Mississippi Mesothelioma Statute of Limitations
In Mississippi, the statute of limitations for mesothelioma and asbestos claims is 3 years from diagnosis. For wrongful death claims, however, victims’ families have only 3 years from the time a loved one passes away to file their claim, according to the statute.
Because there is only a short time to gather evidence and file a claim, mesothelioma victims in Mississippi and their families must act quickly to find a lawyer who is experienced with asbestos-related 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.
