What to Expect in a Mesothelioma Lawsuit

Take Immediate Action in Filing for a Claim

When preparing to file a claim or pursue a lawsuit for mesothelioma, it is important to remember that each state has a statute of limitations for filing. In West Virginia, individuals have two years from diagnosis to file a claim, or two years from death to file for wrongful death. The first step in a mesothelioma lawsuit is to take immediate action.

Toxic tort claims may be difficult to pursue alone because of the complicated legal issues involved. An attorney experienced in toxic tort claims and personal injury cases may help you move your case forward quickly and effectively. With proper care, you may be able to receive the maximum compensation possible in your case.

Handle Your Claim Correctly & Efficiently

The length of the lawsuit depends several factors, including:

  • The processes of filing and discovery.
  • Whether a case goes to trial.
  • Whether an appeal is filed.

It is difficult to say how long a mesothelioma lawsuit may take. If a case is handled quickly, it could take as little as a few months. However, a difficult case could take much longer to resolve. In circumstances where the person filing a mesothelioma lawsuit is in poor health, legal processes may be expedited.

A personal injury attorney may help see to the needs of clients and ensure a case reaches a favorable solution. Many mesothelioma lawsuits are settled without going to trial. Without effective legal guidance, a case might drag on without yielding results.
