Claiming Your Rights; Choosing a Mesothelioma Attorney

Mesothelioma is a silent intruder that destroys the mesothelium – the protective covering so necessary for buffering and lubricating our precious organs. Victims of this horrendous disease may not be aware that they have contracted it for 20 to 50 years after exposure. By then, the disease may have progressed to later stages that are more difficult to treat.

Many manufacturers, distributors, and installers of asbestos related products used this mineral fiber in numerous products such as:

· vinyl floor tiles

· roofing tars

· gaskets

· caulk

· adhesives

· clutch plates

· stage curtains

· fire blankets

· interior fire doors

· thermal pipe insulation.

Although it was a panacea in the manufacturing industry for years, in the early 20th century, our government determined that the fibers were highly toxic. Unfortunately, the manufacturers and other related companies weighed this risk against their profit and determined that their gain was more important than your life.

Finding the Attorney that is Right for You

Literally hundreds of thousands of people have been impacted by this disease. According to the RAND Corporation, over 730,000 claimants have filed suit. Many law suits are still being filed as a result of mesothelioma. If you or a loved one suffer from this malignant disease, know your rights. Choose to file a claim with an attorney that can support and guide you through the process and get you the settlement you deserve. Some of the things to consider are:

· Is mesothelioma your attorney’s specialty?

· How much experience do they have?

· How many cases has your attorney represented?

· Of the cases represented, how many were won?

· What were the dollar amounts of each settlement?

· Will your attorney aggressively pursue your claim?

· Do they have the resources necessary to represent you?

In addition to the legal considerations, how well does your attorney know this disease? Yes, it is a medical question, but an attorney that specializes in mesothelioma should know this disease inside out. Not only will it help with your case, but the attorney that knows this disease has the added advantage of compassion and understanding.

· The right attorney will know what you and your loved ones are dealing with.

· The right attorney understands the nature and stages of this disease.

· The right attorney understands the impact on the entire family.

· The right attorney provides personal attention for each client.

· The right attorney knows and empathizes with your anger and frustration toward an industry that robbed you of your health.
