Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer caused almost exclusively by exposure to asbestos. Choosing a lawyer to handle a mesothelioma case is important. An asbestos case involves typically two components. This first is the legal proceeding in a court of law with which most people are familiar. The second component involves the submission of claims to asbestos bankruptcy trusts against insolvent defendants. Many of the asbestos manufacturers have filed for bankruptcy over the last twenty years and have set up bankruptcy trusts. This process requires your lawyer to be familiar with the process of submitting claims to the appropriate asbestos manufacturers to ensure you receive just compensation. A case involving mesothelioma can be very difficult because a victim was usually exposed to asbestos during the 1950’s, 60’s, or 70’s and their memory of the products to which they were exposed is not recent. A lawyer experienced in handling mesothelioma cases can assist in this difficult process.
It is important to find a lawyer to handle your mesothelioma case who can come to your home and with who you can visit face to face and not just over the phone.
