West Virginia Lawsuits For Asbestos Exposure
West Virginia has created a separate docket to handle its asbestos cases. Asbestos cases in West Virginia are handled as part of the West Virginia Mass Litigation Panel. All asbestos cases are controlled by the Honorable Ronald Wilson, who was appointed to handle all the asbestos cases.
Protocol For West Virginia Asbestos Lawsuits
Judge Wilson has issued a standing order that governs all asbestos cases. He has set up a trial system that enables 60 cases a year to proceed to trial. He has accomplished this by having three trial groups (February, June and October) a year with 20 cases per trial group. He has also structured the system so that the most serious cases are given priority.
Immediately prior to trial, Judge Wilson holds two days of settlement talks where he gets involved and tries to get both sides to come to a reasonable resolution of the case. Due to the efficient nature of the system that Judge Wilson has implemented, asbestos victims are able to get a prompt trial in West Virginia.
