Michigan is home to many auto factories and shipyards, and sadly, these job sites have been linked to a number of asbestos-related diseases. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you may be eligible for compensation for your medical bills and lost wages related to treatment.
Winning a mesothelioma settlement isn’t as simple as filing medical expense paperwork with an asbestos trust fund. You need an experienced Mesothelioma Lawyers in Dearborn on your side to make sure you gather all the evidence you need to win.
Proving that you’ve been exposed to asbestos can take significant time, especially since mesothelioma can take decades to develop. Fortunately, Michigan adheres to the discovery rule, which dictates that the statute of limitations on asbestos and mesothelioma lawsuits only starts once the diagnosis is known, rather than when the asbestos injury occurred.
In Michigan, the statute of limitations on mesothelioma cancer and asbestos-related disease cases is 3 years. If the diagnosis is made after the victim has passed away, then the clock starts running on the day of the victim’s death.
Victims and their families must work quickly to contact a personal injury lawyer and begin gathering evidence for their claim. A clear timeline of events is crucial to winning mesothelioma cases. If the victim has not worked at an asbestos-contaminated job site in a long time, then proving their exposure to asbestos can be difficult.
Gathering all of the evidence and documentation can take time. Mesothelioma patients need all the time they can get to rest and seek medical care, so they should partner with an experienced Mesothelioma Lawyers in Dearborn who can handle the majority of the work with sensitivity and care.
