What you should know about asbestos litigation in South Carolina

Maybe you never imagined that you would develop mesothelioma or another type of asbestos-related disease, but that does not change the fact that you did. You understand just how difficult it is to live with one of these diseases. On top of pain and suffering, you may have a diminished quality of life and hefty medical bills you are struggling to pay. If you need help getting compensation for your injuries and are ready to pursue asbestos litigation in South Carolina, here is what you can expect.

Before you file your lawsuit, you need to decide who to name as the defendant or defendants. If you were exposed to asbestos at work, you will probably include your employer. Asbestos exposure can also occur in the home, and if you were renting your landlord or leasing agent could also be responsible. Asbestos manufacturers, installers and companies that irresponsibly used asbestos are also commonly named in these types of lawsuits.

Figuring out who to name in a lawsuit is not as easy as it may seem. Even if you know that you were exposed at work, you will need to prove who was involved with manufacturing or even using the asbestos. This can be a difficult task since patients suffering from mesothelioma were usually exposed to asbestos years or even decades before getting sick.

Uncovering details from the past several decades can be a long, difficult process, so you should consider speaking with an experienced attorney. He or she can not only help you name the correct defendants, but wil also help you lay out your case, determine compensation to claim and file a complaint on your behalf.
