Mesothelioma is a condition that robs thousands of Americans of their health each year. Because of how long mesothelioma takes to develop after asbestos exposure has occurred, there may be even more Americans suffering from this condition in future years.
Michigan is home to booming auto and shipbuilding industries; two sectors with a high risk of asbestos exposure. If you have been exposed to asbestos and diagnosed with mesothelioma, you may be eligible for financial relief, including payment for medical bills and lost wages related to your treatment.
Your best course of action is to contact an experienced Mesothelioma Lawyers in Detroit as soon as possible. A law firm specializing in mesothelioma cancer can help you through the complex process of gathering evidence and filing a claim.
In the state of Michigan, the statute of limitations on mesothelioma and asbestos-related disease claims is 3 years. Because Michigan adheres to the discovery rule, this means that victims have 3 years starting from their date of diagnosis or the victim’s death.
However, there is also an exception for cases where the victim should have known that their condition was asbestos-related, but did not pursue a formal diagnosis until later. If you suspect that your condition has been caused by asbestos exposure, talk to a board-certified medical doctor and a compensation lawyer as soon as possible before time runs out.
Because mesothelioma develops decades after asbestos exposure occurs, tracking down proof of exposure can be time-consuming. Mesothelioma victims may need to locate old work records that show that they were employed at a job site with known sources of asbestos fibers.
An Mesothelioma Lawyers in Detroit can help you determine which evidence is admissible in claims, and how to locate that evidence if it is no longer in your possession. A legal team can help you manage this process as you deal with medical appointments and care for your family.
