelioma cases so you’ll at least know your rights and options.
