How to find a mesothelioma lawyer for an asbestos cancer lawsuit
Each year, according to the National Cancer Institute, between 2,000 and 3,000 Americans are diagnosed with mesothelioma—the most serious form of asbestos-related cancer. Another estimated 200,000 people are diagnosed with asbestosis every year. In total, between 12,000 and 15,000 Americans pass away each year as a result of an asbestos-related disease. Asbestos exposure impacts hundreds of thousands of families each year; and in many cases, those affected by asbestos were never even made aware that they were exposed.
Exposure to asbestos may result in high medical expenses, and surprise medical bills that your insurance company won’t cover. You want to work with a legal professional who isn’t going to expect you to come up with additional out-of-pocket costs to help file an asbestos claim or hold negligent companies responsible for asbestos disease in your loved one.
Some law firms handle asbestos-related claims on top of other categories of cases; others focus solely on asbestos litigation. Finding a top-rated mesothelioma lawyer to help you pursue an asbestos-related lawsuit can be tricky when there are so many choices. Below, we explain why choosing The Ferraro Law Firm to handle your mesothelioma lawsuit can help you achieve the best possible outcome for your claim.
Tips for finding the best asbestos lawyers for your case
Every asbestos case is different—and this is why experience is key. An experienced attorney whose firm represents plaintiffs throughout the country, in many different courts, will have a far better idea of what to expect from a particular claim than an attorney that doesn’t handle asbestos cases frequently or whose cases are litigated in just one or two courts. Specifically, with mesothelioma personal injury attorneys you’ll want to consider a firm’s record of success, professional achievements, and national experience. The Ferraro Law Firm represents clients across the U.S., and this broad experience helps make us great at what we do.
Schedule an initial consultation and “interview” your firm
It’s important to create a relationship of trust with your attorney—if you can’t maintain an open line of communication or be honest about what’s on your mind, it will make the process tougher for both you and your counsel. By setting up a Free Consultation with The Ferraro Law Firm, you’ll be able to ask questions and engage in an open dialogue.
Ask about their experience and prior outcomes
When you’re pursuing a mesothelioma claim, you want to know that the firm you’re hiring has an experienced lawyer with a history of obtaining good outcomes for their clients. Your firm should be comfortable talking about their track record of victories and explaining how they got there—along with lessons they’ve learned along the way. At The Ferraro Law Firm, our experience (and our results) speak for themselves, with billions of dollars recovered since 1985.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer, you may be eligible for compensation.
