Posted on Friday, December 4th, 2020 at 4:08 am    

Have you been exposed to asbestos? If the answer to that question is yes, and you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma you probably have a lot of questions. One important question you may ask is what you can expect if you choose to file an asbestos or mesothelioma lawsuit. This article will discuss basic things you can expect in filing an asbestos and mesothelioma lawsuit.

Expectation: Duration

A common question asked during any legal action process is as to how long such a case may take. The same is true when it comes to asbestos or mesothelioma cases. It is important to note that the majority of asbestos cases are settled before they even get to a jury. This basically means that the parties involved in the case come to an agreement on the amount of money damages. Such an agreement determines the amount that will be paid to the mesothelioma victim. This generally reduces the amount of time a case may take to reach completion.

Expectation: Push Factors

However, a number of other factors need to be present in order to ensure that a case takes less time. For example:

  • You have gathered all the facts about your medical condition and employment history
  • Your mesothelioma lawyer runs an efficient office
  • There is an easily identifiable payment source – an insurance company or asbestos victims’ trust fund

All of the above being held constant, it may take less than a year to receive compensation.

In instances where compensation damages depend on going to trial the case may take two years or more. Courts generally know that mesothelioma victims have short life expectancy and therefore, fast-track their lawsuits.
