How BCBH Law Makes Mesothelioma Cases Easier
As a mesothelioma patient, the thought of taking on a lawsuit during your cancer journey may seem overwhelming. Between treatment and financial stressors, many patients dismiss the idea of taking any sort of legal action.
Unfortunately, there are many other reasons people avoid mesothelioma cases. Their difficulty turns people away, but they don’t need to be stressful. In the hands of an experienced lawyer, they won’t be.
Filing a mesothelioma lawsuit is not an easy task. While you can go about filing a claim yourself, mesothelioma cases are especially complicated.
Many patients are unaware of all of the information needed to submit a successful mesothelioma claim. Most times the investigation takes months to determine the persons or company liable for your cancer.
It’s important to know just how difficult mesothelioma cases can be before making any important decisions. At BCBH Law, our lawyers take the stress and guesswork out of your mesothelioma case process. Our attorneys use their experience, expertise and resources to help you get the compensation you deserve.
Your Time to File a Case is Limited
The statute of limitations is a term used to describe the amount of time a patient has to file a claim. Oftentimes, asbestos victims are unaware of this law and lose out on thousands of dollars of compensation they could’ve received.
Statutes vary in each state, with most being two or three years after the victim learned of their disease. Our lawyers, such as Casey Harris, can tell you exactly how long you have to file your claim.
Cases Take Time to Process
Even if you have a few years left, there’s no good in waiting to begin your mesothelioma claim. The first step is speaking with a lawyer to determine the jurisdictions to file your claim and which asbestos manufacturing companies are responsible.
Even those aspects can take months, which can delay filing your claim. So starting with enough time provides a safety net. If you have second thoughts about going through with the case, you can always back out during the process. There’s no harm in that, but the opposite isn’t true. We don’t want you to feel strongly about seeking compensation when it’s too late.
It Can be Difficult to Determine Your Exposure
Mesothelioma takes 20-30 years to develop after your asbestos exposure. Because of this, many claimants have difficulty recalling where they might have come in contact with this toxic substance.
There are also hundreds of locations and companies that could be responsible for exposing you to asbestos. Where do you start?
Building a strong case can take copious amounts of time and energy. This is why many patients opt for legal help after their mesothelioma diagnosis. BCBH Law’s attorneys don’t leave the “Where do you start?” question to you. They answer it through their vast resources and experience.
So, What Can You Do to Help Your Case?
Whether you have been undergoing medical care or are soon to start treatment, your top priority should be improving your health, maintaining a good quality of life, and spending time with your family. Legal claims can take up time from these priorities.
However, deciding to take legal action is the first step in receiving justice for your cancer diagnosis. Hiring an experienced mesothelioma lawyer can help you keep your priorities while seeking recompense.
