Who Qualifies to Work With a Mesothelioma Law Firm?

A wide range of people may qualify to file a lawsuit by working with a mesothelioma law firm.

These include:

  • Mesothelioma patients
  • People with other asbestos-related diseases like lung cancer or asbestosis
  • Family members or loved ones of a person who passed away from an asbestos disease
  • Anyone with legal authority over a mesothelioma patient’s estate

Millions of people were put at risk of mesothelioma before the early 1980s as many industries relied on asbestos-containing products. These products were thought to be safe since manufacturers hid the health risks.

Asbestos exposure is the only known cause of mesothelioma and can also lead to lung cancer and other illnesses. Many of our partner law firm’s past clients were patients who developed mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos while working or serving in the military.

Anyone interested in filing a mesothelioma claim should promptly speak with an asbestos law firm to learn about their legal options.

2. Establish a Strong Attorney-Client Relationship

Top firms have mesothelioma lawyers on staff who will take time to establish a strong attorney-client relationship, allowing you to feel comfortable and confident in working with them.

“Our mesothelioma lawyer, John, made us feel at ease. He didn’t seem like a lawyer — or like what I would see on TV or something like that. He just seemed like he was interested and really cared.”

— Arthur Putt, mesothelioma cancer patient

3. Understand Your Legal Options

Depending on the nature of your exposure and diagnosis, you may qualify to file a mesothelioma lawsuit, asbestos trust fund claims, and claims with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to get compensation and benefits.

You may qualify to file all three types of claims. Our partner law firm’s lawyers will offer legal advice to help you understand the best course of action and help you file all the claims you qualify for.

4. Build a Lawsuit With Ease

If you qualify to file a lawsuit, you can agree to work with a mesothelioma firm, which will then start building your case.

Building a mesothelioma lawsuit includes:

  • Collecting evidence about work history and diagnosis (employment and medical records)
  • Determining the asbestos products you were exposed to and which companies made them
  • Getting statements from witnesses and experts to support your claim
  • Outlining the medical, emotional, and financial damages you’ve suffered
  • Understanding how state, local, and federal laws may impact your lawsuit

With this information, mesothelioma attorneys at your law firm can ensure your lawsuit is as strong as possible before it’s filed.

Your attorney can also help build other mesothelioma compensation claims (such as trust fund claims) depending on your eligibility.

5. Pay No Upfront Fees

Top mesothelioma law firms won’t charge any upfront fees to work with them. Instead, the firm will work on a contingency fee basis, meaning the lawyers on your case will only get paid if they secure compensation for your case.

6. File a Mesothelioma Lawsuit For You

Once your lawsuit has been built, your mesothelioma firm can file it on your behalf. This saves you the time, energy, and hassle of having to do so yourself and allows you to focus on your health and family.

Your mesothelioma law firm will also make sure to file your asbestos lawsuit within the statute of limitations (legal deadline to file).

Your firm will update you regularly as the legal case moves forward.

7. Secure Compensation and Justice

Once your lawsuit has been filed, lawyers at your asbestos law firm will work to get the highest financial payout possible for your case.

Did You Know?

Our partner mesothelioma law firm often secures over $1 million for patients, with some getting even more. Further, many of our past mesothelioma clients have started to get the first legal payouts in 90 days or less.

The firm will typically retrieve compensation through out-of-court settlements with legal teams representing the asbestos companies. However, top asbestos attorneys will also prepare your lawsuit if a settlement isn’t reached and an in-court trial takes place.

Securing compensation is incredibly important as the expenses of a mesothelioma diagnosis can quickly add up — even with insurance. You can use the money to cover all of these costs and protect your family financially if you pass away.

Further, since this compensation is coming from the asbestos companies that harmed you, you can get a sense of justice knowing they were held accountable.

What Types of Cases Do Mesothelioma Law Firms Accept?

Mesothelioma law firms accept both personal injury and wrongful death cases. Learn about each type below.

Mesothelioma Personal Injury Cases

People who developed mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos-containing products can file a personal injury mesothelioma lawsuit.

Through these lawsuits, the mesothelioma law firm can demand a financial payout to cover any expenses and hold asbestos companies liable.

Types of financial compensation secured through a personal injury lawsuit include:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering

Remember: Mesothelioma law firms do all the legal heavy lifting to file a personal injury lawsuit and secure compensation, meaning there is often little to no extra stress for you or your loved one.

Mesothelioma Wrongful Death Cases

If someone passes away from mesothelioma, family members, loved ones, or anyone who represents the estate may qualify to file a mesothelioma wrongful death lawsuit.

A wrongful death mesothelioma case could give you compensation for:

  • The deceased’s medical expenses and lost wages
  • Funeral and burial fees
  • Loss of consortium, companionship, and care
  • Pain and suffering of the deceased and their family

Asbestos wrongful death lawsuits can be filed if a patient dies before taking legal action. Further, a personal injury lawsuit can be continued as a wrongful death case if a patient passes away before the lawsuit concludes. Our partner mesothelioma law firm can help in either case.

Mesothelioma Settlements and Verdicts Our Partner Law Firm Secured

A mesothelioma settlement is a payout both parties agree upon to avoid an in-court trial. Asbestos verdicts, on the other hand, are court decisions that result in a payout. Verdicts take more time and effort than settlements and may award more or less compensation.

Many past mesothelioma patients have received millions of dollars through settlements and trial verdicts by working with our asbestos law firm.

Notable mesothelioma settlements and verdicts include:

  • $250 million to a former steelworker from Indiana (largest mesothelioma verdict on record)
  • $3.75 million settlement to the loved ones of a laborer from Pennsylvania
  • $40.1 million verdict to a U.S. Navy veteran from Washington
  • $34.1 million verdict to a former mechanic in California
  • $4.3 million settlement to a U.S. Army veteran from Florida
  • $2.69 million settlement to the family of a shipyard worker from California

Our partner firm can determine if a settlement or trial verdict would be better for your case.

What to Look For in a Top Mesothelioma Law Firm

When you file a lawsuit, you’re putting your trust in the mesothelioma law firm and its lawyers to secure justice and a financial payout for you.

For this reason, it’s incredibly important to make sure you find the best legal help for your case.

Make sure the law firm you select has:

  • A contingency fee policy: Make sure the firm you choose works on a contingency fee basis so you don’t pay anything upfront or out of pocket to work with them.
  • A strong track record: Your law firm should have handled many other mesothelioma lawsuits successfully. For example, our legal partners have recovered over $9 billion for asbestos exposure victims.
  • Databases of information: Our partner mesothelioma law firm has useful information about the asbestos industry stored in a database. The firm’s lawyers can use this information to make your case as strong as possible.
  • Mesothelioma specialization: Your law firm should have lawyers with extensive experience handling mesothelioma cases. Our partner firm, for example, has helped mesothelioma patients for over 20 years.
