Statute of Limitations

Timely Filing of Mesothelioma Lawsuits

We take cases nationwide, and the laws are different in each state. This includes a statute of limitations that applies to filing a lawsuit. Our lawyers have brought personal injury claims on behalf of men and women who were diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestos-related lung cancer, as well as wrongful death suits on behalf of spouses and children left behind when the disease proved fatal. 

Beware the Statute of Limitations

The clock starts when there is a preliminary or confirmed diagnosis of mesothelioma. If a lawsuit is not filed before the deadline in that jurisdiction, the victim or family may be barred from recovering monetary damages. Thus is it critical to contact a knowledgeable attorney as early as possible.

Responsive, Nationwide Representation in Asbestos Litigation

Our firm will attempt to file the lawsuit in Illinois, because of a standing arrangement in the Madison County court system giving priority to mesothelioma cases. The court recognizes that patients have a short life expectancy after diagnosis, and expedites trial dates so that victims will hopefully live to give testimony and see justice. 

Attorney Jay Throneberry and his team works fast to trace the asbestos exposures in our client's past so that we can file suit and obtain compensation for the urgently needed medical treatment.  If you or your loved one has symptoms of mesothelioma or asbestos-related lung cancer, we urge you to see a family physician or specialist immediately. Then contact us soon after to start the legal process.

Aggressive, Compassionate Representation

Call 888-506-1131 for a free consultation. We will travel to you to discuss your case and your legal remedies, and we take attorney fees only if we are successful in securing your compensation.

The Statute of Limitations Guide below is generic for each state.  As such it is critical to contact us as early as possible to determine how the law applies to your mesothelioma or asbestos-related case.
