What Do Mesothelioma Personal Injury Lawyers Do?
To receive compensation for medical bills related to mesothelioma or other illnesses caused by asbestos exposure, you’ll need to file an asbestos cancer complaint and name the manufacturer—or, in some cases, your former employer—as a defendant.
Your team at The Ferraro Law Firm will investigate your mesothelioma claim, determine who can be named as a defendant, draft a complaint that states a cause of action for damages, and, in some cases, negotiate for a financial settlement. We serve as your representative throughout the process, ensuring that your legal rights are protected and that any settlement is in your best interest.
How to Find a Mesothelioma Lawyer for an Asbestos Cancer Lawsuit
When it comes to finding a mesothelioma lawyer, it’s important to note that, in most cases, you won’t need to pay a retainer or legal fees upfront—instead, your attorney’s fee will be subtracted from your financial recovery (generally as a percentage of the total amount recovered). This can be helpful for those who are facing strained finances as a result of mesothelioma.
Our team of experienced lawyers at The Ferraro Law Firm has decades of practice handling asbestos claims for mesothelioma victims. Since 1985, we’ve recovered billions of dollars in legal judgments and settlements for our clients, and we can help you too.
Tips for Finding the Best Asbestos Lawyers for Your Case
Below we set out a few tips that can help you find the best fit in asbestos legal counsel.
Consider Local vs. National
Many personal injury claims are restricted to a state or region because of how different personal injury laws are written. But asbestos is different, and asbestos litigation happens at the federal level. Depending on the type of lawsuit, an asbestos-related case may be litigated under a broad national standard. The Ferraro Law Firm represents clients nationally, giving us extensive experience in litigating asbestos claims and asbestos settlements in courts throughout the country.
Ensure Your Attorney or Law Firm Has Experience
Though every new attorney needs to get their start somewhere, the matters at stake in a mesothelioma lawsuit can be literally life or death. You want an experienced mesothelioma attorney who has handled hundreds or thousands of mesothelioma claims and understands all the legal options available so you can receive the maximum financial compensation for your case. At The Ferraro Law Firm, our experience — and our results — speak for themselves.
Discuss Communication Expectations
It’s important for you and your mesothelioma attorney to be on the same page when it comes to communication expectations and boundaries. There are many types of asbestos exposure lawsuits to consider. Asbestos workers who have a documented exposure history will have a different discussion than those suffering from asbestos diseases due to exposure to asbestos-based products.
At your first meeting with The Ferraro Law Firm, we will discuss what you’d like to achieve and how you’d like to be notified or consulted about issues that arise. We’ll also answer your mesothelioma questions. We’re committed to building a strong and trusting relationship with each of our clients.
Step Back and Let Your Lawyer Do Their Job
Battling mesothelioma is a full-time job in itself. The last thing you or your loved one wants to worry about during this time is how to handle your case. By hiring experienced mesothelioma counsel like The Ferraro Law Firm you’ll ensure that your case is in good hands—that your attorneys will act diligently to preserve your rights and fight for every penny of compensation you deserve.
