Understand Your Options Under The Law
Mesothelioma victims and their families have several legal options to recover compensation:
- Bankruptcy trusts: When the liabilities from asbestos exposure are more than a company can pay, that business may file Chapter 11 bankruptcy trust to payout present and future mesothelioma claims. If you have evidence of an asbestos-related illness, you may be able to file a claim. However, each trust has different rules for determining the amount of compensation that will be paid.
- Personal injury: If a company was negligent when warning employees about the risks of asbestos exposure or in providing a safe work atmosphere, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit.
- Wrongful death: If your loved one tragically passed away from mesothelioma, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the deceased.
Working with an attorney with an in-depth understanding of mesothelioma cases can increase the chances of reaching a successful outcome to your claim. We will thoroughly analyze your situation to help you determine your best options for recovering full compensation.
Don’t Delay Taking Action
Wisconsin has a three-year statute of limitations from the date of the original diagnosis for mesothelioma cases. Failing to take action within this time frame could leave you without the benefits needed to help you and your family move through this difficult period.
