Mesothelioma Lawsuit: You’ll Never Send Baron & Budd a Dime
One of the most commonly asked questions we receive regarding mesothelioma lawsuits is how much we charge to represent clients. The simple answer is nothing. You will never have to pay us anything – we won’t send you any bill for our representation. The reason is we work on a contingency basis. If your case is successful, we will receive a percentage of your award. Here’s some more information on some of the financial aspects of a mesothelioma case.
Many mesothelioma lawsuits never reach the inside of a courtroom. Rather, they are settled out of court. But in order to have the best chance of reaching a fair settlement with the companies responsible for your mesothelioma diagnosis, your attorneys will have to proceed as if the case will go to trial.
A settlement is an amount of money offered by a defendant to a plaintiff in a lawsuit. The reason it’s offered is to have the case dismissed and spare the expense of a trial. It is often in the defendant’s best interest to offer a settlement. Court cases can be very expensive, and the defendant stands to potentially lose a great deal more money if a jury or judge rules in the plaintiff’s favor.
But there are several advantages available to plaintiffs as well when accepting a settlement. They know exactly how much money they will receive, and they can also usually collect their money much faster than if the case went to trial.
