How The Halpern Law Firm Helps Mesothelioma Victims

Your diagnosis may have come as a complete shock to you, or if you knew you were exposed to asbestos you may have spent years worrying, realizing that mesothelioma was a possibility. Whichever your circumstance, you are now faced with overwhelming questions and concerns. The Halpern Law Firm is here to help.

Dave Halpern has committed the last thirty years of his life to working on behalf of victims of asbestos exposure. He is personally involved with each client’s case to ensure that victims receive the attention and high-quality legal representation they deserve.

The firm takes a “no stone unturned” approach to investigation as well as to litigation, so that every source of exposure is identified, and every asbestos company is held responsible for the damage that they have caused.  The result is an impressive record on behalf of the firm’s Pennsylvania and New Jersey clients, with millions of dollars recovered through both settlements and successful lawsuits.

The Halpern Law Firm provides national litigation experience while ensuring that every client receives the personal attention they deserve and is treated with compassion and dignity.

Over $100 Million Won for Clients

Whether you’ve been diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease, your main concern is holding those responsible accountable and taking care of the economic future for yourself and your family. One of the most effective methods of securing that future is to seek compensation for the damages that you’ve suffered, including the costs of medical treatment, lost wages, home care, and pain and suffering. Dave Halpern is dedicated to using all the tools available to him to maximize the compensation that mesothelioma victims and their families receive.

What are those tools?

Once we meet with a victim of asbestos exposure, we immediately begin investigating where, when, and how the exposure took place so that we can connect the illness to specific environments and companies. Once those responsible are identified we can move forward to file a lawsuit or to file a claim with an asbestos bankruptcy trust where applicable. In many instances, a jury trial can be avoided, and the matter resolved in a settlement agreement. No matter what path is taken, the goal is always to maximize the compensation for our clients, granting them the economic reward and peace of mind that they need and deserve.

Over 30 years of practice, Dave Halpern has successfully achieved significant verdicts and settlements totaling over $100 million for his clients. Some of these include:

  • $1.5 million for an 85-year-old steel mill worker who’d worked in the open-hearth area of a steel mill around asbestos-insulated ingot molds and a steel mill’s auto garage working with asbestos-contaminated gaskets and brakes.
  • $1.5 million for a 71-year-old Navy veteran who stood fire watch below deck in ship’s fire and engine rooms while machinery repair work on asbestos-contaminated boilers, pumps, valves, and steam traps was completed. He later suffered exposure while working in telephone equipment repair.
