A diagnosis of mesothelioma is a devastating blow to a sufferer and his or her family. Medical bills, inability to work, pain and suffering, and an uncertain future pose great challenges even to courageous, determined mesothelioma victims. If you have received the news that you or a close family member is afflicted with mesothelioma, you should consult with a plaintiff's attorney with much experience helping people recover compensation in such cases.
A Review Of Your Work History In Michigan May Reveal Where You Were Likely Exposed To Asbestos
The only known cause of mesothelioma is asbestos exposure. Mesothelioma cases in Michigan and elsewhere require a look back at a person's work history to determine a probable time period and job site where that person most likely was exposed to asbestos. Documentation of asbestos-contaminated job sites can be compared to the person's work history as the first step in preparing an injury claim or lawsuit.
If you have lived or worked in the Great Lakes State for significant periods, you may have been exposed to asbestos in an automotive manufacturing plant, a machinery factory, a metal products fabrication establishment, a steel foundry, a chemical production company, a pharmaceutical product factory, a shipping facility, a hospital, a school or an office building. You may have been exposed to asbestos on a ship or overseas after being deployed from a Michigan military base. You may have worked or lived in Flint, Grand Rapids, Saginaw, Ann Arbor, Lansing, Kalamazoo or Detroit. Whatever the particulars of your situation, Kelley & Ferraro, LLP, is prepared to get your claim for compensation underway.
From our law offices in Cleveland, Ohio, we represent mesothelioma sufferers in Michigan, in other nearby states and nationwide. We also file wrongful death lawsuits on behalf of surviving family members of individuals who have already died of mesothelioma. Our attorneys have recovered nearly $1 billion for asbestos and mesothelioma clients throughout the United States.
When Should You File A Claim?
The statute of limitations in an asbestos exposure case cannot realistically date from the time of exposure, because this disease often takes years or even decades to develop in a person's body. Therefore, the clock starts ticking at the time of diagnosis of mesothelioma rather than at the time of exposure. This is one reason it is important to talk to a lawyer as soon after being diagnosed as possible. Another reason this is important is that you and your family will need financial support to help you gain access to the most promising medical treatments and otherwise cope with the monetary losses that go along with mesothelioma.
