Asbestos-related diseases, including mesothelioma, have affected thousands of Americans over the past few decades. Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that can develop years after the victim was exposed to asbestos, so it can be difficult to diagnose and prove its cause.
However, experienced asbestos lawyers can help mesothelioma victims get compensation from asbestos trust funds, insurance companies, and responsible parties. Mesothelioma attorneys know how to prove exposure to asbestos and navigate the legal issues standing between you and the remuneration you deserve.
Under Michigan law, victims of mesothelioma can file claims for both medical expenses and lost wages due to medical treatment. This financial relief can be life-changing for victims and families who have struggled with asbestos-related health issues for years.
Proving that asbestos caused your condition can be difficult, but with the help of a specialized mesothelioma law firm, you can document evidence and win. We can also help you document all of your medical expenses and lost wages so you can maximize your payout.
In Michigan, the statute of limitations on mesothelioma cases is 3 years. This means that a claim has to be filed within 3 years after the victim’s diagnosis or death. There is also a stipulation indicating that the time limit starts whenever the victim is given clinical or laboratory evidence that their condition was asbestos-related.
However, it’s best for victims and their families to talk to a lawyer as soon as mesothelioma has been diagnosed. Assembling all the evidence to file a claim can take time, especially if the victim’s work history needs to be investigated. The sooner you talk to an attorney, the sooner you can collect compensation for your medical expenses and lost wages
