What Happens to a Mesothelioma Lawsuit if a Person Dies Before the Case is Resolved?

If the plaintiff in an asbestos/mesothelioma case dies before the claim or lawsuit is fully resolved, states have procedures which allow the case to continue.

Due to the severity of mesothelioma and the often absence of symptoms, until the disease has progressed, many victims are in very poor condition by the time a claim is filed.

Should the plaintiff pass away before the claim is resolved, a representative of the estate of the plaintiff may be designated to step in and assume the role of the deceased plaintiff so that the claim or lawsuit may continue.
