My family member died from asbestos exposure. Can I still file a claim?
Tragically, a person may pass away from mesothelioma and other illnesses contracted due to asbestos exposure before they are able to file a personal injury claim. However, in these instances, family members may file a wrongful death claim.
Wrongful death claims allow surviving loved ones to claim compensation for the losses they have sustained as a result of the death. For example, if the person who contracted mesothelioma earned an income that contributed to the household, family members can include this in a wrongful death claim. Wrongful death claims can also seek compensation for things such as loss of companionship, support, and guidance.
