Finding the Best Mesothelioma Lawyer

One of the most important decisions you’ll make is choosing a lawyer to represent you. Mesothelioma and asbestos cases are complicated. Choosing a legal team that specializes in and has experience with asbestos cases will give the best chances of winning your claim.

Your lawyer should also be someone who makes you feel comfortable. Before moving forward, there should be no doubts in your mind that your legal team has your best interests in mind. Choose a lawyer who will fight for you, educate you about asbestos laws, and who will keep you posted as your case proceeds.

A good asbestos or mesothelioma lawyer should also help you decide what to do to get justice and compensation. Whether you should file a claim with an asbestos trust fund, start a lawsuit, go to trial with your case, or seek compensation through the Veterans Administration is a tough decision to make without good legal advice.

trust funds

Mesothelioma Trust Funds

Mesothelioma trust funds are financial trusts set up by companies that faced bankruptcy over asbestos lawsuits. Before being eligible for bankruptcy protection, these companies were required to set up the trusts to compensate victims of asbestos exposure now and in the future.

Mesothelioma Settlements

The majority of asbestos lawsuits settle out of court. In a settlement, the plaintiff’s representation negotiates a compensation amount with the defendant’s legal team. Although it’s difficult to determine how long a settlement will take, they are generally much quicker than going to trial.

Mesothelioma settlement amounts vary according to how long you’ve lived with an asbestos-related illness (or if the victim is deceased), the stage and severity of the illness, and the circumstances surrounding how asbestos exposure took place. No lawyer can guarantee you will win a certain amount, but an experienced attorney can make a good approximation.

Many mesothelioma cases have resulted in million-dollar settlements. Some settlements have reached tens of millions of dollars. It’s important to understand how mesothelioma settlements work so that you know what to expect.

If you served in the U.S. military and you believe your asbestos exposure occurred during service, you may be able to file for and receive compensation through the Veterans Administration (VA).

There are certain requirements you need to meet in order to qualify for veterans’ compensation. To sort through the complicated process, and to determine what you qualify for, let an experienced mesothelioma lawyer guide you.
