Are You Fighting Mesothelioma?
Our Mesothelioma Lawyers Want to Help.
Mesothelioma is a relentless disease caused by a relentless fiber: asbestos. Known for its ability to withstand great heat, asbestos does great damage when its tiny fibers are either swallowed or breathed in.
Baron & Budd’s asbestos lawyers were among the first in the country to take on an asbestos-related case, almost 35 years ago, and our dedication to helping people fight has only increased over the years. Today Baron & Budd’s team of dedicated mesothelioma lawyers works across the nation, winning many precedent-setting cases and handling many mesothelioma claims.
- Baron & Budd mesothelioma attorneys won the largest mesothelioma verdict in the state of Texas to date: $55 million for Mr. Alfredo Hernandez, who was exposed to joint compound through his years of work in construction.
- Baron & Budd mesothelioma lawyers won the largest mesothelioma verdict in the nation in 2012: $48 million for Mr. Bobbie Izell, who was exposed to asbestos as a bystander at construction sites.
- Baron and Budd mesothelioma attorneys have won more than 100 individual asbestos verdicts on behalf of patients.
- Within the last four years alone, our mesothelioma lawyers have achieved more than a dozen multi-million dollar verdicts on behalf mesothelioma patients and their families. Some of these include: a $20 million California mesothelioma verdict for a woman who was exposed to asbestos through home renovation projects, and an $8.4 million verdict against Ashland subsidiary Hercules, Inc., for a patient who worked as a piperfitter. This is believed to be the first asbestos cancer verdict ever reached against Hercules.
These are cases that our mesothelioma attorneys handled. You might think it’s obvious but, sadly, the "business" of mesothelioma litigation has attracted many lawyers who have never set foot in a courtroom. Unlike Baron & Budd, these types of "marketing" lawyers merely advertise for cases and then send them to the highest bidder for handling. Read more about our case results.
