Missouri Statute of Limitations for Mesothelioma
The statute of limitations for mesothelioma claims in Missouri is 5 years from date of diagnosis. For wrongful death claims, families have 3 years from the time a loved one passes away.
It’s important to consult a mesothelioma lawyer who is experienced with asbestos-related claims following diagnosis. Delaying action could result in the statute of limitations expiring, which would mean you no longer have the right to compensation.
