Why you need a great mesothelioma lawyer
By Dave Butler
One of the most common misconceptions about asbestos litigation is that there is one giant pot of money set aside for victims of mesothelioma – the insidious cancer caused by asbestos – and all plaintiffs need to do is apply for their share.
If only things were that simple.
Many companies manufactured asbestos-containing products or put workers in direct contact with the deadly fibers. Some have gone bankrupt and put money in trusts for victims; others continue to operate.
Securing compensation for mesothelioma victims requires the same tenacity and methodical research that go into other areas of litigation. Because the disease takes decades to manifest, it is imperative to recreate the worker’s employment history and have intimate knowledge about what products they were exposed to decades ago. Often, responsible parties are only willing to entertain a settlement offer when the case is ready and set for trial.
