In the current Texas court system, mesothelioma sufferers who are seeking compensation must meet the same legal requirements as those who are suffering from asbestosis. This can make it very difficult for some victims to have their cases heard in their lifetimes. However, a new bill may lower the causation standard, making it easier for mesothelioma sufferers to prove their cases.
In addition to helping mesothelioma sufferers get the compenstation that they deserve, this bill will protect defendants who should not be held liable. In some cases, defendants who had no part in exposing victims to asbestos can still be held liable. This bill would keep those defendants safe while holding accountable those who really are liable.
