Mesothelioma Lawyers and Lawsuits
The Mesothelioma .Org is designed to provide information for the victims of those who suffer from the mesothelioma strain of lung cancer. Also referred to as asbestos cancer, the victims include not only those who have been
diagnosed with the rare (roughly 2000 cases a year) disease but the families who may suffer through the healing process as well.
What is mesothelioma? What are the different types of mesothelioma? What about asbestos and am I at risk of contracting the asbestos disease? These questions and more are what we are
here to answer. Yes, this is a rare disease but when rock legend Warren Zevon passed away from Mesothelioma back in September of 2003 it helped
educate the mainstream media about its seriousness.
Keep in mind that this site is an educational resource only. If you have questions about mesothelioma treatment you should consult your doctor or licenced
physician. If you have legal questions mesothelioma lawyers have a knack for tracking asbestos cases given the favorable court rulings in the
past - please consult with a mesothelioma attorney.
While we do have areas outlining the medical options available
techniques and protocols are always being improved upon so do not rely on this information as being absolutely current. While we do have areas
detailing the legal rights of victims we are not legal counsel.
Because of the serious nature of the mesothelioma strain of lung cancer, and the circumstances it is contracted US courts have
been know to be sympathetic to sufferers and mesothelioma attorneys have had their clients awarded substantial payouts. Texas mesothelioma
lawyers, Houston mesothelioma attorneys and Port Author mesothelioma lawyers are known for being particularly successful. The data below
gives a sample of awards by courts in different areas, but does not include any out of court settlements made.
Even more general Asbestos cancer cases have been known to attract such payouts. If the lung cancer lawyer can prove exactly how much the
sufferer has lost, in the way of their loss of salary or loss of their own business, this is how such sums can be awarded.
Profit hungry building companies that did not take the necessary precautions against asbestos related cancer have had to be completely liquidated
to pay out.
Even big mesothelioma law firms take cases completely no win no fee if the relevant medical proofs are in place, and some lawfirms show an
interest when symptoms of mesothelioma are apparent.
Cancer specialist doctors usually are needed for a class action lawsuit even when there is an out of court settlement.
