So how long do you have to file your case?
Well, if it's a case for yourself, based on your diagnosis of asbestos disease, They have what are called statutes of limitations. Those are typically based on the date of your diagnosis. The time limit itself can vary depending on the state and other things. It's complicated, so you should certainly call a lawyer as soon as you know that you've been diagnosed, and we'll work on that with you. If you are looking to file a case for a deceased family member, then that statute of limitations typically will be based on their date of death. So, again, those laws are complicated. Overall you have a limited time to file so you should call an attorney immediately to figure out and determine if you have enough time left to file the claim.
