It’s understandable that some people may find the legal process intimidating and overwhelming, particularly if they have never gone through it before. Additionally, when someone received a serious injury or illness due to another’s negligence, the last thing they may want to do is participate in a complex lawsuit when they just want to focus on getting better.
When it comes to mesothelioma, a rare yet deadly form of lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure, it’s worth it to explore your options with an experienced attorney. You may find that the matter will largely be taken out of your hands while you focus on your recovery.
Mesothelioma is largely preventable and occurs after exposure to the toxic silicate material asbestos. Although the use of asbestos in construction materials was strictly regulated in the 1970s, some areas may still contain the substance. It’s up to building managers and employers to identify and remove asbestos in order to keep tenants and workers safe.
When they fail in this duty, they may be held liable for any mesothelioma cases that result.
With an experienced attorney on your side, you may be able to recover the compensation you need for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. In fact, many settlements for mesothelioma claims run into the hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of dollars.
