If you or a loved one was exposed to asbestos and developed mesothelioma, you have options to seek justice and compensation. However, finding the right lawyer is crucial to securing the best case outcome. An experienced mesothelioma lawyer has the skills and resources to advocate for you and fight for the compensation you need and deserve.

When searching for a mesothelioma attorney, you want to find a legal professional with proven knowledge about the complexities of these cases. You also need a lawyer who aligns with your needs and goals. If you’re ready to proceed with your mesothelioma claim, here are vital questions to ask your mesothelioma lawyer before moving forward.

Important Questions To Ask Your Mesothelioma Lawyer

At The Gori Law Firm, we understand how important it is to work with a top-rated asbestos attorney on your mesothelioma claim. These are unique cases requiring special skills and experience to maximize your recovery.

The following questions will help you learn more about the firm and determine whether the attorneys are qualified to handle your case. You’ll also better understand your rights, the cost of working with an attorney, and if you qualify to claim compensation. Use this comprehensive checklist when meeting with a lawyer about your mesothelioma claim.

You may be eligible for significant compensation that The Gori Law Firm can fight for on your behalf.

How Much Will It Cost To Hire a Mesothelioma Lawyer?

As a client, you want to know how much an attorney will cost. While many lawyers do not charge upfront fees, some law firms have hidden fees or costs associated with their services. Make sure you understand these costs before agreeing to work with any lawyer.

Here are questions to ask your mesothelioma attorney about fees:

  • Do they work on a contingency fee basis? If so, what percentage do they charge?
  • Are there any upfront costs?
  • What expenses might you incur during the litigation process?
  • How are fees handled if the case is unsuccessful?

The Gori Law Firm works on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not owe us anything unless we win your case. You never pay upfront fees or out-of-pocket expenses to work with our team.

What Are My Legal Options?

Next, ask your attorney about your legal options. Although some mesothelioma cases go to trial, there are other ways to resolve a claim. You could be entitled to receive compensation through a negotiated settlement or an asbestos trust fund. Every case is unique, and the best option will depend on the details of your claim.

Our award-winning mesothelioma lawyers have extensive experience with asbestos-related claims. We know how to push your case forward and claim the maximum amount for your damages. We can explain your rights and explore your legal options with a free consultation.

How Long Have You Been Handling Mesothelioma Cases?

A law firm’s experience with mesothelioma cases will tell you a lot about their knowledge of the subject. If the attorneys are fairly new to asbestos exposure claims, they may lack the expertise to achieve a successful outcome. Lawyers with decades of experience with mesothelioma claims possess valuable insight and know how to navigate any issues that arise during your case.

The Gori Law Firm has practiced asbestos litigation for more than 20 years. We have helped countless clients recover compensation, including auto mechanics, pipefitters, railroad employees, people with secondary asbestos exposure, and professionals in other occupations exposed to asbestos.

We have also helped veterans file VA disability claims and pursue mesothelioma claims after being exposed to asbestos during their time in the following branches of service:

Is Asbestos Litigation Your Primary Focus?

Besides experience, you’ll want to know if asbestos litigation and mesothelioma cases are your attorney’s main practice. When lawyers have too many specialties or cover numerous practice areas, they may lack the focus and knowledge they claim.

As one of the nation’s top mesothelioma law firms, The Gori Law Firm focuses on asbestos litigation almost exclusively. We have committed mesothelioma attorneys ready to fight for you and your family.

Do You Have a Proven Track Record of Results in Asbestos Cases?

A qualified mesothelioma law firm will have a record of successful results for asbestos claims. Ask your lawyer to share outcomes for mesothelioma cases like yours and any of their firm’s notable settlements and verdicts.

With an impressive track record of successful asbestos litigation, The Gori Law Firm has secured over $4 billion in settlements and verdicts for mesothelioma clients nationwide.

How Often Do Cases Go to Trial? What Is the Success Rate?

Ask your attorney about their approach to settling cases out of court versus going to trial. While not every mesothelioma claim goes to court, you’ll want an attorney with trial experience who can argue your case before a judge and jury. How often their cases go to trial and their success rate can tell you plenty about their negotiation and litigation skills.

Who Will Be Involved in My Asbestos Case?

It’s important to stay informed and communicate openly with your attorney during the claims process. To ensure you stay updated, here are questions to ask your asbestos lawyer:

  • Who will be handling my case day-to-day?
  • How do I contact my attorney?
  • What happens if I have a question about my case?
  • How often will my attorney be in contact with me?

Gori Law Firm’s attorneys work together as a team to fight for our clients. We combine our experience, knowledge, and resources to provide personalized support, continuous communication, and the best client experience.

What Resources Do You Have To Help Determine My Asbestos Exposure History?

Mesothelioma cases require in-depth research and investigation to find potential asbestos exposure sources and determine what happened and who is at fault. If a law firm does not have the resources or connections to gather this information, you could be at a disadvantage.

At The Gori Law Firm, we have an extensive database on local and national asbestos exposure sites, including occupations and products that are known exposure sources. With decades of experience handling mesothelioma cases, we can quickly identify asbestos sources and build your case with solid evidence.

What Is the Filing Process Like at Each Stage, and How Involved Will I Have To Be?

Knowing what to expect throughout the litigation process is important. Some key questions to ask a prospective attorney include the following:

  • What is the process for filing a mesothelioma lawsuit?
  • What can I expect during the claims process?
  • How do you plan to investigate and build my case?
  • How much involvement is required from me and my loved ones?

Our supportive legal professionals handle all the heavy lifting for your case, giving you more time to spend with your family and focus on your health. While we keep you updated throughout the process, we aggressively pursue your claim on your behalf.
