Families of Victims
Losing a parent, spouse, or family member to mesothelioma is always a traumatic experience. Seeing his or her health decline so quickly with little warning is shocking, though the asbestos fibers responsible for the disease likely laid dormant for decades.
It’s even harder to accept your loved one’s passing knowing that it was preventable and due to the negligence of a company that understood and ignored the risks. Money can never bring your family member back, but filing for financial compensation can hold these companies accountable and help pay for medical bills, lost income, funeral expenses, and untold pain and suffering.
Wrongful Death Suit
It’s easy to feel powerless, but you can take action. In most states, a family member can file a wrongful death suit against the negligent company. You don’t need conclusive evidence to begin filing a claim; your attorney will help you gather evidence and build a strong case. Learn more about hiring an attorney.
Statute of Limitations
Many states require you to file a wrongful death suit within a certain time period of your loved one’s passing. You should discuss your case with a lawyer as soon as possible to ensure you can still receive compensation for your family member’s medical bills, lost income, suffering, and tragically avoidable death.
