What Do Asbestos & Mesothelioma Attorneys Do?

Companies that made products with asbestos knew it was dangerous — but used it anyway. 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:

  • Obtains crucial evidence: Your mesothelioma attorney and legal team collect the evidence necessary to build your case and prove your exposure to asbestos.
  • Files your claim: Your attorney will draft and file an asbestos claim against the manufacturer(s) of the asbestos-containing 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.
  • Tries the case: If both parties can’t agree on a settlement, your asbestos lawyer will fight on your behalf in trial before a jury, who ultimately decides the case's outcome.

If you or a loved one was diagnosed with mesothelioma, let mesothelioma attorneys with Sokolove Law handle the legal legwork for you. Get started now for free.

“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.”

Mesothelioma Lawyers Aim to Maximize Your Compensation

Maximizing the amount of mesothelioma compensation a family receives is always the goal of Sokolove Law.

We know how blindsided many families are by the unexpected costs of cancer treatment, so we fight for the most compensation as quickly as possible.

As of April 2024, we’ve recovered over $4.9 Billion for mesothelioma clients nationwide, including:

  • $40 Million for a U.S. Navy veteran
  • $11.49 Million for a demolition worker in Florida
  • $11.12 Million for a mesothelioma patient in Arizona
  • $10.23 Million for a boiler tender in the U.S. Navy
  • $9.62 Million for a construction worker in California

The value of asbestos cases can vary depending on multiple factors. While there’s never a guarantee of compensation in any case, our mesothelioma lawyers will fight hard to get you everything you’re entitled to.

Video Summary: Walter, a Sokolove Law client and U.S. Navy veteran, talks about why he filed a mesothelioma lawsuit.

He said, “You have all your paperwork in order?” I said, “Yes I do.” He said, “Well, keep it there” Nobody ever said anything, about it being dangerous. The powers at be knew. I said, “Well, heck with this noise. They’re gonna hear from me.” I wasn’t suing the government, I wasn’t suing the U.S. Navy, I was suing the manufacturer. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Mesothelioma, you may be entitled to compensation.

When should I contact a mesothelioma lawyer and attorney?

As soon as possible. Due to statutes of limitations, families have only a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit.

Mesothelioma statutes of limitations vary by state — some are as short as one year from the date of your diagnosis or the death of your loved one.

Once this deadline passes, you won't be able to take legal action over your injuries ever again.

Call (800) 647-3434 now to get started. Don’t miss out on money you deserve.

How can I find the best mesothelioma lawyer near me?

Look no further than Sokolove Law if you’re trying to find an experienced mesothelioma cancer lawyer near you.

As one of the first truly national mesothelioma law firms, we have offices with licensed asbestos attorneys in nearly every state, allowing us to provide nationwide representation in your backyard.

If you have a case, we’ll travel to you, whenever and wherever it’s convenient for you. Get in touch with our team today for a free legal consultation.

Will I need to travel to meet with my asbestos attorneys?

No. If you have a case, our asbestos attorneys will travel to you — whenever and wherever it's convenient to you. We also have virtual appointments available if preferred.

Our team can be there fast, sometimes within 24 hours, to answer any questions and walk you through the mesothelioma legal process.

Can I still meet with my mesothelioma attorneys during the pandemic?

Yes. Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, Sokolove Law continues to provide free legal case consultations — both in person and virtually.

For years, many of our clients have received financial compensation without ever having to leave their homes. That's never been more true than it is now.

How much money can a mesothelioma attorney recover?

It depends. The average mesothelioma settlement amount, which is a negotiated amount of compensation to settle the case before it goes to trial, falls between approximately $1 Million and $1.4 Million.

The average mesothelioma verdict, which is decided by a judge and jury during a court trial, awards between $5 Million and $11.4 Million.

It’s difficult to determine the value of an asbestos case without knowing specific details, and these ranges can only serve as ballpark figures.

How long will it take to get mesothelioma financial compensation?

Within 90 days of first contacting us, many of our mesothelioma clients start receiving financial compensation

That said, every case is different and influenced by a variety of factors, so there’s no easy way to predict how long your case may take.

Can I file a mesothelioma claim if my family member has passed away?

Oftentimes, yes. Even if your loved one has already passed away, you may still be able to file an asbestos claim after death on their behalf.

Because mesothelioma is an especially deadly cancer that has no cure, wrongful death mesothelioma lawsuits are sadly very common in these cases.

We can work with you to determine if you may be able to file a claim on behalf of your sibling, spouse, parent, or family member.

How do I prove asbestos caused my mesothelioma diagnosis?

Asbestos exposure is the only known cause of mesothelioma. If you’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you were exposed at some point to asbestos.

Exposure usually happens through your workplace or secondhand exposure from a loved one who worked with asbestos.

Your team at Sokolove Law has access to databases full of asbestos exposure evidence, including lists of asbestos-containing products and known exposure sites.

We can utilize our decades of experience and database of evidence to determine your asbestos exposure history and build a strong case on your behalf.

Can mesothelioma lawyers help veterans if they don't want to sue the military?

Absolutely. When you work with Sokolove Law, we won’t file any mesothelioma lawsuits against the military or government.

Instead, we file directly against the manufacturers that made or supplied the military with the deadly asbestos-containing products you were exposed to — not the U.S. government or military.

Filing an asbestos legal claim also won’t impact your VA benefits or pensions, and in some cases, you won’t even have to go to court to start receiving compensation.

Call (800) 647-3434 now for a free legal case review. We’ve helped thousands of U.S. military veterans with mesothelioma get the results they deserve.
