Yes, you can still file a mesothelioma case, even while you're part of a clinical trial.
For example, in August 2018, the National Cancer Institute supported 34 different clinical trials for the treatment of malignant mesothelioma. The outcome of these trials is currently unknown. However, the goal of each trial is to either improve a mesothelioma sufferer’s quality of life or to extend it.
How a Clinical Trial Impacts a Mesothelioma Case
Whether or not you're involved in a clinical trial, your mesothelioma financial recovery is based on your unique damages.
Specifically, you may be able to recover financial damages for your medical expenses, lost income, out-of-pocket costs, physical pain, and emotional suffering. In some cases, you may also be able to recover punitive damages.
The results of participating in clinical trial may impact the calculation of your damages, but it doesn't prevent you from filing a mesothelioma lawsuit, or recovering damages for the significant illness you've suffered.
