National Mesothelioma Claims || The Timeline Of A Mesothelioma Lawsuit

Our Pittsburgh lawyers at Savinis, Kane, & Gallucci, L.L.C. have more than 60 years of combined experience handling mesothelioma cases and other personal injury cases. Although each case is unique, the following is a general timeline for a claim in a mesothelioma lawsuit:

Preparation: We will gather information about your condition and previous asbestos exposure from our Pennsylvania law firm. We'll use these details to figure out who's at fault for your illness and where to file your claim.

Filing: On your behalf, we will prepare and submit a formal written complaint to the court. The content and formatting of this document must adhere to specific guidelines.

Responses: The formal complaint will be distributed to the defendant in the lawsuit, and they will have the opportunity to respond. The defendant will typically attempt to deny responsibility in most cases.

Discovery: Information and evidence will be gathered by both our firm and the defendant's attorneys during this time. In a deposition recorded on video, you might be asked to respond to questions.

Settlement: The opposing side might offer you money to settle the case outside of court before the trial. You can get assistance from our law firm in deciding whether accepting a settlement is in your best interest.

Trial: You might not even be required to attend court at all, depending on where your claim is filed. You will be entitled to financial compensation if we prevail in court.

Appeal: The defendant has a limited amount of time to file an appeal after the trial. We will be your advocates until the very end, including in the event of an appeal.

The Limitation of Liability in Mesothelioma Cases If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma and believe that exposure to asbestos in the workplace may be a factor, it is critical that you speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible. You have only two years from the time you were diagnosed to file a claim because of the statute of limitations. You have only two years to file a survival or wrongful death action if your loved one died from mesothelioma within two years of being diagnosed with the disease.
