How long will my mesothelioma case take?
Though courts may often try to accelerate the legal process for mesothelioma victims, the actual amount of time it will take to work through your case depends on several key factors. First and foremost, we will need to collect every piece of evidence that will be necessary to file your claim against the responsible party, which may take some time if you do not already know precisely when and where you were exposed to asbestos.
Once all of the information needed to file your claim has been gathered, our attorneys can move forward with your case. Depending on the type of legal action that will be pursued, it is possible that your claim may be resolved in less than a single year – especially if we can file your claim with a victims’ trust fund. Cases that need to litigated may take longer to resolve, though it is worth noting that many of these cases are settled before they ever go to trial.
If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, it will be in the best interest of your family to begin working with an attorney as soon after the diagnosis as possible. Though the claims process may take more time to work through than you would like, you may be able to recover substantial compensation for your pain and suffering.
