Readers of our blog likely know that mesothelioma has only one cause: asbestos exposure. What some may not know is that it has been mined and used for thousands of years. Within the last 100 years or so, it was industrialized and used in just about everything as a fire retardant. However, as medical science progressed, we slowly learned about how it caused cancer in the lining of the lungs, called mesothelioma. And, those who have that cancer may wonder why they should file a mesothelioma lawsuit.
At our firm, Bergman Draper Oslund Udo, we have the experience and knowledge needed for these types of scientific cases. We have extensive inventories of modern companies and government agencies where asbestos exposure was routine. We can then match these companies with our clients to determine where exposure likely occurred.
Not re-inventing the wheel
Bergman Draper Oslund Udo concentrates our practice on these types of cases. We have developed well-documented and thorough claims filing process. These are known lawsuits, and we do not have to re-invent the legal wheel to get our clients a recovery.
Diagnosis and treatment
By the time our clients contact us, they usually already have a diagnosis. And, they have already discussed treatment options, which can be traditional, like chemotherapy, surgery and radiation therapy. It could also be alternative therapies or experimental treatments. However one chooses to treat their cancer though, one thing is clear, it is not cheap, and especially for experimental and alternative treatments, insurance likely does not cover all or any of those costs. This is why one of the biggest reasons to file a mesothelioma lawsuit is to get medical care coverage.
Of course, there is no amount of money that will take away the cancer. There is no amount of money that will erase these memories and the pain of treatment. But, it can help get one back to some semblance of healthy by offering new treatment options. We have clients throughout the Pacific Northwest, including Washington and Oregon. Though, we represent mesothelioma victims throughout the U.S. The key to getting compensation fast is to start the process sooner, rather than later.
