Why You Should Work with Our Asbestos Law Firm
Throughout the 20th century, asbestos was commonly used in thousands of products and building materials. As a result, workers from a wide range of industries have been unknowingly putat risk of developing mesothelioma, a rare and aggressive cancer caused by exposure to asbestos.
Sadly, many companies that made asbestos-containing products knew about the health risks but covered them up for their own profits.

“Hiring Sokolove Law was the smartest thing we ever did. Filing the lawsuit was easy because the firm made it easy. We didn’t have to do anything.” – John S., Firm Mesothelioma Client
10. Knowledge of Asbestos Trust Funds
If the company responsible for your illness has since declared bankruptcy, it’s possible they were ordered by the court to set money aside in asbestos trust funds to compensate future victims of asbestos-related diseases.
Estimated Amount in Asbestos Trust Funds
You may be eligible for compensation from multiple trust funds as well as from a lawsuit. By working with Sokolove Law, you can get help accessing compensation from all of these sources.
Gather evidence to build your case. Your team of asbestos experts will get your medical records, look into your background and work history to prove asbestos exposure, and determine which asbestos-containing products you were exposed to (and how many). This allows us to track down the companies that made the products responsible for your asbestos-related illness.
Take all possible routes to compensation. Depending on your case, you may have multiple options available to pursue financial compensation, including mesothelioma lawsuits, asbestos trust funds, and VA benefits.
File your mesothelioma lawsuit. Your asbestos lawyer will file any claims on your behalf before any legal deadlines and in the state that may offer you the most compensation for your case.
Settle your case or go to court. Most mesothelioma cases settle before going to court — but we’ll be prepared to present your case before a jury and handle any appeals if necessary.
While this may seem like a lot, remember: You shouldn’t have to work hard — your lawyer should. At Sokolove Law, we’re prepared to fight hard for everything you’re entitled to.
