One of the first questions people ask is, “Are there time limitations to filing a mesothelioma lung cancer claim?” The answer is yes. There are strict time limitations to filing a claim.

Watch this video by experienced New York mesothelioma attorney Michael A. Ponterio to find out how long you have to file a mesothelioma claim in New York State.

Under New York law, you have three years from the date you manifest the symptoms giving rise to your cancer to file a claim. However, we strongly recommend that you contact an attorney as soon as possible when you’re diagnosed.  It is extremely important to preserve your testimony and file a lawsuit as soon as possible.
