How Do I Know If I Have a Case?

If you or a family member have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, a rare and aggressive form of cancer, you may be able to pursue legal action.

However, this question is difficult to answer definitively as each case is different. This is why we encourage you to contact a St. Paul mesothelioma attorney from our firm to review your situation during a free consultation.

There are several sources of information we would need to review, including:

  • Medical records that describe your mesothelioma diagnosis
  • Documentation related to your work history
  • Other job history details, such as when you may have worked with materials containing asbestos
  • Any evidence that shows your former employer used asbestos-containing products
  • Whether former coworkers have developed mesothelioma or have filed a case

What is My Mesothelioma Case Worth?

Determining how much your potential case may be worth will depend on a number of variables unique to your mesothelioma diagnosis. This includes looking at the amount and duration of your asbestos exposure, the costs of related medical care, and financial losses from being unable to work.

If we determine your claim has merit and you decide to take legal action, we are prepared to help you pursue compensation for:

  • Cost of chemotherapy and radiation
  • Cost of surgeries
  • Imaging tests (MRIs, X-rays, CT scans)
  • Palliative care
  • Medical assistive devices
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of earning capacity

Generally, there are two options available for pursing compensation for a mesothelioma case:

  • Asbestos trusts – If a company is accountable for you and other former coworkers developing an asbestos-related disease, like mesothelioma, you could be eligible to pursue compensation from a special trust fund. These funds are managed by a trustee whose duty it is to determine the value of each case filed. Certain medical criteria must be met to quality for compensation.
  • Mesothelioma lawsuits – In the event your former employer does not have a trust fund set up, you may be able to file a mesothelioma lawsuit as long as the company has not filed for bankruptcy. You may even be offered to settle out of court. We recommend consulting with a mesothelioma injury attorney to determine if the settlement offered is just and fair.

If no settlement is reached, our attorneys are prepared to go to court if necessary. We have a proven track record of recovering maximum compensation for our clients. Let us help you out with the legal process.

Is There a Time Limit to File a Case?

According to state law, you typically have two years after the date of the diagnosis to file a mesothelioma case in Minnesota. Claimants who attempt to file after this deadline run the risk of having the case barred by the court. However, there may be some exceptions that require you to file before or after that time.

If you are not sure if your filing deadline has passed, we recommend that you speak with one of our licensed Saint Paul mesothelioma lawyers to find out what time frame applies to your situation.

Mesothelioma Cases We Handle

At TSR Injury Law, we are prepared to handle a wide variety of mesothelioma cases. The four main types of mesothelioma include:

Pleural Mesothelioma

This is the most commonly-diagnosed type of mesothelioma, representing between 70 to 75 percent of cases. The tumor develops in the pleural lining, affecting both the chest and lungs. Victims with pleural mesothelioma often experience difficulty breathing, chest pain, unexpected weight loss, fever and fatigue. Life expectancy with treatment is about three years at Stage 1 and about 12 months to a year at Stage 4.

Peritoneal Mesothelioma

This type of mesothelioma represents between 10 to 20 percent of cases. The tumor develops in the lining of the peritoneum or abdomen. Victims with this disease often experience pain and swelling of the abdomen, bloating, decreased appetite and bowel changes. Life expectancy is at least five years in more than half of the victims (52 percent) who undergo surgery with heated chemotherapy.

Pericardial Mesothelioma

This type of mesothelioma is extremely rare with only about 200 cases reported. The tumor develops in the lining of the pericardium or heart. Victims with pericardial mesothelioma often experience an irregular heartbeat, chest pain, breathing problems and persistent coughing. Life expectancy is between six weeks and up to 15 months with surgery.

Testicular Mesothelioma

This is the rarest type of mesothelioma with no more than 100 cases reported. The tumor develops in the lining covering the testes. Victims with this disease often experience scrotal swelling and painless testicular lumps. Life expectancy is about two or more years with surgery and chemotherapy.

Different Symptoms Of Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma caused by asbestos exposure usually takes 20 to 50 years to develop. This can make it difficult to diagnose victims at an early stage, which is why the disease is often discovered too late.

While mesothelioma symptoms can vary, the most common include:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Chest pain
  • Dry cough or wheezing
  • Abdominal pain
  • Fever
  • Weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle weakness
  • Breathing problems
  • Buildup of fluid around the lungs
  • Blood clots
  • Coughing up blood

There is, unfortunately, no cure for mesothelioma. However, early detection and treatment could help extend one’s life expectancy. It is important that you talk with a doctor to better understand your medical options.

  • Construction
  • Mining
  • Welding
  • Mineral manufacturing
  • Chemical plants
  • Firefighting
  • Roofing
  • Plumbing
  • Steel manufacturing
  • Shipbuilding

Am I Eligible to Pursue Compensation?

Just as each mesothelioma diagnosis is different, so is every potential mesothelioma claim. It is difficult to answer the question of whether you have a case without talking to an experienced attorney.

There can be many areas we may consider when trying to determine if you have a case:

  • How much you remember about your work history, including the companies you worked for and dates when you worked at them.
  • Any documentation you have about your work history.
  • Evidence that has already been uncovered about companies that used asbestos-containing products in the past.
  • Whether your previous employers went out of business or set up bankruptcy trusts.

We recommend you contact our Minnesota mesothelioma lawyers as soon as possible to review your specific situation and explain the legal options that may be available.

Have Some Questions? Call (612) TSR-TIME.

What is My Mesothelioma Case Worth?

There are numerous trusts that have been established to help provide financial compensation to mesothelioma victims. The value of a mesothelioma claim can vary depending on the age of the victim, their employment history, their physical state, where the victim was exposed to asbestos, what products they were exposed to, and more. Consequently, it is difficult to determine the value of a potential case without understanding the specific details involved in your claim.

During a conversation with a lawyer at our firm, we can review those details, along with discussing the types of damages that you may be eligible to receive if you have a valid case, including:

  • Surgical procedures
  • Palliative care
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation
  • Removal of fluid between chest and lungs
  • Cost of travel to doctors’ offices
  • Medical tests, including MRIs and X-rays
  • Physical pain
  • Durable medical equipment
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity

As many mesothelioma victims are not diagnosed until the latter stages of the disease, victims may pass away while their case makes its way through the legal process. Should this happen, survivors of the deceased may be able to pursue wrongful death damages, which can include:

  • Lost companionship
  • Lost care and guidance
  • Loss of services, protection and care
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of benefits

There are no caps on the value of damages in a Minnesota personal injury claim, which means victims and their attorneys can pursue the full value of damages they suffered.

We welcome an opportunity to discuss the potential value of your claim and the damages that may be available.

How Can an Experienced Attorney Help Me?

Our Minnesota mesothelioma attorneys can discuss the benefits of legal representation in a free, no-obligation legal consultation.

Some of the advantages include:

  • More financial compensation – Mesothelioma cases that are handled by a licensed attorney obtain more financial compensation compared to those that do not have legal representation.
  • Handling the investigation – A thorough investigation is very important for any damages claim. From obtaining medical records to gathering information about the employer to handling enquiries from insurance companies, we have an entire team of lawyers and support staff to help build a robust argument for your damages claim.

Is There a Deadline for Filing a Mesothelioma Claim?

Statutes of limitations are laws that indicate deadlines for filing personal injury claims. If you do not file a claim within the statute of limitations, your claim could be disqualified, and you can lose your right to collect compensation for your injury. This is why it is in your best interest to contact a lawyer as soon as you can after receiving a mesothelioma diagnosis.

In most cases, personal injury victims must file their claims within two years of the date they are made aware of their diagnosis. In the event of a wrongful death, you also have two years to file a wrongful death claim on behalf of a loved one.

However, there are exceptions to some deadlines, depending on the details of your case. For example, if you plan to file a claim against a government body, you only have 180 days from the date of your diagnosis to get started.

Our Minneapolis mesothelioma lawyers will be able to decipher the exact deadlines that apply to your particular situation. There is no time to waste when it comes to a diagnosis such as mesothelioma.

Call us at (612) TSR-TIME.

Who May be Held Liable for my Diagnosis?

Mesothelioma is a very specific type of injury that is caused by the inhalation of small, lighter-than-air asbestos fibers, which commonly adhere to the lining of the lungs or in the abdomen. After some time, these areas develop tumors which begin to press on the nerves in the surrounding tissue. Often, this can occur many years after the initial exposure and consequently, most people may not be sure who can be held liable for their mesothelioma diagnosis.

In most cases, the victim’s employer could possibly be held liable for the diagnosis. The law states that employers are obligated to keep a safe work environment, provide safety training, and warn workers of any potential hazards.

Keep in mind that it is possible that multiple entities could potentially be held responsible for a single victim’s mesothelioma diagnosis, such as:

  • Manufacturers – Many years ago, thousands of products were made using asbestos. These companies could potentially be held liable.
  • Property owners – For example, contractors could have been exposed to asbestos while working on someone else’s commercial or residential property, which means the property owner would be liable. The same goes for a contractor who may have been exposed to asbestos in a government building, such as a public school or a court house.
  • Mining Companies – Since asbestos may have been mined, it could have made the asbestos particles airborne, which could have put the workers and others at risk to possibly come in contact with the particles.

What to do After Being Diagnosed with Mesothelioma?

Being diagnosed with mesothelioma can understandably bring forth lots of fear and uncertainty for the victim. Most people wonder, what should they do next?

The following are some steps that may be useful after learning about your diagnosis:

Seek Another Opinion

It is possible the doctor made a mistake and you have another illness. Many doctors are not all that familiar with this disease and what it looks like. This is why it is a good idea to confirm the diagnosis with another medical professional.

Plan Out Your Treatment

Once the diagnosis is confirmed, it is important to determine the treatment plan. You may be able to alleviate some of the pain and other symptoms you are suffering from, even if you cannot prolong your life.

During this time, it is also important to create a support network to help you get treatment and deal with the challenges you will face as your illness progresses. You also need emotional support during this difficult time.

Talk to a Lawyer

Cancer treatment is very expensive, and a lawyer may be able to pursue compensation to cover medical bills and other expenses. There is limited time to file a case so it is best to contact a lawyer soon.

Our attorneys at TSR Injury Law can manage the entire legal process for you, if you have a case. Complete an online form to learn more.

Different Types of Mesothelioma

According to the American Cancer Society, the following is a list of the different kinds of mesothelioma:

  • Pleural mesothelioma – This is the most commonly-diagnosed type and it affects the chest and lungs.
  • Peritoneal mesothelioma – This type of mesothelioma is not very common. It usually starts in the stomach area and can spread to the liver or spleen.
  • Sarcomatoid mesothelioma – This affects the sarcomatoid cells and can spread quickly. This form of mesothelioma typically does not respond well to treatment.
  • Epithelioid mesothelioma – This type of mesothelioma affects epithelioid cells. It is usually known to be more responsive to treatment.
  • Biphasic mesothelioma – This type of mesothelioma affects both the sarcomatoid and epithelial cells. The more epithelial cells you have, the better your prognosis might be.
  • Testicular mesothelioma – This type of mesothelioma is a cancer that affects the lining of the testicles.
  • Pericardial mesothelioma – This is an extremely rare form of mesothelioma that affects the membrane around the heart.

Common Symptoms of Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma can have several different symptoms. If you believe you have been exposed to some form of asbestos, you may want to look out for the following:

  • Chest Pain
  • Tissue lumping under the skin on your chest
  • Fever
  • Obstruction of your bowels
  • Abdominal pain
  • Abdominal swelling
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Nausea
  • Painful coughing

How is Lung Cancer Different from Mesothelioma?

Lung cancer is not exactly the same as mesothelioma. The biggest difference between the two is that lung cancer occurs when a tumor develops inside the lung itself. Mesothelioma is when the mesothelium is affected, which is the lining around the internal organs, such as the lungs, heart, liver, kidney, and stomach.

Mesothelioma is also different from lung cancer because of how it attacks the healthy cells. There is not much separation between the healthy and unhealthy cells. This is why this disease is so difficult to remedy. Radiation and chemotherapy treatments are much more effective when tumors are isolated to one organ, which is usually not the case with mesothelioma.

Jobs with a High Risk for Asbestos Exposure

There are several types of industries that may have put their workers at a high risk for exposure to asbestos, including the following:

  • Manufacturing facilities
  • Mineral manufacturing and excavating
  • Architecture
  • Engineering
  • Construction (residential or commercial)
  • Chemical processing facilities
  • Petroleum refining facilities
  • Industrial power plants
  • Auto repair
  • Shipbuilding
  • U.S. Navy

The following is a list of job titles of people who may have been exposed to asbestos:

  • Auto mechanic
  • Plumber
  • Pipe layer
  • Pipefitter
  • Steamfitter
  • Welder
  • Electricians
  • Chemical engineer
  • Stationary engineer
  • Millwright
  • Brick masons
  • Painters
  • Drywall Installer
  • Sheet metal worker
  • Insulators
  • Machinist
  • Boilermaker
  • Sailor
  • Shipyard worker

Filing a Claim with an Asbestos Bankruptcy Trust

If our lawyers think you have a legitimate case, one thing we can help you find is if we can file a claim against an asbestos bankruptcy trust. These are trusts that were set up by companies who have been sued in the past by former employees because of asbestos-related illnesses.

There are several companies that have set up these trusts, including the following:

  • Eagle-Pitcher Industries
  • National Gypsum
  • Owens Corning Fibreboard
  • Johns Manville
  • Harbison Walker Refractories Company
  • Combustion Engineering
  • Kaiser Aluminum & Chemical Corp.
  • Armstrong World Industries

Is There a Cure for Mesothelioma?

Although there is no cure for mesothelioma, the earlier it is detected and treated, the better the chances of extending life. The issue with mesothelioma is that it often goes undetected until the later stages when people start to feel the symptoms.

Although each case is different, it is common for patients with peritoneal mesothelioma to survive longer than those with pleural mesothelioma.

Your doctor will be able to get into more detail about your own prognosis, along with possible treatment plans and the possibility of pushing the cancer into remission.

Bloomington Mesothelioma Attorneys

Mesothelioma is a tumor that forms in the lining of the lungs, commonly as a result of exposure to asbestos fibers. These fibers attach to the lining of the lungs and damage the surrounding healthy cells, causing them to swell. This leads to the development of the cancerous tumors. Most individuals that are diagnosed with mesothelioma fail to live beyond 12 months after the initial diagnosis. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, we offer a free, no obligation consultation to review your situation and determine how we may be able to help.

Victims and their families may be eligible to file a lawsuit to seek financial compensation to cover medical bills, lost earnings, pain and suffering and other damages. The trusted attorneys at TSR Injury Law have recovered $300 million in compensation and have been recognized by prestigious associations like Super Lawyers, The National Trial Lawyers and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum.

Our firm takes cases on contingency, which means that if we represent you, there are no upfront fees and we only get paid when we obtain a recovery on your behalf.

Contact us now at (612) TSR-TIME. We want to help.

Do I Have a Case?

If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you may be eligible to seek damages for your illness from your former employer.

However, as every case is different, we recommend that you first contact one of the experienced Bloomington mesothelioma lawyers at TSR Injury Law for a free and confidential review of your claim.

There are many factors we may consider, such as whether former coworkers have developed mesothelioma and documentation you have about your work history.

What is the Value of My Mesothelioma Case?

Unlike many states, Minnesota does not place damage caps on personal injury claims. However, it is difficult to determine the full value of a lawsuit without performing a comprehensive review on each specific claim.

Some factors that may be considered include the damages that the victim may have endured as a result of their diagnosis:

  • Surgeries
  • Chemotherapy
  • Palliative care
  • Lost wages
  • Durable medical equipment
  • Medical testing
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost companionship
  • Loss of benefits
  • Lost services

Options for Pursuing Compensation

In general, there are two paths to pursue compensation for a mesothelioma damages claim:

Asbestos Trusts

Companies created these trusts in Chapter 11 bankruptcy so former employees that developed an asbestos-linked disease could file a claim to try to recover financial compensation. These funds are managed by appointed trustees who are tasked with determining the value of each claim filed against them.

Like all injury claims, there is a complicated legal process and certain requirements that a claimant must meet to be eligible for compensation from the trust.

Mesothelioma Lawsuits

If your former employer has not set up a trust, you may be able to file a lawsuit, provided the company has not gone bankrupt. (If the company went bankrupt but reorganized under federal law, you may still be able to file a lawsuit.)

However, before getting to court, the company may offer a settlement. This is something you should discuss with your attorney, as he or she can help determine if the settlement is fair.

If no settlement can be reached, your claim could end up in court. Our lawyers are always ready to court when necessary, because we want our clients to receive maximum compensation.

Call us today with your questions about a mesothelioma claim. (612) TSR-TIME.

How May a Bloomington Mesothelioma Attorney Help Me?

Mesothelioma cases can be quite complex cases. There can be many variables to each claim and it is often difficult to obtain information about old employers and other items that are needed to build a strong argument for your damages claim.

At TSR Injury Law, we know how to build a robust argument for your case in addition to the other steps involved in the legal process. From obtaining documentation and medical records to negotiating with insurance companies and more, we have the experience and resources to fully litigate your claim.

Is There a Deadline for Filing a Lawsuit?

Minnesota has a two-year deadline after the discovery of your diagnosis for filing a mesothelioma lawsuit. There may be some exceptions to that limitation. However, if you have recently been diagnosed with an asbestos disease and believe you may have a claim, we urge you to contact us right away. Our attorneys need time to build your case.

Call us today for your free consultation. We can receive your call 24/7 at (612) TSR-TIME.

Who May Be Held Liable for My Mesothelioma Diagnosis?

Various companies and organizations have been involved in the mining and use of materials that contained asbestos. Some of these may include:

  • Property owners
  • Product manufacturers
  • Shools
  • Shipyards
  • Mining companies
  • Chemical plants
  • The military

At TSR Injury Law, our team of lawyers and support staff can help to review each detail of your claim to help ensure that negligent parties are held responsible for their actions.

What Can I Do If I Have Been Diagnosed?

There are several recommended steps to take after a mesothelioma diagnosis.

  • Get a second opinion – Doctors can sometimes be wrong, and an asbestos injury is not something all physicians are familiar with.
  • Educate yourself – Learning about the disease and symptoms you may experience can help you and your loved ones better prepare for the future.
  • Plan your treatment – There are multiple cancer treatment centers in Minnesota, including the Masonic Cancer Clinic and University of Minnesota Medical Center.
  • Create a reliable support system – This can include things like help with household chores, driving you to appointments and providing emotional support.
  • Contact an experienced lawyer – It is important that you can focus on managing your day-to-day symptoms. Our Bloomington mesothelioma lawyers are well-versed in Minnesota laws and can provide guidance throughout the legal process, as well as keep you fully informed and up-to-date about how your case is progressing.

There is limited time to take legal action, so contact us today. Free consultation. Call (612) TSR-TIME.

Four Primary Forms of Mesothelioma

  • Pleural – This is the most common form of the disease and it causes tumors in the lungs and chest. The fatality rate for pleural mesothelioma is quite high. If the disease is detected in Stage 1, life expectancy could be three years or more.
  • Peritoneal – These tumors are in the lining of the abdomen. If doctors can do surgery, and if chemotherapy is successful, victims could have a life expectancy up to five years.
  • Pericardial – These tumors form in the lining around the heart. This is a very rare form of the disease, and with surgery, patients could live long past the normal life expectancy for mesothelioma patients.
  • Testicular – This form of mesothelioma involves tumors in the lining of the testicles and is even more rare than pericardial mesothelioma.

Our Minneapolis mesothelioma lawyers are here to assist you.

What Are the Signs of Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma can take many years to develop, so it often goes undiagnosed until it is in the later stages and victims show symptoms like:

  • Chest pain
  • Unexplained muscle weakness
  • Fatigue
  • Buildup of fluid around the lungs
  • Blood clots
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Dry, hacking cough
  • Wheezing,
  • Fever unrelated to something else
  • Vertigo or other balance issues

Many of these symptoms could be from another illness. It is important to be examined by a physician to determine what is causing your specific symptoms.

Who Is at Risk for Asbestos Exposure?

There are three main types of asbestos exposure: occupational, secondhand and environmental.

Occupational occurs on the job, as workers are exposed to asbestos many times throughout the work week, increasing the risk of inhaling toxic fibers from this mineral.

There is an increased risk for workers – and potentially family members through secondhand exposure – in certain industries. These may include:

  • Asbestos mining
  • Car repair and maintenance
  • Chemical plants
  • Construction
  • Demolition
  • Fire fighting
  • Oil refineries
  • Paper mills
  • Printing companies
  • Roofing
  • Shipbuilding
  • Steel manufacturing

If you were ever employed in any of these industries and have any signs of mesothelioma, we urge you to see your doctor as soon as possible.

Some of the places in Minnesota where asbestos exposure is known to have happened include:

  • Big Stone Lake Plant
  • Hoot Lake Plant
  • Monticello Nuclear Power Plant
  • Prairie Island

Secondhand exposure is often suffered by family members of workers who were regularly exposed to asbestos. Fibers would get on the workers’ clothes or hair and the workers would bring these fibers home. Spouses and children could become exposed by touching clothing or hugging the at-risk workers.

Environmental exposure occurs when someone who does not work directly with asbestos is exposed to it. For example, someone may work close by others who deal with asbestos-containing products and be exposed.
