Our Team of Attorneys Will Fight For Compensation for You and Your Family!

 

Mesothelioma is an unfortunate and horrific form of cancer that is directly linked to asbestos exposure. The industrial use of asbestos, even after the dangers were discovered, is terrible and companies that continue this practice can certainly be held liable for exposing workers, and countless others to asbestos even several years have passed since the initial exposure.

That means that anyone who directly had exposure, or had family members die from either mesothelioma or suffered a related illness are able to take legal action for the full maximum compensation, from the large scale manufacturers that most likely caused it. 

Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban provide knowledgeable representation for any victims of this throughout North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.

What are Common Illnesses Associated with Asbestos Exposure?

There are certain companies throughout the United States that chose to use asbestos in products ranging from motor vehicle brakes to tile flooring, and while they did so, and made money doing it, they knew that the chemical inside was incredibly hazardous to the folks who were using it. 

They established a false trust with the people who bought and sold their products and it’s due to that, so many people were diagnosed and died from various types of cancer.

 

How do I Know if I Was Exposed to Asbestos?

Most commonly, people are exposed to asbestos through whatever type of work they do every day or night, the most common jobs where this can or has occurred are but are not limited to the following: 

 

What are the Statute of Limitations on Mesothelioma Claims Where I’m From?

Each state has its own unique guidelines and deadlines when it comes to filing a claim for mesothelioma, most likely because these cases are very slow to develop in someone’s body and patients might not see clear symptoms for years, sometimes even decades. Here are the deadlines for the states that we serve: 

  • North Carolina: Two years from the diagnosis (asbestos claim), and two years from the date of the wrongful death.
  • South Carolina: Three years from the diagnosis (asbestos claim), and three years from the date of the wrongful death.
  • Virginia: Two years from the diagnosis (asbestos claim), and two years from the date of the wrongful death.
