If you’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma, a rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure, you may be wondering if you’re eligible for compensation. A Bremerton mesothelioma lawyer can help you understand your legal rights and file a claim on your behalf.
Our personal injury attorneys offer free case evaluations and work on a contingency basis. This means you only pay us if we’re able to win you a settlement.
Companies knew that asbestos was dangerous, yet they failed to take steps to protect their employees. This has already been established and argued in court. As a result, billions of dollars have already been set aside for mesothelioma victims. That includes victims in Washington State – which has one of the highest asbestos exposure rates in the country.
Ultimately, this means that the process for filing a claim and receiving a settlement is faster than most other personal injury cases. Our personal injury attorneys understand can work with speed to secure the compensation you need.
Mesothelioma has a long latency period – sometimes running in the decades. Simply put, this means that a victim may not learn of a diagnosis for years after exposure.
In the State of Washington, you have three years from the time of diagnosis to file a mesothelioma claim. This puts the law on the side of victims, giving them access to compensation even if their exposure happened years ago.
What if your loved one passed away from mesothelioma? In some situations, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim on their behalf.
According to RCW 4.20.020, a spouse, state registered domestic partner, or child (including a stepchild) can file a claim if their loved one was wrongfully killed. If none of these exists or can file a claim, parents or siblings may be eligible.
Our attorneys can help family members of mesothelioma victims in these situations. Please reach out to us.
