How and where were you exposed to asbestos in Wisconsin

Heavy industries such as manufacturing, metal, and paper mills in Wisconsin made use of asbestos extensively in their machines and buildings, thereby increasing the risk of asbestos exposure-related disease in their workers. Wisconsin, being the largest producer of paper products, houses a large number of paper mills. Georgia-Pacific established many paper manufacturing plants in the state where asbestos was used for insulation of the equipment used to manufacture paper.

Do you qualify for asbestos compensation?

If you were injured by occupational asbestos exposure and struggle with one of the diseases below, you are immediately eligible for compensation. Since these are very serious diseases that are directly linked to asbestos exposure, all you have to do is give our law firm a call and send our legal experts the necessary documents for filing a claim.

Lung Cancer Mesothelioma Throat Cancer Esophageal Cancer Bronchial Cancer Gastrointestinal Cancer Colorectal Cancer

On the other hand, if you suffer from one of the following diseases and suspect it was the result of asbestos exposure, you will be required to undergo free, additional medical tests with our medical team in Birmingham, Alabama in person. Because the connection between these health problems and asbestos exposure is not completely clear, we will need to find out whether asbestos exposure is the real cause of your diagnosis.

Asbestos exposure diseases
statute of limitations in Wisconsin

Be aware of critical legal limitations to file a successful asbestos claim in Wisconsin. You should submit your legal request before the specified time limit, or it can get rejected. The legal rule is called the statute of limitations and time limits vary from state to state. Personal injury statute of limitations for lung cancer and other asbestos claims in Wisconsin is two years from the date of the diagnosis of the condition.

Statutes of limitations for wrongful death apply to family members of a lung cancer patient who has passed away. The statutory limit for a wrongful death asbestos claim is the same as the personal injury statute, and family members can file the asbestos claim within two years from the death of their loved one.

Wisconsin enforced earlier a “last exposure rule” that had a statute of limitations of only 1-year from the last exposure for people filing asbestos claims, which made it tough for lung cancer and asbestos-related pulmonary diseases patients or their families to seek compensation from the companies responsible for their asbestos exposure in the workplace. However, in May 1980, the “last exposure rule” was amended to establish a more favorable “discovery rule” for asbestos claims. For asbestos claims in which the last exposure has occurred before 1979, the 1-year statute of limitations is still applicable, and for any asbestos exposure in the workplace that has occurred after May 17, 1980, the statute of limitations starts when the diagnosis of mesothelioma, lung cancer, or other diseases has been received.

Filing an asbestos claim in Wisconsin

Current and former residents of Wisconsin diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease, and their family members should contact us as soon as possible. The statutes of limitations are only two 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.

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. The case valuation matrix is a document approximating historical settlement 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
$960,000
Lung Cancer
$258,000
Other Cancer
$122,000
Non Malignant Diseases
$78,000

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.
