Florida Probate for Mesothelioma & Asbestos Litigation

What is Mesothelioma?

Mesotheolioma is a form of cancer that creates a thin tissue layer which covers internal organs, most commonly in the lining of the lungs and the chest wall.

More than 80% of mesothelioma cases are caused by exposure to asbestos.

Probate for mesothelioma asbestos litigation
As a result, there has been plenty of asbestos litigation over the last few decades and trust funds have been established for payment of past and future claims against asbestos manufacturers. Over $30 billion dollars have been accounted for within these trust fund coffers.

What is Probate and why does it matter?

Because of the number of deaths linked to asbestos caused mesothelioma, many victims die before or during the litigation or settlement of their lawsuits. In order for the cases to continue, most courts require that an executor, administration or personal representative be appointed to begin or continue the litigation.

Probate is the court-supervised process of administering a deceased person's estate. Even if the deceased died penniless, a probate may be necessary to sue for or receive proceeds from any litigation on behalf of the deceased.

In a nutshell, if the plaintiff dies, probate will be necessary.
