What is Mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma is a form of cancer which develops in the protective lining that covers many of the body’s internal organs, known as the mesothelium. It is most often caused by exposure to asbestos. Unfortunately, since it is an unusual condition, the diagnosis is very tricky and many people are not correctly diagnosed. Often when the condition presents itself, there is a delay in diagnosing it and treating it which results in a worsening of the disease.
Many cases of this illness are attributed to negligence on behalf of companies that manufacture products containing asbestos and were aware of the health risks of asbestos exposure. In those situations, they did not reveal the information to the general public or kept the information from their employees. Some of these companies have been aware of the side effects since as early as the 1920s. If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or an asbestos-related condition, it is important that you get in touch with an Austin mesothelioma lawyer right away.
Personal Injury Claims for Mesothelioma Cases
Thousands of people become ill or suffer a wrongful death every year due to the negligence of asbestos manufacturers that led to the development of an asbestos-related disease. If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with this type of illness related to asbestos such as mesothelioma, you likely have a valid claim for financial compensation. Legally, you do not require an attorney to file a personal injury claim. However, having a firm represent you who is knowledgeable in the field will give you the best possible chances for a successful claim. In cases such as these, having an Austin mesothelioma lawyer has helped many of individuals receive financial assistance to cover their medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering.
How to File A Lawsuit
Speak with a personal injury attorney
Before pursuing a case, it is best to speak with a mesothelioma lawyer to discuss your case. A lawyer can help you understand your legal position, who to sue and potentially help you establish an estimate of how much your case is worth.
Your lawyer will then proceed to investigate your case. In doing so, they will seek medical reports and work to establish liability for your illness.
Once your lawyer has built the strongest case possible, they will move to negotiate with the party at fault to seek compensation for you. If an agreement can be reached at this point, then your case will be settled and your lawyer will talk you through what's involved in recovering your settlement check.
