How Do You Choose a Mesothelioma Attorney?

How Do You Choose a Mesothelioma Attorney?

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you are undoubtedly angry and frightened. We can help you hold those accountable for their actions that exposed you or your loved one to toxic materials. You should bring a claim against those responsible and you shouldn’t go at it alone. You need a lawyer who is skilled and experienced in this area of the law.

Choosing the best, most appropriate attorney can be overwhelming. Here are some factors you should consider when choosing a lawyer:

  1. Experience– You want an attorney who has pursued similar cases. It is long settled that asbestos causes mesothelioma and other illnesses. Lawyers who have handled mesothelioma cases will have the experience you need to get the best possible results for your asbestos claim.
  2. Expertise –You want a firm that specializes in complex litigation. They will have the research materials based on prior cases and will have the skills needed to take on large companies. A general practice attorney will not get better results than a firm that focuses on complex litigation cases.
  3. Track Record – You want a law firm that can demonstrate that they have a history of success in dealing with cases like yours. But it’s not only important that they have a track record of wins – it’s also important that they have won significant settlements for their mesothelioma clients. Wins are good, but impressive wins are even better. You want a law firm that does both and does it consistently for their asbestos clients.
  4. Compassion – You don’t want a law firm that just sees you as a case number – you want a law firm that cares. Because you’re dealing with a serious illness, added stress associated with a legal claim is the last thing that you need to deal with. You need a firm that understands the nature of your illness, the anxiety you face and the uncertainty you’re feeling about your mesothelioma diagnosis and prognosis. You need a firm that cares about you!
