What Does a Top Mesothelioma Lawyer and Attorney Do?

Companies that made products with asbestos knew it was dangerous — but used it anyway. Top mesothelioma lawyers can help asbestos exposure victims hold these companies accountable and pursue compensation for their injuries.

While each case varies, your mesothelioma lawyer usually:

  • Determines how you were exposed to asbestos: Your mesothelioma attorney will identify all of the asbestos-containing products you may have been exposed to at home or at previous jobs.
  • Obtains crucial evidence: We’ll work to prove the companies responsible for your exposure knew asbestos was dangerous when they used it in their products.
  • Files your claim: Your attorney will draft and file an asbestos claim or mesothelioma lawsuit against the companies that made, sold, and distributed the products you were exposed to.
  • Negotiates a settlement: More than 99% of the time, our mesothelioma attorneys can settle a case instead of taking it to court, helping clients get compensation faster.
  • Tries the case: If both parties can’t agree on a settlement, your asbestos lawyer will fight on your behalf in a trial before a jury, who ultimately decides the case's outcome.

Mesothelioma lawyers secure between $1 Million and $11.4 Million on average, depending on if your case settles or goes to trial.

If you or a loved one was diagnosed with mesothelioma, let our mesothelioma attorneys handle every step of the legal process for you. Get started now for free.
