Despite knowledge of the dangers of asbestos, the substance was used in construction, manufacturing, shipbuilding, the military, and home-building materials, as well as in many household products. Companies that used or manufactured asbestos-treated products were aware of the risks and knowingly exposed many people to the harmful effects. These companies are being held accountable for the suffering they have caused.
Lawsuit & Claims (attorney, filing, claims, financial assistance)
Mesothelioma is a devastating disease, causing you loss of your health, loss of income, medical bills, and pain for both you and your loved ones. This cancer is preventable, but the companies that exposed you to the known risk of asbestos are being held responsible. By filing a claim you can receive monetary compensation to help you through this difficult time. Mesothelioma attorneys can help you with claims and lawsuits to identify the companies at fault and get you the money you deserve.
The Legal Process (case, filing, trial, legislation)
At Danziger & DeLlano we understand the pain and difficulty of mesothelioma, and we are committed to helping you. Our firm works on a contingency fee basis, meaning we only get paid if you win your lawsuit or obtain a settlement (so there is no cost to you!) Below is a brief overview of the legal process for mesothelioma lawsuits:
- Background — the more we know about your asbestos exposure, the more smoothly your claim will proceed. Before the claim is filed, we will evaluate your work and employer history to determine if you can file a valid claim
- Filing — we will work with you to file a complaint in the proper state and court. This will specify your claim, stating how the defendant companies put you at risk for mesothelioma and laying out the dollar amount for your case.
- Discovery — before a trial or a settlement, evidence will be gathered through depositions, written answers to questions, reviewing medical records and work history documents relevant to your case. This step involves the attorneys on both sides of the claim, and we will be with you every step of the way.
- Trial or Settlement — most mesothelioma litigation is resolved with a settlement, though some cases go through the entire process of a trial. Settlement negotiations and trials may take time, but our firm is experienced in obtaining substantial monetary compensation for mesothelioma victims.
