Mesothelioma treatment can be costly, but necessary for you and your family. Mesothelioma, especially in its late stages, can act swiftly on your body. If you are suffering from mesothelioma, you need the highest-quality medical care to help you through this process.
At The Throneberry Law Group, our attorneys investigate the root cause of your mesothelioma and take swift legal action to get you the compensation you need to pay for your medical care. Many companies have exposed their employees to asbestos for decades, despite knowing and understanding the health risks involved. This recklessness and neglect may be to blame for your mesothelioma diagnosis, which is why we fight for you to receive the treatment you deserve, at the expense of the party responsible for your asbestos exposure.The Last Thing You Should Worry About is Finances
When we represent your mesothelioma claim, we seek damages from a variety of parties involved in your asbestos exposure — including employers, manufacturers, and other liable corporations. We passionately fight for compensation to cover your current and future medical bills, lost wages, and emotional pain and suffering. We can also assist you in pursuing Social Security, insurance payments, or workers' compensation.
Should you or your loved one pass away during litigation, we also work to secure a financial recovery for the victim’s family. Our goal is to eliminate the financial worry associated with mesothelioma, so you can focus on your health and recovery. Our service starts with a free consultation, and you do not pay at all unless we secure compensation for your suffering.Common Misconceptions About Asbestos
Many people resist pursuing mesothelioma lawsuits because they incorrectly think that it will take too long to receive compensation. While the trial process can take a great deal of time, many mesothelioma lawsuits end in settlements within 90 days after the action is commenced. In some situations, there are already trust funds established to provide compensation to mesothelioma victims.
Another misconception is that companies that have since gone out of business are unable to provide compensation for their wrongdoing. If the company reponsible for your asbestos exposure has been sold, there are often requirements that the purchasing company must take over future or pending lawsuits. If the company responsible for your asbestos exposure has gone bankrupt, it is likely that it was required to establish an asbestos trust fund to provide compensation to victims such as yourself.Important Mesothelioma Timeline
Mesothelioma is classified as a rare medical condition, but there are still several decades’ worth of lawsuit relating to the substance. This timeline includes the following:
- Between 1963 to 1965. During this period, medical professionals were still establishing that frequent or prolonged exposure to asbestos greatly increased a person’s chances of being diagnosed with mesothelioma.
- 1965. In this year, the American Law Institute of the Restatement of the Law of Torts published a law that any party that sells any product in a defective condition unreasonably dangerous to the user or consumer or to their property is liable for the harm caused by that product.
- 1969 to present. During this period, the number of mesothelioma and asbestos exposure lawsuits have more than tripled.
