When to Contact a Mesothelioma Lawyer
If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, or if your loved one died from the asbestos-related cancer, you should contact a mesothelioma lawyer or law firm as soon as possible to find out if you have a claim. When you contact a lawyer, be prepared to answer questions about your circumstances such as:
- When were you diagnosed?
- Who is your doctor?
- When were you exposed to asbestos?
- Are you a veteran?
- If yes, did you serve in the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force or Coast Guard?
- When did you serve?
- Do you remember working with asbestos?
- If no, what was your occupation?
- Did you work in any of the following industries: steel, electrical, plumbing, mining, shipbuilding, construction, insulation, auto?
- If yes, do you recall working directly with asbestos?
- If no, what industry did you work in?
- Were you given protective gear while working with asbestos?
- Were you ever warned about the risk of mesothelioma?
- What symptoms have you experienced?
- Have you received treatment?
- If yes, what kind?
If you're calling a lawyer on behalf of a loved one who died or is dying from mesothelioma, be prepared to answer similar questions about his or her work and medical history. In order to file a mesothelioma lawsuit we must be able to trace the asbestos exposure to a company, manufacturing plant, product maker, military ship or base, or government agency. If you are unsure of when or where you were exposed to asbestos, don't worry. Our mesothelioma attorneys are highly experienced investigators and can help figure out who is liable for your suffering.
Trust Funds vs. Lawsuits
Billions of dollars have been set aside in bankruptcy trusts by many major corporations to help compensate individuals who accuse them of asbestos exposure. Filing a claim with a trust fund is a very different process than filing a lawsuit; it is usually a much shorter process and the payout will likely be different. Your attorney will explain all your legal options and will help you make the right decision based on the specific facts of your case.
