Hiring an experienced lawyer is a critical first step for those diagnosed with mesothelioma in holding companies accountable and seeking compensation for the damages caused by asbestos exposure.
Choosing a mesothelioma attorney is a very personal choice. The ideal lawyer not only has the resources and experience to get you the compensation you deserve, but he or she is also responsive to your needs, sympathetic to your unique medical situation, and completely invested in the future of your family.
Before collaborating with a lawyer, it is critical to ask questions to determine whether he or she is qualified to handle your case. These could include:
- How well do you understand the various options for seeking compensation?
- What experience do you have with trust fund claims and mesothelioma lawsuits?
- Can you be reached easily if I have any questions during the process?
- Do you have the necessary resources to make my cases successful?
Few lawyers can match the experience, resources, and compassionate legal assistance that Weitz & Luxenberg attorneys have provided asbestos victims for over 30 years. We have 33,000 asbestos cases under our belt and are ready to assist even more families in seeking justice.
Understand Your Options
There are several avenues of compensation available to mesothelioma cancer patients and their families. You may choose to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit and/or file a claim against an asbestos bankruptcy trust, depending on your circumstances. Whatever path you ultimately take, Weitz & Luxenberg lawyers are committed to making the process simple and stress-free so you can focus on your health and loved ones.
A track record of success
Damages from mesothelioma cancer can include pain and suffering, lost wages, and costly treatments not covered by your health insurance, making it even more important to hire an attorney with a high chance of success.
One of our first court victories was in a landmark consolidated trial on behalf of 36 shipbuilders who were exposed to asbestos at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in the 1940s and 1950s. The verdict: a $75 million victory that altered the asbestos litigation landscape.
Over the last 30 years, Weitz & Luxenberg attorneys have assisted over 50,000 clients in navigating the most difficult time of their lives, providing significant personal attention while winning a staggering $8.5 billion in asbestos verdicts and settlements across the United States.
