Mesothelioma Family Member Claims

Asbestos claims are not limited to people who have been exposed to asbestos. Family members of people who have died from Mesothelioma and asbestos-related illnesses may also have legal claims. In some cases, family members can step in as plaintiffs if their loved ones have filed an asbestos lawsuit, but passed away before resolution of the case. Family members have the right to file their own wrongful death lawsuits which can help offset medical expenses from medical treatment, funeral expenses and loss of income. Family members may also obtain monetary awards for their emotional suffering.

Family Members Eligible to File a Mesothelioma Lawsuit

  • Children (including adopted / step)
  • Fathers / Dads
  • Grandparents may be included
  • Husbands
  • Mothers / Mom
  • Sisters
  • Wives / Wife
  • Also, people who were financially dependent on the deceased (This varies by states).

Asbestos manufacturers knew long ago that asbestos exposure could lead to death and cancer. If you are an immediate family member or financially dependent on a person who has died from Mesothelioma, you should talk with an experienced attorney about filing a Mesothelioma Wrongful Death Lawsuit.

The only known cause of this Mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos. It is important to note that Mesothelioma is a progressive disease, with a 10-50 year latency period developing over years or even decades in many patients.
