Two types of lawsuits that can be filed in asbestos injury cases.
If a family member has passed away from an asbestos-related disease, a wrongful death suit can be filed.
In a personal injury claim, the individual suffering with an asbestos-related illness must be the one to file suit. Specific rights in these lawsuits depend on the county and state where the case is filed.
Employees of companies that used asbestos are not the only individuals who have rights against asbestos manufacturers.
Although the vast majority of mesothelioma litigation cases are between primary asbestos exposure victims and the manufacturers of asbestos containing products, other groups have rights as well.
If you experienced secondary exposure and have developed an asbestos-related disease because a spouse or family member worked with asbestos, you may also have a claim.
