We Come to You
We have offices in California, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, Texas and Washington, D.C., but we travel to all 50 states representing mesothelioma patients and families. We’ve represented clients and families like you in every state, making trips to the hospital and visiting clients at home.
When you hire our mesothelioma law firm, our attorneys do all of the work for you.
If the company that exposed you to the carcinogenic asbestos has a trust fund set up for personal injury claims, you may not need to file a lawsuit to get a mesothelioma settlement.
If you do not want to file a lawsuit because you think you will not be able to fulfill court dates and other obligations, please listen closely.
By hiring legal counsel and filing a lawsuit against those responsible for your exposure, you will:
- Show Asbestos Companies that They Can’t Get Away With This
- Secure the Financial Future of Your Family
- Help Prevent Other Companies from Committing Similar Acts of Negligence
If you still do not wish to file a lawsuit, our mesothelioma lawyers can determine your eligibility for an out-of-court trust fund settlement from the asbestos companies that caused your cancer.
The type of claim you are eligible to receive depends on a few factors including the company responsible, how much asbestos you were exposed to and for how long, and whether there was any military exposure. You may be eligible for one or more of these legal claims:
- VA Mesothelioma Claim
- Filing a Private Lawsuit
- Out-of-Court Settlement
- Asbestos Bankruptcy Trust Fund Settlement
In some cases, you might be eligible to file a combination of claims depending on the individual circumstances and the state in which the claim if filed. The mesothelioma settlement amount you agree to is negotiated by our experienced Mesothelioma Lawyers.
There are many types of compensation that you can ask for in a lawsuit, trust fund, or VA claim. Types of compensation that are common in personal injury cases include:
- Medical Bill Reimbursement
- Money for Time Off Work
- Money for Pain, Suffering, and Mental Anguish
- Compensation for the Salary You Would Have Earned from Working if Not Diagnosed with Mesothelioma
- Punitive Damages to Punish the Company for Wrongdoing
If you lost a loved one to mesothelioma, you may still be able to seek compensation for all of the reasons listed above, in addition to wrongful death damages. Wrongful death claim eligibility varies by state, so check with our legal team to see if you qualify to file both claims and, if so, what specifically how you can be compensated for your loss.
You can ask for compensation for pleural mesothelioma cancer or any of the other less common but equally dangerous types including peritoneal, pericardial, sarcomatoid, epithelial, or other malignant mesothelioma.
Unfortunately, the life expectancy for people after a diagnosis is 12 to 18 months. However, your family, spouse, and other dependents may be able to receive a future settlement in the event that you pass before a mesothelioma settlement or trial award is finalized. Don’t worry.
Our mesothelioma lawyers will make all of the arrangements at the beginning of your case to ensure that your spouse or other family member[s] can receive the money owed to you should you succumb to your illness before the lawsuit finishes.
There is no cost to file a lawsuit because we operate on a contingency fee basis. You only pay us if we win a settlement, trial verdict award, or mesothelioma trust fund payment. We work out all of the details in a written contract, there are no hidden fees and your family will never have to pay anything out-of-pocket.
