By choosing the right attorney, you can receive experienced legal guidance to help both you and your family.
Tens of thousands of lawsuits have been filed against asbestos manufacturers alleging that the asbestos industry knew for decades that asbestos was dangerous yet did nothing to protect their employees and customers. By filing a lawsuit, you can hold these companies accountable for their wrongful actions and recover compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other damages stemming from the diagnosis.
Whether you can file a lawsuit will depend on a number of factors, including whether the company responsible for your exposure has filed for bankruptcy. In general, mesothelioma victims cannot sue bankrupt asbestos companies; however, many of these companies have set up asbestos trusts to compensate mesothelioma victims and their loved ones. Your attorney will be
able to determine the legal options available to you. If more than one company is believed to be responsible for your exposure, you may be able to file multiple lawsuits and/or trust fund claims. Many mesothelioma lawsuits settle; however, you should seek an attorney that has experience taking asbestos manufacturers to court to get their clients the compensation they deserve.
