Throughout the world, including here in Wisconsin, mesothelioma is caused by asbestos exposure. Often, asbestos workers were not adequately warned that their exposure to asbestos could result in this type of deadly cancer that affects the mesothelium layer surrounding internal organs. Therefore, the manufacturer, distributor, supplier or installer of asbestos materials may be legally responsible for the damages incurred by mesothelioma patients and their families. Since the prognosis is poor and only 10% of mesothelioma patients survive five or more years post diagnosis the damages may be significant.
When to File a Wisconsin Mesothelioma Lawsuit
Mesothelioma victims or their survivors have three years from the date they discovered, or should have discovered that they have mesothelioma to file a lawsuit. While it can take decades after asbestos exposure for mesothelioma to develop, many mesothelioma victims find it important to file their lawsuits as soon as possible after they are diagnosed so that they can do everything possible to secure their families financial future while they are still able to do so.
The first step in filing a lawsuit is to contact a Wisconsin mesothelioma lawyer for a free, no obligation consultation. Your attorney will review your work history, medical history and other facts pertinent to your case and advise you on your legal options. You may have the right to sue the manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and / or installers of asbestos materials for your injuries. A mesothelioma lawsuit usually alleges that one or more of these parties had a duty to warn you about the dangers of asbestos, failed to provide you with adequate warnings and that, as a result you developed mesothelioma and you are entitled to damages.
