Exposed to Asbestos in Connecticut?

The presence of many shipbuilding yards, power generating plants, and other industries across the State of Connecticut has lead to the routine exposure of electricians, chemical operators, powerhouse workers, boilermakers, and engineers to asbestos.

How and Where Were You Exposed to Asbestos in Connecticut?

Connecticut is situated along the Atlantic Coast, and shipbuilding industries and submarine bases have been prevalent in this state. The General Dynamics Electric Boat Shipyard was the highest source of asbestos exposure in Connecticut. In the shipbuilding process, asbestos was used to protect the components from heat and corrosion.

Mesothelioma & Lung Cancer
Statute of Limitations in Connecticut

Thousands of people are diagnosed with mesothelioma, lung cancer, or other asbestos-related diseases each year, due to the unnecessary workplace exposure to asbestos-containing materials. You can file an asbestos claim if you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer but within a set period. The time frame is fixed in the statute of limitations and is different for each state. The deadline for filing an asbestos claim in Connecticut is three years from the date you receive your diagnosis.

In case a person dies of mesothelioma or lung cancer,  family members can file a wrongful death asbestos claim, but within three years from the date of death. If you miss the deadline, you will likely lose your right to the compensation you deserve. So, act as soon as possible once you are aware of your diagnosis.

Free Evaluation & Advice

Eligible Conditions for Asbestos Compensation

Workers, veterans, or family members that experienced past asbestos exposure may first notice some minor symptoms, like shortness of breath. They may attribute such symptoms to other causes, like aging. But, the result of medical checks and investigations can show past asbestos exposure in the workplace has led to a current asbestos-associated disease. If you find yourself in this scenario, the help of counsel experienced in representing asbestos cases is essential. Our lawyers will assist you in navigating the legal system and fighting for compensation for your medical bills and lost wages. These are the asbestos diseases approved for asbestos claims:

Lung cancer Mesothelioma Asbestosis Gallbladder Cancer Kidney Cancer Laryngeal/Esophageal Cancer Gastrointestinal Cancer Colon/Colorectal Cancer Ovarian Cancer Pulmonary Fibrosis

Filing an Asbestos Claim in Connecticut

Current and former residents of Connecticut diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease, and their family members should contact us as soon as possible. The statutes of limitations are only three years from the date of the diagnosis (for personal injury claims) and the time of death (for wrongful death claims). In 90% of the cases, we file asbestos trust fund claims rather than going through a lawsuit. Our experienced attorneys will help you with the steps involved in the asbestos claim process.

Bankruptcy trust claims

Asbestos trust funds were set up years ago to pay people that are sick and have been injured by asbestos. However, as asbestos trust funds do not have enough money to pay all asbestos claims fully, they offer a set percentage of the legal demand. But, the funds are typically dispersed faster than in lawsuits. Asbestos trust fund claims are usually handled out of court.

Preparing the claim

The quicker we can get the information from you and get it filed with the asbestos trust funds, the quicker the payment will come. In the beginning, we are on a fact-finding mission, but it's not as intensive as a typical lawsuit would be. It's more of an administrative process.

Gathering the information

Initially what is required from the asbestos trust fund is to prove workplace exposure to that particular's asbestos trust fund product or products and you also have to show that you've been diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease. First, we will qualify the medical reports. Then, we have to prove how you were exposed: primarily through occupation or secondarily through a family member that you lived with and who worked directly with or around asbestos-containing products. For occupational exposure, you have to tell us where you have worked at and inform us about any products that were in your working environment.

Filing your claim

We make the process simple, and we don't put anything other than the actual necessity on you to provide certain documentation to prosecute your asbestos claim. As soon as we get the necessary information, we can start filing that with the asbestos trust funds and expect payment within a couple of months.

Claim evaluation

Asbestos trust funds usually qualify the asbestos claim and pay it under two processes. "Expedited Review" is based on a minimum set of probable medical and asbestos exposure criteria and applications receive a schedule amount that is not negotiated. "Individual Review" allows for asbestos claim amounts up to a published maximum. Factors that determine the actual amount can include but are not limited to, age at diagnosis, jurisdiction, and the settlement history of your counsel.

Claim payment

Trustees make a determination and decide whether they will or won't pay the asbestos claim. Usually, payment comes within a couple of months, and we can set up a stream of revenue for our clients. You will benefit from a variable continual cash flow which adds up to a lot over time.

At Environmental Litigation Group, P.C., we strive to get you the best asbestos claim results possible. To pay out asbestos claims, asbestos trust funds managers rely on something called case valuation matrix. Case valuation matrix is a document approximating historical settlements values and assigning different values for compensable cancer types. The base dollar amounts vary by state or region because location sets occupational asbestos exposure levels. The table below provides the average settlement values, by disease level, at asbestos trust funds with seven disease levels, as presented in Rand Corporation's report on Asbestos Bankruptcy Trusts.

AVERAGE AMOUNTS PAID BY ASBESTOS TRUST FUNDS

Mesothelioma (Level VIII)
$215,000
Lung Cancer 1 (Level VII)
$40,000
Lung Cancer 2 (Level VI)
$20,000
Other Cancer (Level V)
$22,000
Severe Asbestosis (Level IV)
$42,000
Asbestosis/Pleural Disease (Level III)
$19,000
Asbestosis/Pleural Disease (Level II)
$8,000

Disclaimer:  Compensation for your asbestos case will be calculated starting from the base calculation matrix, increasing or decreasing the level of compensation according to the specifics of your case. Factors that can affect the value of your case include, but are not limited to, your location, age, work history, pain and suffering, the asbestos products involved in occupational exposure, and expenses related to your illness. Individual cases vary based on such factors, and previous results don't ensure an equal outcome. The factors specific to your case make it difficult to predict its value before you file an asbestos claim. So, determining how much your case is worth can be a complicated process. If you have any questions about settlements and your legal rights, please contact us immediately for a free consultation.
