If you or a family have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, or any asbestos disease you could be eligible for substantial compensation. Over $30 billion has been placed in asbestos trust funds which are set up for those who are victims to asbestos-related diseases.
Anybody can be affected. Many are exposed due to exposure of a family member to asbestos in the workplace.
Family members are at risk of developing an asbestos-related illness even if they did not work in as asbestos related job. If someone comes into contact with asbestos in the home, they may develop an asbestos related illness.
As a rule of thumb, individuals that are exposed to asbestos do not start experiencing symptoms until many years later. In many cases it is too late for effective treatment.
Time may be of the essence. Like many types of lawsuits, asbestos-related cases have a statute of limitations, in which you only have a certain amount of time to file a lawsuit.
