Asbestos Statute of Limitations in Indiana
All states have statutes of limitations (time limits on filing lawsuits), and you need to make sure your lawsuit is filed within these deadlines. Otherwise, mesothelioma lawyers won’t be able to get compensation for you.
The statute of limitations for mesothelioma lawsuits in Indiana is 2 years from the date of diagnosis or the victim’s death.
There may still be time to file a lawsuit even if you think the statute of limitations has passed in your case. Call (877) 450-8973 now to get help finding Indiana mesothelioma lawyers who can explain your legal options.

Asbestos is the only known cause of mesothelioma, and these companies knew the risks for decades but said nothing.

Asbestos Trust Funds
Many asbestos companies filed for bankruptcy to avoid being sued, but were forced to set up asbestos trust funds. These trusts contain large sums of money meant to reimburse those who got sick from using the companies’ products.
As of 2023, asbestos trust funds hold over $30 billion, and you may be able to access some of this money by filing a claim.
Our Indiana mesothelioma lawyers can determine if any asbestos products you were exposed to were made by companies that now have trusts and file claims on your behalf.
U.S. veterans diagnosed with mesothelioma may be eligible for benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
