Many victims of asbestos exposure wonder when it is the right time to file an asbestos lawsuit. If you have been diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease, the answer is sooner than later.
Filing a lawsuit cannot be done until you have been diagnosed with a condition related to your exposure. But once a diagnosis is made, time begins to run out. Some victims only have one or two years to file a lawsuit after a diagnosis is made. These time limits are known as statutes of limitations.
If you are looking to file a wrongful death lawsuit after a loved one has passed away due to an asbestos-related disease, a statute of limitations also applies to the case. Speaking with an experienced asbestos or mesothelioma attorney after a loved one has passed is the best way to determine how and when to move forward with your lawsuit.
