Do I Need to Hire A Mesothelioma Lawyer?

If you or your loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, an experienced mesothelioma lawyer can help you recover the full measure of compensation you deserve. 

Most personal injury claims involve a one-time incident that both sides agree occurred. The identities of the involved parties are already known, and insurance policies typically cover the defendants.

However, mesothelioma claims are very different. The disease results from long-term asbestos exposure decades before your diagnosis. Before pursuing compensation, you must determine how you were exposed and identify those responsible. The liable parties may be companies you never dealt with directly or even knew existed.

How Do I Know If I Need A Mesothelioma Lawyer?

Although no law requires a lawyer to file a mesothelioma lawsuit, you will need extensive financial resources, medical and legal knowledge, and familiarity with the asbestos industry to succeed. 

Without an attorney, you will have to take on wealthy asbestos product manufacturers alone. They will hire medical and scientific experts to support their defense, and you’ll need to invest significant funds to hire experts to refute them. 

Settlement negotiations, case investigation, depositions, filing requirements, and discovery can be mentally and physically taxing. It can be too much to handle when your health is deteriorating. Without a capable attorney representing you, asbestos product manufacturers will try to stall your case and take advantage of your weakened state.

Many asbestos product manufacturers have gone bankrupt, shielding them from lawsuits. Courts have ordered these companies to establish asbestos trust funds to compensate asbestos-exposure victims. Asbestos trust fund claims are less complicated than lawsuits, but you will still need to know which companies exposed you to asbestos and gather evidence to support your claim.

Questions To Ask Yourself If You Are Unsure

If you’re still unsure whether or not you need a mesothelioma lawyer for your claim, here are some questions to consider:

  • Do I or a family member understand our legal rights and options for seeking compensation?
  • Do I or a family member feel comfortable navigating complex legal procedures and negotiations with potentially liable parties?
  • Do I or a family member have the time, resources, and knowledge to gather the necessary evidence and build a strong case?
  • Do I or a family member feel confident we can negotiate a fair settlement or pursue litigation if necessary?
  • Do I or a family member have concerns about protecting our rights and securing financial support for medical treatment, lost wages, and other expenses related to mesothelioma?
