It’s likely at some point in your life you’ve seen a mesothelioma commercial. Attorneys attempt to reach victims of asbestos exposure through visuals, large text and repeating messages. The goal is to deliver the message quickly and effectively for retention.
While occasionally mocked, law firms have a reason for such tactics. Once diagnosed, mesothelioma patients have a small window to file against a company for asbestos exposure before the statue of limitations end. Additionally, life expectancy for someone diagnosed with mesothelioma is under two years. In a 30 second spot, the attorneys need to convey the important details, including the limited time frame and how compensation is available, even if you smoked.
It’s these details that make it imperative to choose a law firm capable of handling a mesothelioma or asbestos-related case. Because the nature of these cases is complex and time consuming, it’s necessary to find a firm with the experience and history dealing with similar cases. They will have the information necessary to trace back to find the root of the asbestos exposure.
Many attorneys won’t have the sources of information needed to find the right company and determine how to proceed. In some cases, a lawsuit is necessary but other times it involves an asbestos trust fund.
Similar to how we go to an oncologist with a cancer diagnosis, you need asbestos lawyers on your side through this difficult time. They will be able to help you step-by-step and make sure you receive the compensation you deserve. Unlike some areas of laws, no fee is applied until the case receives compensation from the company sued or asbestos trust fund.
Make the right choice and contact asbestos attorneys prepared to help you.
