How to Pick an Asbestos Lawyer

court of law

Selecting an attorney is an important decision. Many Texans suffering from mesothelioma have never needed a lawyer until being diagnosed with this life-threatening cancer. Below are some questions to ask any lawyer you’re considering for representing you in your mesothelioma claim:

It is common for law firms to advertise for mesothelioma cases even though they have little to no asbestos litigation experience. Because mesothelioma is rare, litigation requires special knowledge of medical and scientific issues. It’s also critical they have an understanding of what asbestos companies knew or should have known about the hazards of asbestos, the products and trades involved and many other issues that are unique to asbestos cases. You need a lawyer that has extensive, and successful asbestos litigation experience to handle your case.

You’ll want to hire a lawyer that has represented numerous mesothelioma victims. A lawyer experienced in representing mesothelioma victims will be familiar with the legal, medical and exposure issues likely to be involved in your case as well as the potential responsible asbestos companies.

Many asbestos law firms have hundreds or thousands of case files where more than one lawyer may be assigned to different aspects of your case — a method which can result in an unfocused and bureaucratic approach. Look for a firm with one primary lawyer to work on many aspects of your case. A personal one-on-one approach to your case is likely to lead to a more thorough knowledge of your case, a focused strategy, and a better result.
