Mesothelioma Cases Rejected – Why it Happens
Mesothelioma, a rare type of cancer, is almost always caused by exposure to asbestos. Proving that a person or a company is negligent in causing the exposure is not always easy and proving that another party failed to warn you about asbestos is not always straightforward.
Since it can be difficult to make the connection between a company’s negligence and a mesothelioma diagnosis, some lawyers will turn down cases. They don’t want to put in the work or the money it takes to fight for justice for the victim.
Money is generally the main issue when a mesothelioma case is rejected by a lawyer or law firm.
If the lawyer does not believe that the case will result in a big enough settlement or jury award to the plaintiff, it could be rejected.
It can cost a lot of money to do research, to hire expert witnesses, and to do the other work necessary to prepare and follow through with a case.
Even if the case is strong and easy to prove, if a lawyer doesn’t believe the payout, in the end, will be enough, they will turn clients away.
Why All Mesothelioma Cases Should Be Accepted
As long as you or someone you care about has received a legitimate diagnosis of mesothelioma, you should be able to seek justice with appropriate representation.
No one should have ever been exposed to asbestos, and that means there is always a case to make against someone, most likely a company, when a person is diagnosed with mesothelioma.
Some cases will be more difficult, time-consuming, and expensive than others. Some will result in smaller payouts. These issues are not good enough reasons to prevent victims from seeking justice.
Everyone who has been harmed by asbestos, who has to live with a deadly mesothelioma diagnosis, should have lawyers on their side to help them in the legal battle for compensation and to expose those who caused them harm.
