Mesothelioma Statute of Limitations

Filing Mesothelioma Lawsuits in a Timely Fashion

The laws regarding mesothelioma, wrongful death and injury lawsuits are quite different from state to state. A statute of limitations refers to the maximum amount of time that can pass following a diagnosis or a death before a lawsuit can be filed. We take cases nationwide and have filed personal injury lawsuits on the behalf of persons who were diagnosed with asbestos related diseases and mesothelioma, in addition to wrongful death lawsuits on the behalf of survivors left behind when the disease became fatal.

Understanding the Statute of Limitations in Your Jurisdiction

When there is a confirmed diagnosis of mesothelioma - or even a preliminary one - the clock starts ticking. If you fail to file a lawsuit prior to your jurisdictions deadline, you or your family may not be eligible to recover monetary damages. It is absolutely critical to consult with a mesothelioma lawyer as soon as possible.

Immediate Legal Representation Nationwide

The Throneberry Law Group will first attempt to file your lawsuit in the state of Illinois, as the Madison County court system gives priority to mesothelioma cases. They will expedite the trial dates as much as possible, because the court recognizes that those diagnosed with mesothelioma have short life expectancies.

Our team works quickly to determine the cause of asbestos exposure in a case, so we can file a lawsuit and obtain financial compensation for immediate medical treatment. If you or someone you care about is showing signs or symptoms of mesothelioma or asbestos related diseases, it is absolutely critical that you see your doctor as soon as possible. If you receive a preliminary or confirmed diagnosis of mesothelioma or asbestos cancer, contact us immediately to start the legal process.

Compassionate, Caring Support

Call us at (480) 454-6008 for a free consultation, no matter where you live in the United States. We travel to you to discuss your legal options, and if we are successful in securing you the financial reparation you deserve, only then will we take attorney fees.

"[Michael] Throneberry gave me a whole new outlook on attorneys! A very caring person who was more concerned with my health than a case. Truly unexpected! He explained possible conditions in english and even found the right doctors in my area. Prepared me for the right questions to ask the doctors so that I can understand my illness better. A great person and a great human being! Thank you" Greg

"It was the worst time of our lives and one of the hardest decisions ever made. I remember Michael Throneberry driving to meet my grandfather. This was unexpected and so impressive. Michael Throneberry got the results for us! Nothing will bring back our grandfather, but I know he is happy for his family that we’ve received something from him and his years of hard work as a pipefitter." Anonymous
