No, unless you were adopted by the step-dad or step-mom. Only heirs to the estate can file a lawsuit for the mesothelioma diagnosis.
However, in some instances you can pursue asbestos related litigation.
And in other cases, if the mesothelioma was related to service in the military, there may be VA benefits available.
