Asbestos is a toxic substance frequently used in automotive parts, construction materials, and other industrial products that are linked to mesothelioma cancer. Despite awareness of its dangers, asbestos is not entirely banned in the United States. The 2016 amendment to the Toxic Substances Control Act enhanced the Environmental Protection Agency’s authority to oversee asbestos, yet it remains in use in some products. This ongoing presence contributes to the diagnosis of approximately 3,000 asbestos-related diseases each year.

Mesothelioma lawsuits are designed to hold responsible the companies that negligently exposed individuals to asbestos, leading to their diagnosis of this deadly cancer. At Throneberry Law Group, our legal team provides aggressive legal advocacy to ensure our clients receive the just compensation they deserve throughout this challenging time. If you or a loved one is grappling with mesothelioma, do not hesitate to contact our seasoned mesothelioma lawyers to learn what legal options may be available to you.

Who Can File a Mesothelioma Lawsuit?

In general, anyone exposed to asbestos can file a lawsuit against the distributors and manufacturers of asbestos-containing products.

Veterans, especially those with service backgrounds in the Navy, are disproportionately affected by mesothelioma, a consequence of asbestos exposure encountered on naval vessels and within shipbuilding facilities. Other fields of work at risk of asbestos exposure include those working in construction companies, power plants, automotive repair shops, and oil refineries.

Essential Aspects of a Mesothelioma Lawsuit

The legal process for mesothelioma claims can be complex, involving thorough investigation and documentation of asbestos exposure, diagnosis, and related expenses. Pinpointing asbestos exposure as the cause of mesothelioma requires various forms of evidence that play a pivotal role in these cases, including:

  • The impact of the illness on the individual’s daily activities
  • The financial burden of medical and related expenses
  • New disabilities arising from the disease
  • Medical records and reports
  • Employment history detailing potential exposure scenarios

It’s important to note the statute of limitations allows a timeframe of two years for victims to bring forward a mesothelioma claim. In cases where an individual succumbs to asbestos exposure, their family members have the same two-year deadline to file a wrongful death claim.

What Is the Process for Mesothelioma Lawsuits?

Initiating a mesothelioma lawsuit often starts with an attempt to settle out of court. If both parties reach an agreement, the mesothelioma victims receive compensation without proceeding with legal action. However, if negotiations falter, the case escalates to a lawsuit.

The next step is the discovery phase, where each side collects evidence to support their case.

Victims may discuss their employment history and personal life impacts, while defendants will be questioned about their role in the exposure. The trial follows the discovery phase.

At this stage, both sides present their evidence and examine witnesses to prove how asbestos exposure occurred. The jury then determines the defendant’s responsibility and the compensation amount.

What Types of Compensation Are Mesothelioma Victims Eligible to Receive?

The compensation awarded in mesothelioma lawsuits can cover a wide range of needs, including:

  • Medical bills for treatments, including surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation
  • Lost wages and loss of earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium for affected family members
  • Punitive damages in some cases to punish negligent parties

Our legal team at Throneberry Law Group provides our clients with professional and empathetic assistance, ensuring they receive the full compensation they deserve.
