Any person who has developed mesothelioma through exposure to asbestos can file a lawsuit. Family members or friends can also file a lawsuit if they got this cancer from an already afflicted person or through contact by living with a person working with asbestos. If an individual with asbestos mesothelioma dies, then a family member may pursue litigation.

The criteria for an eligible mesothelioma claim includes:

  • Statement from a doctor or medical records with date of initial diagnosis
  • 10 years of exposure before diagnosis
  • Proof of exposure through testimony or records
