Selecting a Mesothelioma or Asbestos Attorney
Finding A Mesothelioma or Asbestos Attorney To Meet Your Needs
When you or a loved one has been diagnosed with an asbestos-related injury such as mesothelioma, it may be the first time you have ever considered hiring an attorney. Choosing the right mesothelioma and asbestos attorney can give you peace of mind during the difficult times of medical treatments, bills and other stressful events.
Attorneys who handle asbestos claims vary widely in their approaches. Many asbestos attorneys will offer an initial consultation after which they will be able to evaluate the strength of a case. While this prescreening is often done over the phone, an in-person consult is important and useful as it will enable you to get to know the attorney, the firm, the types of resources the firm has and how it is likely to handle your asbestos-related disease case.
Key Points To Consider When Choosing a Mesothelioma or Asbestos Attorney
Will the firm handle all aspects of your case? It is important to ensure that your prospective attorney will actually file your case and not simply send it off to some other law firm. At Brayton Purcell LLP, we will keep your case, work up your case, and handle any settlement or litigation. We are NOT a referral firm like many of the mesothelioma ad firms you see on TV.
Get the information you desire: An initial consultation with a prospective attorney should be informative — ask frank questions.
Seek legal advice as soon as possible: Contacting an attorney as soon as you have been diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease or when you know that you have been exposed to asbestos can help preserve a wide range of legal options.
Does the firm have experience with these types of cases? Make sure your prospective attorney has experience in taking asbestos or mesothelioma cases to trial.
Does the firm have the proper resources? Your prospective attorney should have the information and resources needed to help you prove your asbestos claim.
