5 Reasons Why You Need a Mesothelioma Attorney

Many people do not realize the settlements they can potentially receive after being diagnosed with mesothelioma if it is related to negligence on employers’ or others’ part. A mesothelioma attorney can help you build your case. Here are five reasons why you should consider seeking legal help.

1. Determining the Right Legal Action for Your Case Requires Ample Experience

Mesothelioma cases are not clear-cut legal actions. The type of claim or legal action you pursue depends upon the extent of your illness, and how the exposure happened. For example, your attorneys may recommend choosing any of the following options:

  • A personal injury claim for surviving victims
  • A wrongful death claim for deceased victims
  • Veteran benefits for U.S. veterans exposed while serving
  • An asbestos trust fund claim for qualifying products and companies
  • Disability applications for surviving victims who cannot work
  • Worker’s compensation benefits, depending on where you live

An experienced attorney can examine your case and recommend which options you should pursue. Sometimes, you might qualify for additional legal actions, which an attorney can also help you through so that you do not miss out on any financial avenues.

2. Attorneys Know How To Gather Evidence and Prove Fault

Receiving compensation for any mesothelioma claim requires a certain amount of evidence to prove fault. Our attorneys understand what evidence you need and how to gather this information legally.

Aside from finding evidence to support the property owner’s liability, you also need documentation that outlines all the different medical bills and associated costs for which you wish to receive compensation. You may find it challenging to keep track of this paperwork without legal support.

3. Mesothelioma Lawyers Know the Common Products and Companies That Are Most Likely Liable

Often, asbestos exposures tie back to known employers and sometimes common products from decades ago. While you may not know who the responsible party is, an experienced mesothelioma attorney deals with these cases daily. With this experience, your attorney can recommend an optimal route for your case, depending on who the liable party is.

4. An Attorney Can Ensure That No One Takes Advantage of Your Legal Rights

When dealing with legal complications, insurance companies, and other large organizations, you may struggle to protect your rights if you do not have enough legal knowledge on the subject. An attorney can ensure that no one attempts to take advantage of your rights with insufficient offers.

5. Attorneys’ Average Verdicts Speak for Themselves

At Halpern Law Firm, we have a history of getting multi-million dollar verdicts as high as $14.5 million. While you may receive some compensation when working independently, opting for legal help improves your chances of achieving full and fair compensation.
