The statute of limitations to make a mesothelioma claim is two years from the date of the diagnosis or from the date of death if no diagnosis was made and there is a finding of mesothelioma in an autopsy or medical report.  Because mesothelioma is a latent disease there is a difference between the exposure date and the diagnosis date and therefore the “discovery rule” comes into place when determining the statute of limitations.
