We’ve Taken the Fight Against Asbestos to the Supreme Court: On Our Long History of Fighting Mesothelioma
We’re used to hearing that in life there are winners and losers. What we don’t hear — and what may be even more important, especially in today’s ever-competitive world — is that in life there are people who reach the finish line first, and people who reach it later, and people who reach it even later again.
The wonderful thing about the people who reach the finish line first and their big gift to society is the fact that they trail blaze, they help figure out how things should be done on the go, they help pave the rules and the ways for the people who come after. And while the people who come after might be highly qualified or hardworking, there’s no denying that it takes a special brand of person to be in the crosses-the-finish-line-first category. For these people, it’s not about winning. No, it’s about something so much more.
We couldn’t be more proud of our team of mesothelioma lawyers and all that they do for their mesothelioma lawsuit clients for this specific reason. It’s largely because of our mesothelioma lawyers and our firm’s long history of fighting in the front lines of mesothelioma litigation that all people who have mesothelioma have the rights that they do today to file mesothelioma lawsuits and seek financial compensation for their injuries.
All of our mesothelioma lawyers’ trailblazing means that you can benefit from our mesothelioma lawyers even if you are not represented by one yourself. All you have to be is someone who is affected by mesothelioma in some fashion, either as a family member, friend or loved one. If you are, then you’ve felt our mesothelioma lawyer’s far-reaching impact, even if you don’t know it.
It’s largely because of our mesothelioma lawyers that you have the right to file second- injury asbestos lawsuits — say, if you filed a lawsuit after developing asbestosis and then needed to file a second lawsuit after you developed mesothelioma. In addition, we’ve helped to negotiate asbestos bankruptcy trusts, for the sake of all people who are injured by asbestos today — and all people who may be injured by asbestos in the future, too. In addition, we’ve represented some of the most high-profile families in the United States in their own mesothelioma lawsuits, helping to put mesothelioma and asbestos awareness on the map.
And perhaps most critical of all, we’ve been behind two of the most important, landmark cases in asbestos litigation history.
We’ve said it before: No other law firm has gone to bat for the rights of mesothelioma victims to the extent that Baron & Budd has. The proof is in everything our mesothelioma lawyers do, and we could not be more proud of them!
