Choosing A Mesothelioma Attorney
Mesothelioma is a rare, aggressive form of cancer that attacks the protective tissues which surround the lungs, abdominal organs and heart. The only known cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos, typically decades before you have any symptoms. If you or a family member has been diagnosed with this disease, you need to consult with a highly-qualified attorney having considerable experience with the specific needs of mesothelioma victims. You and your family member are going through an extremely difficult time–physically, emotionally and financially—because of this disease. Next to the highly qualified medical team that will care for you as you go through the process, you need a strong, compassion and understanding attorney to advise you about your rights to receive compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, and medical expenses.

What Should I Be Looking For?
The best mesothelioma attorneys have dedicated years to representing clients having mesothelioma and other asbestos related diseases. They have expertise in all matters concerning asbestos, including the physical properties of the various forms of asbestos, the companies who produced and sold asbestos products and their current status, complex medical-legal issues, sophisticated litigation and procedural issues, and familiarity with the opposing attorneys who will likely represent the defendants. Having a solid grasp of both federal and state asbestos laws, an experienced mesothelioma attorney will advise you about the procedural and substantive intricacies of your claim and provide you with a realistic estimate of how the compensation you might recover.
Where Do I Go To Find The Right Mesothelioma Attorney?
You can contact the State Bar Association that licenses lawyers in your state. It should have a referral service that can provide the names of experienced asbestos attorneys. Also, the physician who is providing treatment for your mesothelioma should be familiar with the names of attorneys who have successfully represented mesothelioma patients. There are likely mesothelioma support groups in your area who are familiar with qualified asbestos lawyers. Even an attorney whom you might have used for other services might be able to direct you to a reputable qualified attorney.
How Do I Know That A Specific Attorney Is Right?
Always check an attorney’s credentials on the internet, through a professional organization like Martindale & Hubble or through personal references. Great mesothelioma attorneys are recognized by their peers and national organizations for their excellence in fighting for their clients’ legal rights. The lawyer you ultimately select should not only have a history of favorable results but also one you can trust implicitly.
Can I Afford A Great Attorney?
With mesothelioma and other asbestos-related personal injury and wrongful death claims, attorneys generally work on a contingency basis. You should not have to pay anything up front and are only responsible for legal fees if your lawyer actually helps you receive compensation.
