Florida Mesothelioma Lawsuits
Florida has a large percentage of residents who suffer from mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease. In fact, Florida trails only California in the number of asbestos-related deaths that occur in the state every year. Because of this, Florida also has a very high number of mesothelioma lawsuits on the books.

Statute of Limitations
In the state of Florida, mesothelioma lawsuits are restricted by a statute of limitations. Legally, a Florida mesothelioma lawsuit must be filed within four years from the date the mesothelioma was diagnosed. If you have lost a loved one to mesothelioma, you need to know that the statute of limitations for Florida wrongful death lawsuits is two years. In Florida, a "delayed discovery doctrine" means that the statute of limitations begins when a person learns of his or her mesothelioma or asbestos exposure, not from the date of the exposure itself. This is because mesothelioma has a particularly long latency period, and may not be diagnosed until decades after the exposure to asbestos occurred.
