If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, obtaining legal advice is one of the most important things you can do. The costs related to treating asbestos related diseases are extraordinary and often exceed even the most comprehensive insurance plan limits.
Anyone who has been diagnosed has the right to compensation by the companies who blatantly buried the facts about the link between asbestos and cancer and led directly, through their actions, to you or your loved one contracting the illness.
Unfortunately, the legal landscape is very complicated and it just isn’t something that most families are prepared to deal with on their own. That’s why contacting a law firm that specializes in asbestos related diseases is one of the best things you can do.
Having a legal team like Bergman Draper Oslund to handle the complex legal process allows you to focus all of your energy on your health. Even if you don’t choose us to represent you, we cannot stress the importance of having specialized legal representation.
The asbestos companies have an army of highly skilled lawyers on their payroll to help them fight mesothelioma cases. Trying to represent yourself or using an attorney who doesn’t have a comprehensive knowledge of the issue could severely hamper your chances of winning the case or obtaining a fair settlement.
Letting You Focus on What’s Important
When you do choose an attorney, don’t focus on doing it to punish someone. While you may want to sue someone for the pain and suffering that their actions have caused you, this isn’t the reason you should be seeking legal action. The first thing you should be focused on is fighting the disease and increasing your quality of life.
This is why recovering the costs of your medical treatments is priority one. There will be an opportunity to negotiate for other settlement money. Mesothelioma treatments can decimate family savings and retirement funds and leave your family with no financial stability. Our job is to prevent this from happening.
Protecting Your Legal Rights
Because we only do mesothelioma litigation, Bergman Draper Oslund can effectively represent you in ways that a traditional personal injury attorney cannot. We will handle all of the paperwork and advise you on the amount that your case is worth based on years of experience.
Our staff has a library of information on all major asbestos manufacturers, previous lawsuits and judgments against them, and the latest information on cases throughout the country. This helps us obtain witness statements, documentation and other case building information quickly so your case can be filed. The sooner your case is filed, the sooner you could see compensation.
We are experts and can cite case studies and documents that show the causal link between your asbestos exposure and your mesothelioma diagnosis. Our track record allows us to be forceful negotiators when it comes to obtaining a settlement with the at fault company.
If a settlement is not reached before your court date, we will represent you in court and any other forums that are necessary. And, we will always focus on helping you recover a settlement or verdict award so you can afford to finance your health care and your family’s future.
