Some Crucial Questions to Ask a Mesothelioma Lawyer Before Hiring Them

If you or someone you care about was recently diagnosed with mesothelioma, it is best that you retain a lawyer to help you with your compensation claim. When you work with a mesothelioma attorney, you can expect them to conduct thorough investigations and handle all the legal aspects of your case on your behalf. You can expect your attorney to do their best to ensure you recover fair compensation. That is why it is crucial that you hire a skilled attorney who has, among other things, the resources needed to help them gather information and evidence about the asbestos exposure that led to the diagnosis. To ensure you are hiring the best mesothelioma lawyer, consider asking the lawyers you schedule an initial consultation with, among many others, the following questions;

How long have you been representing mesothelioma patients and families of mesothelioma victims?

Even a lawyer who is new to handling mesothelioma cases may be able to assist you. However, the truth is that mesothelioma lawyers and firms that have been representing mesothelioma patients and families of mesothelioma patients for years or decades are in a better position to give your case the highest likelihood of success. Experienced attorneys understand complex laws. They know which evidence they need to gather to win a case and how to negotiate.

What is your success rate?

Just because a mesothelioma lawyer has been successful in other cases does not automatically mean they will be successful in your case. However, an attorney who has successfully managed to help many clients recover good amounts of money can give you peace of mind and confidence. You can be confident that such an attorney will dedicatedly fight for the compensation you deserve.

Do you litigate cases in court?

Most mesothelioma cases are settled before they make it to trial. However, if, for example, the defendant refuses to acknowledge liability, your case might need to proceed to trial. If that happens, you will want to have an attorney by your side who is experienced in litigating mesothelioma cases in court.

What resources do you have to help collect information and evidence about my case?

A mesothelioma case requires a thorough investigation to understand how, when, and where asbestos exposure occurred. A mesothelioma case requires strong evidence. Therefore, you need to know if the attorney you are considering hiring has enough resources to, for example, help them access databases of evidence and different locations.

What sort of companies am I likely to be making claims against?

A mesothelioma attorney may not be able to estimate the exact amount of compensation you will recover in your case. But they should be able to tell you which companies you will likely be making claims against.
