California Mesothelioma Lawyer

Asbestos exposure is the sole known cause of mesothelioma, an aggressive and deadly cancer. Californians may develop mesothelioma if they have worked in certain occupations around the material or handled asbestos-containing products. The Gori Law Firm represents clients in mesothelioma claims, helping to recover compensation for victims and their families.

California Mesothelioma Compensation Options

The lawyers at the Gori Law Firm have over 100 years of combined experience litigating mesothelioma claims. We help mesothelioma victims and their families navigate the complex legal processes to get the compensation they deserve. 

Our California mesothelioma lawyers take an empathetic approach with all of our clients. We’ll begin by discussing your mesothelioma diagnosis and current medical prognosis. Once we understand your circumstances, we’ll investigate the source of your asbestos exposure. Potential causes could be your occupation, worksite, or asbestos-containing products.

We can pursue mesothelioma compensation through several means:

  • Asbestos trust funds: When the dangers of asbestos came to light and mesothelioma victims began to file lawsuits, some asbestos manufacturers and distributors sought bankruptcy protection. The courts ordered several companies to establish asbestos trust funds for future victims. Depending on the source of your asbestos exposure, you may be eligible to file claims with these trust funds. 
  • Mesothelioma lawsuit: Companies that create or distribute asbestos-containing products may be at fault for your illness. If we determine an organization is responsible for exposing you to asbestos, we can file a lawsuit against them. A mesothelioma lawsuit may secure significant compensation for future medical and living expenses.
  • VA claims: Until the 1980s, the military used asbestos for many purposes, including construction, shipbuilding, mining, and demolition. Nearly all veterans during this time were exposed to asbestos in some form, although certain occupations were at greater risk. If we can trace your mesothelioma diagnosis to your prior military service, you may be eligible for VA disability benefits, including monthly compensation and health care.
  • Wrongful death: Survivors of mesothelioma victims may secure compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit. If successful, a wrongful death lawsuit provides compensation for funeral and burial costs, emotional distress, lost financial support, and loss of companionship. 

Our mesothelioma attorneys in California will determine which legal options are most appropriate for your case.
