Asbestos law is constantly changing, both federally and locally. If a lawyer doesn’t specialize in asbestos litigation and constantly has their eyes and ears open to the changes, then they could act on outdated information and provide inadequate representation to an asbestos exposure victim. The best asbestos law firms are always updated on the new laws and procedures relating to asbestos cases. Because of this, asbestos and mesothelioma lawyers are a victim’s best chance for justice and greater compensation.
A knowledgeable and effective asbestos or mesothelioma law firm will be able to:
Build strong claims that identify how you were exposed to asbestos and by whom, and how this connects to your diagnosis.
Prove their track record of past successes where they helped clients in similar situations as yours.
Will have access to key information and databases (more than likely that were compiled by their team) that can be used to build your case, including information on products, manufacturers, local asbestos sites, testimonies from other victims, and more.
Will have extensive knowledge relating to asbestos trust funds that have been set up that you could possibly receive financial compensation through.
Explore all of your legal options, including which and how many manufacturers and companies can be sued, which have been shut down but have trust funds, and other routes to take to ensure you receive compensation.
Handle cases that require national and state asbestos legal knowledge.
Provide legal services on a contingency basis, meaning that they won’t get paid unless they secure financial compensation for your case.
