Posted on Monday, October 10th, 2016 at 8:25 pm    

Claim Lawsuit Proof

The state of Florida has set medical standards as to how you can claim for specific impairments. Claimants are to present evidence before trial to prove their case so as to continue with the lawsuit. But, if they fail to present the required proof or their proof is challenged, they may have the whole case dismissed.

Further, the state of Florida allows for the claiming of some aspects that may not be claimed for in other states. For example, you can file a claim for asbestosis. This claim only stands if proof can be shown that it was caused by asbestos related exposure.

Asbestosis Proof Required

The person claiming must show the following to proceed to trial:

  • Proof that a qualified doctor took a detailed work and exposure listing of the person such as where he/she worked. The proof shows if the person was exposed to fibers in the air and if the fibers caused the said illness.
  • Proof that a qualified doctor has taken a detailed medical and smoking history.
  • Evidence that there has been at least a ten year (10yr) period between first exposure and diagnosis.
  • A diagnosis by a qualified physician based on radiological or pathological evidence. the evidence shows that the person has asbestosis or a respiratory illness relating to asbestos exposure.
  • Evidence by a qualified doctor that the person has a permanent impairment based on the level 2 American Medical Association guidelines.
  • Further proof that asbestosis and not another chronic illness has a large contribution to the physical impairment.

The above list is not exhausted. The type of evident needed is based on how severe the loss is. If you are in Florida and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestosis, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact a law firm of professional with renowned experience in asbestos claims.
