Asbestos Cancer Law- Mesothelioma Victims Advice
If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, depending on whether you were exposed on the job, at home or elsewhere will determine who the claim is focused on. In Washington, employers cannot be sued by an employee, but it’s more likely that a product manufacturer or distributor is responsible for your illness and liable for what has happened to you. There are several reasons to consider a mesothelioma lawsuit, starting with holding those who are responsible for your disease accountable for their actions.
Make Asbestos Companies Take Responsibility
The danger associated with asbestos has been well-known since before the 1940s. Unfortunately, asbestos producing companies did nothing to publicize the risk or protect people who worked in industries that used the materials. They knew that asbestos caused long-term health effects. They chose to put profits ahead of safety. Every lawsuit brought spreads awareness of the plight of all of those who were victimized by the asbestos industry in the name of the dollar.
Continue Funding Your Mesothelioma Treatment
Mesothelioma and other asbestos related diseases are costly to treat – even for those that have the best health insurance available. For those with less than stellar (or no) coverage, those costs may become overwhelming in no time at all. In addition, to get the best care, you may need to travel to see a specialist if there is not one near you. Travel expenses are just another cost that can add up. Filing a mesothelioma lawsuit can help you afford the care you need for all of the associated costs of medical treatment.
Ensure the Well-Being of Your Family
It’s understandable that a lawsuit may feel intimidating. Mesothelioma, however, may prevent you from being able to take care of your family in the way you expected to. In addition to the costs associated with asbestos related cancer treatment, the physical effects of the disease make it all but impossible to continue working. A well planned legal initiative will allow you to leave your family with the security that you can no longer provide while you are focusing on your health.
No Upfront Costs
Filing a mesothelioma lawsuit won’t cost you anything out of pocket. Cases are accepted on a contingency basis which means the law firm will pay for all the legal costs tied to pursuing your claim. The law firm will only collect their fee if they win you a settlement either at trial or out of court. You focus on your treatments and the lawyer handles the case.
Wrongful Death from Mesothelioma Disease
If you have lost a loved one to mesothelioma, no amount of compensation can make up for that loss, but it may provide financial stability to your family after a terrible loss. What’s also important is to hold those responsible accountable for the pain and suffering of your loved one and the loss your family has endured.
