Time Period To File A Claim In The State of Louisiana After Being Diagnosed With Mesothelioma

In the State of Louisiana, the statute of limitation provides that after having been diagnosed with mesothelioma, an individual has one year from the initial diagnosis of mesothelioma to file a lawsuit.

In addition, if a mesothelioma victim has already died, his or her spouse and other heirs typically have one year from the date of death to file a wrongful death action, which can also result in the recovery of substantial money damages obtained by filing a lawsuit.

After the expiration of the statutory period, unless a legal exception applies, the injured person loses the right to file a lawsuit seeking money damages or other relief.
