Understanding the Legal Process

When you or a loved one are diagnosed with mesothelioma, the clock begins ticking. Aggressive treatment must begin immediately in order to prolong life as much as possible, and a lawsuit must be filed quickly to compensate for the overwhelming financial burden of upcoming medical care.

The Throneberry Law Group is dedicated to zealous legal representation for victims of mesothelioma or asbestos-related diseases and their families. The principal attorney of the Throneberry Law Group, Michael Throneberry, lost his own father-in-law to mesothelioma in 2004 and is committed to fighting for future sufferers of the disease and their loved ones.

Personalized Service and Legal Representation for the Tough Road Ahead

The costs of managing mesothelioma are high, and our goal is to see that those costs are covered. We want you to be able to focus on the fight and spending as much time as possible with your loved ones instead of medical bills.

Reaching out to an attorney as quickly as possible is absolutely critical. The expedited docket for mesothelioma cases in Illinois allows us to begin the lawsuit quickly, but trial is at least nine months from the first filing. We work to secure medical coverage as soon as possible following a verified mesothelioma diagnosis and the establishment of the likely source of exposure to asbestos.

Full and Fair Compensation

We begin the litigation of a mesothelioma case as a personal injury lawsuit. We seek compensation from employers, companies, manufacturers and other corporations who are responsible for exposing their employees and workers to toxic asbestos. We seek damages for medical bills, future medical care, lost wages, and personal suffering and pain. We pursue all avenues of medical coverage, including private insurance, workers’ compensation and government disability benefits, such as Social Security or veterans’ benefits.

Unfortunately, many mesothelioma victims die before their case goes to trial. Should this happen, the case is converted to a wrongful death lawsuit. We seek compensation for the surviving family members for financial strain, loss of contributions and companionship, and funeral expenses. It’s also possible to file a separate survival action on behalf of the estate of the victim for his or her suffering and pain prior to death.

The Statute of Limitations in Mesothelioma Cases

The statute of limitations is a deadline established by each state addressing the length of time that a mesothelioma victim or their loved one has to pursue a mesothelioma claim. A person is prohibited from pursuing a legal remedy outside this window of time.

Many states have a statute of limitations of either two or three years, but some states have a longer window of time during which a legal action can be pursued.

For the survivors of a person who died from mesothelioma, there is an additional statute of limitations in which to initiate a lawsuit. This time period begins running at the time of the mesothelioma victim’s death.

"[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
