Do asbestos claims have a statute of limitations?

Like the majority of personal injury claims, asbestos exposure claims have a statute of limitations.

The average time limit is 2-5 years from the moment you are diagnosed with a disease caused by asbestos exposure, such as mesothelioma, but it may be shorter or longer depending on where you live. It is important to know that more than one state's statute of limitations may apply to your asbestos exposure case.

For this reason, we strongly advise you to contact our team of experts as soon as you receive your diagnosis since if the statute of limitations expires, you are no longer eligible for compensation.
