How to File a Mesothelioma Claim

If you or a dear one was diagnosed with mesothelioma, you might have the right to file a claim and recover compensation from negligent parties. Though mesothelioma compensation cannot undo what happened, it can help with, among other things, the high cost of treatment and provide financial security. By seeking compensation, you can hold the people or companies that caused your or your loved one’s illness accountable.

Why File a Mesothelioma Claim?

Mesothelioma compensation can help pay for, among other things, the following;

  • Medical expenses (both past and future)
  • Counseling or therapy
  • Costs associated with hiring caretakers or a home help
  • Everyday living expenses
  • Prescriptions and medicine
  • Physical therapy
  • Lost wages

If you lost someone to mesothelioma because of the negligence of an individual or company, you might be eligible to recover compensation for funeral and burial costs.

How to File a Mesothelioma Claim

There is no one-shoe-fits-all approach to the mesothelioma claims process, as every case is different. However, the following are some of the essential steps of filing a mesothelioma claim:

Step #1: Contact an Attorney

One of the most important steps before filing a mesothelioma claim is hiring a law firm like Throneberry Law Group, which comprises people who are dedicated to helping mesothelioma patients and their families. Hiring a lawyer committed to fighting for mesothelioma patients and their families gives you a good chance of achieving a positive outcome.

Our attorneys understand how to prepare a strong case to ensure you recover the maximum compensation possible.

Step #2: Gather Evidence

Before filing a mesothelioma claim, you need to gather evidence. Collecting evidence to support a mesothelioma claim can be challenging, as most mesothelioma patients were exposed to asbestos decades ago. However, a skilled attorney with the resources necessary to locate specific evidence can help.

The attorneys at Throneberry Law Group have the experience and resources necessary to locate specific employment documents, medical records, and other pieces of evidence that can help support your claim.

Step #3: File Your Mesothelioma Claim

After you have hired an attorney and your attorney has helped you gather evidence, they will try to get the responsible parties to pay voluntarily. If they refuse, your attorney will file your claim.

It is vital to note that you have limited time to file a mesothelioma claim. Based on the statute of limitations in the state you are filing your case, you could have one year, two years, three years, four years, five years, or six years to file your claim. However, it is always best to act quickly.

Step #4: Negotiate a Settlement

If the defendant makes an offer, your attorney can help you negotiate for more if it is a low offer. Often, the initial offer is a low one.

Step #5: Fight in Court

Finally, if the defendant wants to go to trial, your attorney will prepare your case for trial and fight for you in court.
