An asbestos law firm or a mesothelioma law firm is one in which the partners and associates file claims on behalf of people afflicted with asbestos related illnesses, such as mesothelioma. Firms practicing this type of law develop a deep understanding of the details involved in bringing justice to the victims of this devastating disease and their families.
The laws governing torts (civil actions), under which asbestos litigation falls, can be complex. Different states have different statutes, and important elements, such as the burden of proof, may be more rigorous or demanding in some states than in others. It is therefore worthwhile to work with an asbestos lawyer because these attorneys have made it a priority to keep up with the latest research, legal opinions and case law involving mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. Several mesothelioma lawyers, like Sokolove Law and our affiliates, maintain massive databases of information related to virtually every aspect of the asbestos industry.
A mesothelioma attorney must master the many complexities associated with an asbestos exposure case. In many instances, it is important to identify not only where asbestos exposure took place and under what conditions, but also who the original manufacturer of the asbestos-containing product in question was, years after the exposure took place. Many of these manufacturers were acquired by and merged with other corporations; therefore a parent company under a different name may be held liable. As of 2000, Halliburton, for example, had paid out nearly $100 million to settle multiple asbestos suits against its subsidiaries.
