Mesothelioma Legal Help

For individuals stricken with asbestos related mesothelioma, there may be substantial compensation available if they act quickly to engage an experienced mesothelioma lawyer who is proficient in asbestos legal issues and proving asbestos exposure. Most often mesothelioma lawsuits end up with a settlement without ever going to trial or even into a court. In our experience, this is the preferred scenario for most families with a mesothelioma case.

Since the only known cause of mesothelioma in the United States is asbestos, the key to a successful case is proving exposure to the product(s) responsible for the injury. That is why you need to hire an experienced asbestos related disease attorney.

This is not to say that the asbestos industry will simply give away any money. The large corporations that we routinely go up against will hire some of the best attorneys that money can buy to defend and delay against paying compensation to you. This is why retaining an experienced mesothelioma lawyer with a background in this type of case can help you and your family get the asbestos settlement or verdict you deserve.

Coady law firm attorneys have represented many hundreds of clients stricken from asbestos related mesothelioma with compassion, diligence and success. They began their works in mesothelioma case 25 years ago, and they are still hard at it today.

Why you are entitled to compensation:

For centuries there has been increasing evidence that asbestos caused respiratory diseases in humans. By the 1930s, the asbestos industry was selling millions of dollars worth of asbestos insulation. Asbestos, a mineral that was plentiful and inexpensive to use, was an effective insulating material. It was used in all sorts of insulations-pipecovering, cement, gaskets, blankets, building materials, automotive products and other various uses.

Around this time, the asbestos trade associations and industry giants began to fund scientific studies to prove that asbestos was safe, but their scientists came to the opposite conclusion. They found asbestos was a highly toxic carcinogen which caused respiratory illnesses, including cancer, in laboratory animals and, it was believed, in humans.

Faced with this evidence, the asbestos industry did not warn users of the health risks, or take steps to prevent harm. Instead, they covered up this evidence and continued with business as usual. Scientific reports were edited and modified, test results were altered or destroyed, and funding for this research was stopped. The asbestos industry then embarked on a campaign to keep the information from reaching the general public. Manufacturers of safer, non-asbestos insulations were bought out by the asbestos industry giants, stifling competition and safeguarding the cover-up.

Through the tireless efforts of some of those pioneering scientists, the United States government finally realized the hazards of asbestos, and began a slow campaign to curtail, and ultimately, prohibit, its use in the United States.

When to contact a Mesothelioma Attorney:

It is important that you contact us as soon as possible upon learning that you or a loved one has been diagnosed with an asbestos-related cancer for three reasons. First, all states have a statute of limitations in which you must file your case, which often starts running at the time of diagnosis. Your case needs to be filed before that time has expired otherwise compensation may be barred. Second, a case in which the plaintiff is alive is often set for trial more quickly because those cases get priority in most jurisdictions. Third, the person with the disease is usually the best person to establish their exposure history, which is often essential information for a successful settlement.
