Mesothelioma Claims: Filing an Asbestos Suit for Exposure & Death

Mesothelioma Claims: Filing an Asbestos Suit for Exposure & Death

For almost 100 years, shipyards across the East Coast of the United States were busy building and repairing ships. While the hustle and bustle that punctuated shipyards during past decades has mostly died down, and many former yards are now closed, the aftermath of the industry’s practice of installing asbestos insulation is still felt today. Many individuals have succumbed to asbestos exposure and even asbestos death. An experienced Mesothelioma attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve.

In recent years, scientists have learned that exposure to asbestos dust is the primary cause of Mesothelioma, an aggressive form of cancer that often takes decades to manifest itself. Unfortunately, many former shipyard workers who had prolonged exposure to asbestos years ago are now dying from mesothelioma. An article in the Post and Courier notes that asbestos-related deaths are now plaguing South Carolina thanks in part to the Charleston Naval Shipyard, which was once booming with workers who installed asbestos insulation. The article reports that Charleston County’s staggering annual asbestos-related mortality rate, 8.8 deaths out of every 100,000 residents, doubles the state’s rate and surpasses national numbers.

Filing a Mesothelioma Claim Related to Asbestos Exposure

These are typically two types of claims that are filed based on asbestos-related cancers such as Mesothelioma: personal injury claims and wrongful death claims. Personal injury claims can be filed by individuals who are suffering from an asbestos-related illness, while wrongful death claims are filed by family members who have lost a loved one due to an asbestos-related illness. Asbestos claims often sue for a variety of damages including compensation for the cost of medical bills, lost wages, and physical as well as mental distress.

Mesothelioma Claims and Asbestos Exposure: Statute of Limitations

Many personal injury claims in the United States are subject to statutes of limitation, or specified timeframes within which the lawsuit must be filed. Under most statutes of limitations, the clock starts ticking when the claimant is injured. This can be problematic in Mesothelioma claims, as the cancer can take years to manifest itself, and the injured party is often unable to pinpoint an exact date of injury.

Courts have made certain statute of limitations exceptions for asbestos claims. For example, courts today generally apply the “discovery rule” to asbestos exposure cases. Under the discovery rule, the statute of limitations clock does not start to run until the effects of the asbestos exposure manifest themselves. However, if you would like to file an asbestos personal injury claim in South Carolina, keep in mind that our state’s three year statute of limitations will start to run when your injury first manifests itself. Therefore it is very important to contact a Mesothelioma attorney as soon as possible.

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
