The third article in the U.S. Declaration of Human Rights states that everyone has the ‘right to life’. And for this reason that any person who may have contracted a disease for work-related reasons is a clear violation of his human right to life. In the case of those suffering from asbestos-related diseases contracted in the workplace, the third article gives them the right to file for a mesothelioma claim against the company responsible for their condition. When an individual files for a claim, the lawsuit should be filed by an asbestos lawyer experienced in this type of case in behalf of the victim. An experienced legal expert can assist in maximizing the amount of compensation that a victim can get and the success of the case will depend on the expertise of the attorney. This compensation is intended to pay all the medical expenses and to provide financial support to the family of the victim in case he/she passes away.
