Yes. If your loved one filed a mesothelioma lawsuit but passed away before it ended, you may take over the claim in their name. Additionally, family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit if a loved one dies of mesothelioma. There is statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death lawsuit, though. Don’t wait too long to contact a lawyer and file a lawsuit, if you would like to pursue the compensation to which your loved one was entitled.
