How To File a Mesothelioma Lawsuit

Filing a successful asbestos or mesothelioma claim requires a strategic approach. Basic steps include:

Step 1: Contacting a Mesothelioma Lawyer

Seeking guidance from a skilled and knowledgeable mesothelioma lawyer increases your chances of securing a favorable outcome. Our attorneys will meet with you where you are most comfortable to assess the unique details of your claim, make sure you know your legal rights, and guide you through the claims process.

Step 2: Collecting Evidence To Prove Your Asbestos Exposure

The success of your mesothelioma claim requires collecting solid evidence of your asbestos exposure. This may include things like employment records, medical reports, corporate records, witness statements, and expert testimony. Your evidence should strengthen the foundation of your claim by tying your asbestos-related illness to the defendant’s actions (or failure to take action).

Over the past 20 years, The Gori Law Firm has accrued a vast database of exposure sites, asbestos products, witness testimony, and more that allows us to pinpoint the sources of your exposure no matter where they occurred in the United States.

Step 3: Filing Your Mesothelioma Lawsuit

Once your evidence is compiled, your mesothelioma attorney will develop and file your asbestos lawsuit. This process involves submitting necessary documentation and paperwork to the appropriate entities before relevant deadlines.

Step 4: You Receive Compensation, or We Fight for You in Court

At The Gori Law Firm, we stand by your side at every step of the legal process. Your mesothelioma lawyer will seek compensation through out-of-court negotiations and, if necessary, in-court litigation. 

In most cases, victims receive their compensation through a negotiated settlement. However, we are ready to vigorously represent you in court if negotiations don’t yield full and fair compensation. Our commitment is to secure the best possible outcomes for our clients, resulting in us recovering over $4 billion for mesothelioma victims over the past 20 years.
