Choosing a Mesothelioma Lawyer
We’ve been helping mesothelioma patients around the country for the last twenty-five years and are comfortable pursuing the toughest cases.
What does a "tough" mesothelioma case look like? It could be a mesothelioma case with an out of the ordinary type of asbestos exposure (like wives exposed to asbestos from washing their husband’s clothes, children exposed to asbestos in their homes, or dentists exposed to asbestos when making gold crowns). Or it could be a mesothelioma case against one of the asbestos companies that refuses to offer fair settlements, and takes every case to trial. Either way, our lawyers are not afraid to roll up their sleeves and do the hard work to find the truth and pursue justice for you and your family.
The reality is that we don’t see these situations as “tough.” We see these situations as part of our mission to help people with all types of asbestos exposure, including unusual situations, get the help they deserve. Call us today at 855-794-9771 or use the contact form for a free case consultation.
We’re not the kind of mesothelioma law firm that is so obsessed with a high volume of clients that we refer most of our cases to other firms, who actually do the work. We’re also not one of those “too big firms” that have a reputation for not returning calls after the initial papers are signed. When you hire us, you can expect us to work on your case from start to finish. We want to build that personal relationship with you.
That’s why we’re known as “that kind of law firm.”
What kind of questions do you need to ask when choosing a potential law firm?
ONE – Ask the law firm if they actually handle mesothelioma litigation or if they plan to refer your case to someone else. It is in your best interest to work with someone who will handle your case and is not merely getting a fee for being a middleman.
TWO – Ask the law firm for examples of verdicts, settlements and bankruptcy filings.
THREE – Ask to speak to the lawyer who will head up your case.
Exposure to asbestos fibers is a known cause of Mesothelioma. Asbestos fibers are very small and when they have been released into the air, they can be inhaled into the lungs or swallowed. The asbestos fibers, because they are so small, tend to lodge into the lung tissue where they accumulate. Mesothelioma is a very rare cancer with only 3,200 new diagnoses a year in the United States. The asbestos lodged in the mesothelial tissue lining the lung or abdomen and can remain latent for 20 to 50 or more years before Mesothelioma appears. Pleural Mesothelia is the most common form. Asbestos can also cause lung cancer and other respiratory diseases.
Several of the companies that manufactured asbestos knew that asbestos was dangerous, but they kept that fact from the public and their workers.
