Mesothelioma and Asbestos Lawsuits

North Carolina mesothelioma and asbestos lawsuits against asbestos manufacturers and other companies are based on legal theories such as negligence and products liability. The evidence is that the asbestos manufacturers knew that asbestos products were unsafe because the asbestos dust created during use of their products caused mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis. However, the asbestos companies failed to warn workers about the dangers of asbestos.


North Carolina Workers Comp Claims

When a North Carolina worker has been diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease, that employee may be entitled to legal compensation from a North Carolina workers compensation claim because in most cases of asbestosis, asbestos-related cancer, and mesothelioma the underlying asbestos exposure occurred in the workplace.  If the worker has died from the asbestos disease or asbestos cancer, then the surviving spouse may be eligible to receive death benefits by filing a North Carolina workers  comp claim.


Filing Deadlines / Statutes of Limitations

Under North Carolina law there are filing deadlines that determine the time period within which one must file their asbestos lawsuit or North Carolina workers compensation claim for a legal case involving mesothelioma, an asbestos cancer like lung cancer, or asbestos disease such as asbestosis.

A North Carolina asbestos personal injury lawsuit must be filed within three (3) years from the date of diagnosis of the mesothelioma, an asbestos-related lung cancer, or asbestosis.

A North Carolina asbestos wrongful death lawsuit must be filed within two (2) years from the date of death of the person who died from the mesothelioma, asbestos cancer, or asbestos disease.

A North Carolina asbestos workers compensation claim must be filed within two (2) years from the date of when the worker was diagnosed or two (2) years from the date of the worker’s death.
