His doctor says has only 2-3 months to live. I now have obtained power of attorney. Can I file a lawsuit?
Most people who develop mesothelioma have worked on jobs where they inhaled asbestos particles. Most insulation materials before the mid 1970’s contained asbestos.
Many other construction materials also contained asbestos. Many people who are diagnosed with mesothelioma from exposure to asbestos, or their legal representatives, are eligible to file a lawsuit to receive financial compensation.
The first step though is to contact a law firm that has significant experience with mesothelioma lawsuits and get them started on the research and investigation of the work history for the individual that was diagnosed with mesothelioma. That information does take a while to put together yet is what moves the lawsuit forward.
