Filing a Mesothelioma Claim
Recover the Compensation You Deserve
Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that occurs due to asbestos exposure.
A serious health risk that lies hidden in many different industries such as the
construction industry, asbestos can make its way into the lungs and abdomen and create
permanent health conditions. If you have contracted mesothelioma because
of asbestos that existed in your workplace, you may be able to file a
claim against your employer.
Our firm knows that far too often, employers evade liability and are never
held responsible for the suffering inflicted on their employees. We believe
that filing a claim is the first step toward justice. With more than 120
years of combined legal experience, our
Colorado Springs personal injury lawyers are a team you can trust.
What factors will affect my compensation amount?
When building a claim, it is important to compile as much evidence as possible.
Medical reports, hospital bills, and employment records can all further
your case and show proof of your condition. Certain industries, like construction,
mining, and automotive repair have a higher risk of asbestos, potentially
resulting in a more easily obtained compensation.
Your compensation amount can be impacted by the following factors:
- The size of the asbestos victims’ compensation fund in your state
- The severity of your illness and its overall effect on your life
- The time it takes to resolve your case
There is no predetermined period of time that it will take for a mesothelioma
case to be resolved. Based on the strength of your claim and the payment
source, your case could finish in less than a year. Other cases, however,
drag on for two years or longer. Choosing an experienced lawyer can also
help move the process along.
Let our Colorado Springs personal injury lawyers help!
Colorado often places a strict time limit on a victim’s ability to
file a claim. Most mesothelioma claims must be filed within two years
of the date that the disease was diagnosed, so it is important to act
quickly. We are prepared to make decisive and strategic decisions on your behalf.
