Mesothelioma and Asbestos
Mesothelioma, for those unaware, refers to a malignant (cancerous) tumor that may impact the lungs, stomach, heart, or other bodily organs. It is a potentially fatal condition. Its symptoms tend to include shortness of breath and chest pain, plus dry cough, fever, fatigue, or other respiratory complications.
Mesothelioma is directly caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibers into the lungs. In many cases, this exposure to asbestos is the fault of a third party, such as an employer, who the affected party may bring suit against based on negligence or failure to disclose the presence of asbestos in a given building or workspace.
Steps of a Mesothelioma Deposition
Depositions are often vital to the process of a mesothelioma claim being brought against any entity. They provide a human presence to state the facts of the case and bring evidence to the court’s attention. Here are some basic steps to this process:
- Case evaluation: To start, potential plaintiffs must consult with an attorney who specializes in asbestos and mesothelioma litigation to evaluate their case, the state’s statute of limitations, and other details. The attorney will research several areas to determine if a case can proceed.
- Filing: The attorney files a written complaint to file in court, kickstarting the process.
- Discovery and deposition: These are the important phases where evidence is discovered and depositions take place so witnesses can be examined and cross-examined under oath.
- Settlement or trial: In the vast majority of mesothelioma suits, cases end in settlement before reaching trial. In rare cases, trials will determine guilt.
