If you’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma, there’s a strong chance that it was caused by asbestos exposure – more than 90% of cases are. Asbestos exposure typically occurs either on the job or as a result of second hand exposure from a family member who was exposed on the job. In either case, an asbestos cancer attorney can help you recover compensation you’re rightly owed as a result of your illness and the impact on your life. But beyond the legal claim, there are other ways an experienced asbestos law firm can help a mesothelioma patient.
Experience with the Progressive Nature of Mesothelioma
Of course an asbestos lawyer isn’t a doctor, but the experienced staff at Bergman Draper Oslund has been helping mesothelioma clients for decades. Because of this, they have seen the ups and downs of this terrible illness and truly understand what patients are going through as the illness progresses. Equally as important, they know what the family of the patient is dealing with as they try and cope with the deteriorating disease their loved one is stricken with.
Experience with Medical Treatments for Mesothelioma
You may be satisfied with your medical team that’s treating your mesothelioma – or you may not. If you feel like you want another opinion or a change in physicians to one that is trying cutting edge or experimental treatments or that’s just taking a different look at traditional cancer therapy methods, we can help. Because we deal with mesothelioma patients every day, we know which physicians our other clients are using and satisfied with and are happy to make referrals for you.
Experience with the Toll Taken by Mesothelioma
Mesothelioma, like many debilitating cancers, gradually eats into quality of life and mobility. Because this cancer is often diagnosed in Stage III or IV, it can move rapidly from that point, even with treatment. It can be reassuring to know what’s coming as the illness evolves and we can offer a perspective on what to expect.
If your disease makes it difficult for you to meet with us, we will come to you where you are – in the hospital or at home convalescing – to discuss your case. Your comfort is critical to us.
Experience with the Stress of Mesothelioma
A diagnosis of mesothelioma can be devastating. Both the victim and family members will experience anxiety about prognosis, treatments and outcomes. With any major disease, there are financial concerns as well with out of pocket costs, co-pays and travel costs for treatments.
At Bergman Draper Oslund, we know how stressful the financial, physical and emotional impact of dealing with this serious illness can be. Stress, fear, anger and frustration are common, but we will be there with you along the way.
