Search “mesothelioma” on Google and you might find hundreds of law firms clamoring to handle your case. It can be overwhelming to sort out, but it doesn’t have to be. When you are trying to find the right lawyer for you, make sure she or he has the following qualifications:
Trial lawyer — Negligent companies feel comfortable skirting the law and endangering workers because they think no one will stand up to them. Prove them wrong by hiring a dogged trial attorney who will go to the mattresses for you to ensure these businesses pay for their wrongs and help you and your family cover for the costs they caused. Most other personal injury lawsuits get settled out of court, but it is not unusual for mesothelioma cases to go to all the way to and through trial in order to maximize the client’s recovery. Make sure you start your claim with someone who is willing to go to court and the distance for you.
Experience — Many law firms begin investigating mesothelioma claims the same way they do for any other personal injury. But these lawsuits go much deeper than any slip and fall claim and require the skill and knowledge of someone who has not only handled such cases successfully, but also someone other lawyers turn to when they need help. The Farrise Law Firm has been able to pick up where other lawyers leave off and win compensation for clients whose previous attorneys may not have had the same level of experience with asbestos lawsuits.
Knowledge of mesothelioma cases — There are actually at least two parts to every mesothelioma claim: the personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit and trial, AND less formal claims where lawyers must work through asbestos bankruptcy trusts. These trusts are operated by organizations separate from the original company and require an additional claims to be made to those trusts in order to receive due compensation.
There are plenty of law firms out there that will say they handle asbestos-related illness claims, but their record of court success may not back up those statements.. Once you call those firms, they direct you to another law firm to actually work on your case but they collect a fee for the connection.. Why not work with a law firm that actually handles your asbestos illness case and works with you from the start and to the end?
