Respected, Client-Focused Mesothelioma Attorneys
RPWB lawyers have helped people diagnosed with mesothelioma for more than 40 years
If you or a loved one was recently diagnosed with mesothelioma, we know it is a difficult time for you and your family. While legal action against those who caused the mesothelioma might not be the first item on your to-do list, we recommend that you reach out to and speak with an experienced asbestos attorney without delay. You can reach us 24/7 by calling 1-866-594-8765 It is very important to begin the process of documenting work sites and the types of asbestos products you were exposed to. We’ve found it can also help put your mind at ease.
It’s important to understand the following:
- Mesothelioma was preventable, but the asbestos industry worked hard to keep the negative health effects of their products hidden. As a result, millions more American workers and their families were exposed to asbestos. Each year, between 2,000–3,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with mesothelioma, an insidious cancer that crops up decades after exposure to asbestos. These hardworking people suffer because of what asbestos companies did, and the vast majority unfortunately will pass away from the cancer within a few years. We are proud to fight for these folks and their families.
- Knowledge is power. There are support groups and there is a wealth of information about the medical aspects of mesothelioma, including new treatments. Courts have a long history of awarding victims substantial compensation in properly presented mesothelioma cases. We encourage you to seek out the best medical and legal care you can find. They are both important.
- We stand ready to help. For more than 40 years, the attorneys at RPWB have worked with mesothelioma victims, providing information and skilled counsel so they make smart choices and achieve full compensation. In fact, in 1976, our firm’s attorneys were among the first in the country to successfully hold asbestos manufacturers accountable for causing mesothelioma. Since then, we have obtained impressive verdicts and settlements in nearly every state in the U.S. and the U.S. Virgin Islands, including a $250 million verdict for a retired U.S. Steel employee who was diagnosed with mesothelioma. We are client-focused, accessible and forthcoming. You are more than a case to us.
Our experienced team of asbestos attorneys is available 24-7 to people diagnosed with mesothelioma and their families. We will answer your questions and begin the process of obtaining compensation from the asbestos companies. We serve the entire United States from our offices in South Carolina and Illinois. In many cases, our attorneys are available to meet at your home within just a day or two. Please give us a call at 1-866-594-8765 or send us a message through this website when you are ready to talk.
When we take your case, you are not just a number to us. You won’t be handed off to a junior lawyer. A partner in the firm who has worked on asbestos cases for decades will personally work on your case. You will get to know our very experienced asbestos lawyers and their professional and compassionate staff as we build the strongest possible mesothelioma case on your behalf.
