Why 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 put at 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.

By working with an experienced mesothelioma law firm like Sokolove Law, you can get help:

  • Holding the companies responsible for your illness accountable
  • Taking legal action within any deadlines or statutes of limitations
  • Ensuring your case receives the most compensation possible as quickly as possible

We have the resources and reach needed to take powerful companies like these on — and make them pay for their greed.

Filing a lawsuit can be confusing for those who haven’t gone to law school. We've been doing this for over 40 years, so you can expect us to make it as easy as possible for you.

The best mesothelioma law firms provide an experienced legal team who understands the specifics of your case and can work with you every step of the way.

When working with a top mesothelioma law firm, you can expect your legal team to:

  • Determine if you have a qualifying mesothelioma claim. To get started on this, get a free legal case review today.
  • 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.

What is the compensation for mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma case values will vary according to the unique details of your claim. That said, mesothelioma settlements award between $1 Million and $1.4 Million on average.

In total, our firm has recovered over $4.9 Billion for our mesothelioma clients. While we cannot predict the value of your case, we aim to maximize the compensation you may receive.

  • Costs associated with hiring home help or caretakers
  • Counseling or emotional therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Everyday living expenses
  • Financial security
  • Prescriptions and medicine
  • Funeral and burial costs

How much does the best law firm for mesothelioma charge?

At Sokolove Law, our mesothelioma lawyers work on what is called a “contingency basis,” which means that you don't have to pay anything out of pocket or worry about any hourly fees.

We are only paid if we succeed in securing money for you or your family.

How long do I have to contact a mesothelioma law firm after I've been diagnosed?

You only have a limited amount of time to take legal action. The mesothelioma statute of limitations (or the deadline for filing a lawsuit) varies from state to state.

Once the deadline passes, you won’t have the opportunity to press charges over your illness ever again.

This makes it very important to reach out to an asbestos law firm as soon as possible after you or your loved one receives a mesothelioma diagnosis.

Will I be able to speak with members of your asbestos law firm as needed?

We have a team of hardworking case managers available 24/7even during the holidays. When you work with our law firm, you become part of our family and we’ll be there for you.

Can I hire a law firm for a mesothelioma case if my loved one already passed away?

In many cases, yes. Family members, or court-appointed representatives of the mesothelioma victim’s estate, can file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of their loved one who passed away from mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease.

Has your loved one passed away from mesothelioma? Call (800) 647-3434 now for a free case evaluation to learn more about your legal options.

Can you help me figure out when and where I was exposed to asbestos?

Yes. Our asbestos attorneys have vast knowledge of asbestos-containing products, at-risk occupations, and known job sites.

We will look into your medical records, background, and work history to determine how and where you were exposed to asbestos.

Who will I be suing when I file a lawsuit for mesothelioma compensation?

When you file a lawsuit with a mesothelioma law firm, you'll be suing the manufacturer of the asbestos-containing products that caused your illness.

If you’re a veteran with mesothelioma and were exposed to asbestos during your service, know you will not be suing the U.S. government or military.

How long does it take to get a mesothelioma settlement?

While there’s never a guarantee of compensation in any case, many of our clients start to receive compensation in as few as 90 days.

Depending on the extent of your exposure, additional payments may continue to come in from asbestos claims for several years.

Does your law firm have a nurse or medical team on staff?

Yes. At Sokolove Law, an important part of your legal team is a registered nurse who can help provide access to medical care, support, and compassion while building your case.
