Evidence that might help to prove asbestos exposure

On Behalf of | Jun 5, 2023 | Asbestos |

Asbestos exposure is dangerous, as it can lead to several diseases, including mesothelioma, a type of cancer that develops on the lining that covers organs, such as the heart, stomach and lungs. If this is your case, you can file a mesothelioma claim against your employer or the party in charge of the situation in which you were exposed to asbestos fibers.

This guide highlights the evidence you will need for your case.

Medical records

Medical documentation is crucial for any health-related cases, and this is true for mesothelioma claims. You will provide your test results, pathology reports and medications to prove you have mesothelioma. 

Work history

Your work history should help determine who is liable for your condition. If you have worked for one or two employers, this may be more manageable. But if you have worked with a couple of companies, you will assess your work history, analyze your job duties and the products you worked with, to discover where the exposure might have happened. 

Witnesses

Once you know the job that may have led to the exposure, you should find witnesses. Note that mesothelioma may take years before showing its first symptoms. Thus, you may be looking for colleagues from years ago. Nonetheless, finding them may not be difficult, as you may have contacts of some, and the company in question may also have their information.

It will help to track your co-workers because some may also be suffering from mesothelioma or may have crucial information that can support your claim. 

The lengthy latency period of mesothelioma can make it challenging to prove when the exposure happened and the liable party. However, with legal guidance, you should gather the evidence discussed above, strengthening your case.
