New Hampshire Statute of Limitations for Mesothelioma
In New Hampshire, the statute of limitations for mesothelioma and asbestos claims is 3 years from the date of diagnosis. For wrongful death claims, victims’ families have 3 years from the time a loved one passes away to file their claim.
Because there is only a short time to gather evidence and file a claim, victims in New Hampshire and their families are encouraged to consult a mesothelioma lawyer who is experienced with these claims. Failing to act before the statute of limitations runs out could result in a loss of rights to compensation for you or your family.
