Are You a Newly Diagnosed Mesothelioma Patient? How Can You Get Financial Help?

April 26, 2014

Obviously, receiving a diagnosis of mesothelioma is devastating news. But on top of the stress and other emotional after-effects of getting this type of news, you may also have the more practical concerns of how you and your family will deal with the economic burdens. If you have health insurance, of course, much of that burden will be lifted. But what if you don’t?

It can be difficult to know where to turn. One potential way to get financial assistance for your expensive medical bills is to file a lawsuit against the companies that may be the cause of your mesothelioma.

It may seem nearly impossible to consider filing a lawsuit right now. It may seem like it simply makes more sense to deal with you or your family members’ treatment first, and to save the lawsuit for later, but that’s just not a good idea. And we’re not just saying this because we want to help you with a lawsuit (if we can) — we’re saying this because we do not want you to potentially miss out on your opportunity to pursue justice for you or your family member’s mesothelioma.

It may be difficult to believe, but there is a time limit (called the statute of limitations) on how long you have to file a mesothelioma lawsuit. And it can be really short –as little as just one year in some states. And if you don’t take action within that time limit, you will never be able to pursue legal action for mesothelioma. Ever.

While we understand that a lawsuit cannot cure someone’s cancer, it can still help cover medical bills or provide for your family.
