The Tragedy of Mesothelioma and Asbestos in Alabama
Mesothelioma. Lung cancer. Asbestos. You may have never thought about those things. But that has changed. Maybe you or someone you love has been diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer. Or you may be a person who has lost a loved one because of mesothelioma or lung cancer or some other asbestos disease.
Asbestos may be to blame
If that describes you, there are two things you should know. The first is that asbestos may be to blame. Medical experts say mesothelioma and lung cancer are directly linked to asbestos exposure. The most common place for asbestos exposure is the workplace, but one can be exposed outside the workplace as well. You may be sick with an asbestos-related illness today even if your exposure to asbestos occurred as long as 70 years ago or more.

In CASTORENA V. GENERAL ELECTRIC et al. Utah Supreme Court found that:
The statute of limitations applies to each actionable wrong individually. As the actionable wrong for a wrongful death action is not complete until the death of the decedent, the statute of limitations does not begin running until that time. Therefore, we hold that the condition precedent does not apply to the statute of limitations, and the Appellants here filed their wrongful death actions in a timely fashion.
