Legal Aspects to Consider When Choosing a Mesothelioma Lawyer

mesothelioma attorney | Gaylord & Nantais

Of course, recovering damages from those responsible for exposing you to the cancer-causing asbestos and other chemicals requires legal representation. Since mesothelioma cases are so complex, you need a lawyer with expertise and experience.

  • Experience. There is no substitute for experience when it comes to mesothelioma cases. Many law firms will want to represent you. Few law firms have a successful track record in these cases.
  • Success. Compensation in mesothelioma cases often comes from the company that manufactured the asbestos or from trust funds set up for victims. As you explore your lawyer options, make sure to ask about their success in securing compensation from companies and trusts. Lawyers with track records of success will be able to tell you all about the different avenues to compensation and how they have helped others.
  • Fees. There is, naturally, a cost associated with expert representation. Most lawyers who handle mesothelioma cases charge a contingency fee in addition costs for preparing your case. You can expect the fee to range from 33-40 percent. Do your homework.
  • Fit. At the end of the day, it’s important to work with a lawyer with whom you are comfortable. Do not underestimate fit. A good attorney will give every case the same attention and care.
