Compensation For Victims Of A Second Asbestos-Related Illness

Compensation For Victims Of A Second Asbestos-Related Illness

Pennsylvania state law allows plaintiffs with nonmalignant asbestos-related diseases to file a second lawsuit and recover damages if they later develop an asbestos-related cancer. Should you or a loved one suffer a second asbestos related cancer, you may be entitled to compensation.
This issue recently brought to greater attention when the state legislature in Virginia recently passed a law to enable a person diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma years after an earlier diagnosis of a non-terminal asbestos-related condition to legally pursue further compensation. In some of these cases, the victim may may have agreed to a settlement with the asbestos companies for the first diagnosis, then is later diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma.
