Working With a Mesothelioma Lawyer in Nevada

Nevada residents who develop mesothelioma cancer deserve financial compensation from manufacturers of asbestos-based products. Asbestos exposure remains the only known cause of mesothelioma — and manufacturers hid the dangers to make more money.

Over 300 Nevada residents died from mesothelioma between 1999 and 2017, according to the Environmental Working Group (EWG).

The Nevada Central Cancer Registry recorded nearly 300 mesothelioma cases between 1995 and 2008. While mesothelioma mainly affects senior men, 40 of those diagnosed were less than 55 years old and roughly 60 were women. Some victims were even in their 30s.

Nevada Mesothelioma Lawsuits

Nevada mesothelioma lawyers file lawsuits so asbestos victims can cover the costs of medical treatments and other expenses.

Asbestos victims receive $1 Million to $2.4 Million on average from mesothelioma lawsuits.

Successful mesothelioma lawsuits force manufacturers of asbestos products to pay for causing a victim’s illness or death. It costs nothing for victims to file these lawsuits and Nevada mesothelioma attorneys take on almost all of the legal burdens.

Mesothelioma Settlements and Verdicts in Nevada

Mesothelioma lawsuits reach out-of-court settlements more than 95% of the time. A mesothelioma settlement allows the lawsuit to resolve relatively quickly and avoid a risky trial.

Mesothelioma victims typically receive $1 Million from settlements.

Lawsuits that do not settle go to a trial before a jury. The jury then determines if a mesothelioma victim deserves compensation or not through a verdict. While some victims received compensation from a mesothelioma trial verdict, others got nothing.

A former plant operator sued Nevada Power of Las Vegas after he was exposed to asbestos at a power station decades earlier. The jury awarded him $2 Million.

In another case, a former maintenance worker at Harrah’s Las Vegas Casino sued the hotel for $10 Million after he was exposed to asbestos on the job. The worker stated that his superiors failed to protect him during renovation projects at the hotel. It is unclear if this case has been settled or not.

Statute of Limitations in Nevada

Statutes of limitations are laws that restrict the time someone has to file a lawsuit.

Asbestos victims or their loved ones cannot file a personal injury or wrongful death mesothelioma lawsuit once the statute of limitations passes in their case.

Statutes of limitations vary greatly by state and type of case, making them quite hard to understand without a lawyer’s help.

Contact a Nevada mesothelioma lawyer as soon as you can to learn more about these statutes. Don’t miss your chance to file a mesothelioma lawsuit.

Asbestos Trust Funds and Statutes of Limitations

If an asbestos victim cannot file a lawsuit, they could still be able to access compensation through an asbestos trust fund.

Trust funds are not subject to state law because they are managed by bankrupt manufacturers of asbestos products. These companies set their own deadlines to file claims.

Mesothelioma lawyers in Nevada can help you file an asbestos trust fund claim.

Asbestos Sites in Nevada

It was once thought that there was no naturally found asbestos in the state of Nevada — but in 2013, scientists found several asbestos deposits in Clark County. Asbestos has since been found throughout 1 million acres in the county.

Across the state, other scientists found that natural erosion and commercial development could release asbestos fibers into the air.

For example, repair work on older buildings in Las Vegas that still contain asbestos could put people at risk if state guidelines aren’t followed.

Other examples of asbestos sites in Nevada include:

  • SA Texaco, Belgium
  • MGM Grand, Paradise
  • Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas
  • Caesars Palace, Las Vegas
  • Nevada Pipeline, Las Vegas

Asbestos Rules and Regulations in Nevada

These laws impact:

  • Brake and clutch work
  • Custodial work

State requirements for asbestos use must be at least as strict as federal requirements or the federal rules apply.
