Claims for Mesothelioma Victims
The basis of every pleural mesothelioma legal claim is that the defendant failed in its duty to ensure the safety of those exposed to an asbestos product. Legal theory about asbestos liability has been well-established for many years now. For instance, asbestos victims have been able to sue manufacturers of asbestos products for failing to warn about the dangers of their products since the landmark case Borel v. Fibreboard Paper Prods. Corp.
Obtaining compensation for asbestos personal injuries isn’t cut and dry. Whether or not you obtain compensation will depend on the specific facts of your case and your ability to navigate the court’s procedural requirements. That’s why it is important to consult a qualified pleural mesothelioma attorney to help you understand the claims filing process.
Understanding the Claims Process
In addition to filing your case with the court, your attorney also handles sending the document to all defendants. Once that happens, more document filings and evidence gathering take place and eventually lead to a trial or possibly a settlement.
Each defendant has a limited amount of time to respond to your complaint with a document known as an answer. A defendant usually uses the answer to deny all of the claims made in the complaint. This filing is usually followed by a motion to dismiss, which points out any failures on your part to state a sufficient legal claim or follow other procedural requirements. If the court grants the motion to dismiss, your case will end.
Otherwise, the parties will continue filing documents with the court to narrow the issues that will be addressed during trial. They will also engage in discovery, which involves gathering more facts, disclosing documents like your medical records and the defendant’s company records, and deposing witnesses. You can expect to be deposed early in your case. Your attorney will seek to have it done in a place, like your home, where you can be comfortable and receive necessary medical care.
Some of the facts your attorney gathers during discovery will be used as evidence at trial. The evidence will be used to prove that your injuries were caused by the defendants’ products and conduct and that the defendant failed in its legal duty to protect you by warning you about asbestos risks.
Reasons to File a Claim
Filing a claim can finally hold those who neglected to warn and protect you against asbestos exposure accountable for their actions. Many companies were aware of the risks of asbestos during the late 1930s, but its many desirable and low-cost properties outweighed the risks to their workers. You have the legal right to file a claim against the company, manufacturer or person who knowingly exposed you to the toxic material.
Although the legal process is one way to seek justice, there’s another important reason to file a claim: Compensation.
Mesothelioma treatment is expensive. From surgery and chemotherapy to traveling and doctor appointments, the medical bills have a way of adding up. Other costs related to a pleural mesothelioma diagnosis include lost wages, medical expenses not covered by insurance, travel and lodging accommodations, funeral expenses and physical and mental distress, also known as pain and suffering.
