Why Do I Need a Mesothelioma Attorney?
Mesothelioma cases come with complications unique to the disease. Because symptoms don’t appear for decades, tracking down the companies responsible for your pain can be difficult. If a company no longer exists or operates under a different name, filing a lawsuit isn’t impossible—but it isn’t easy for someone who doesn’t have experience developing these cases for trial. Mesothelioma attorneys understand how these cases work and how to pursue the right parties for compensation.
What If I Can’t Afford to Hire an Attorney?
Attorneys who represent mesothelioma cases operate with a “contingency fee” arrangement. Simply put, clients pay nothing upfront for the preparation of their case, the investigative resources, or the court fees—the law firm pays for everything. If your case wins, the law firm receives a percentage of the verdict or settlement. If you case does not win, you owe the firm nothing. This ensures that you have nothing to lose and that anyone has the ability to hold their wrongdoers in court.
When Do I Need to File a Mesothelioma Lawsuit?
States will vary, but the common statute of limitations is 2 to 3 years. That means from the date you are diagnosed with mesothelioma (or the date you learn a loved one’s death was caused by mesothelioma), you have a 2-3 years to file a lawsuit against those responsible. In legal terms, that is not a lot of time—especially considering that law firms have to determine who is at fault and whether they can be sued. In other words, you need to act as quickly as possible to get your case started.
Is There Anything Specific I Should Look for in a Law Firm?
Experience and a record of success. You have one opportunity to get justice from your employers or from the manufacturers that caused your disease. The best way to maximize that opportunity is to enlist the help of an experienced firm who has won cases before. Wherever you are in the nation, Shrader & Associates is prepared to hear your story and let you know if you have a case. Let us investigate on your behalf—you pay nothing, and you may be able to get answers about why this happened to you.
