At Simmons Hanly Conroy, your integrated team of mesothelioma attorneys will handle your case on all levels, investigating all possible sources of recovery and taking legal action when possible. Our team handles all aspects of filing a mesothelioma lawsuit, taking the burden off of you and your family.
Your mesothelioma attorneys will research any companies that may have manufactured asbestos-containing products you used on the job or may have been exposed to at home. When appropriate, we will file legal claims for you with the trusts of those asbestos companies that filed bankruptcy.
Depending on the unique details of your asbestos case, your lawyer may take the following route(s) to financial compensation.
Personal Injury Lawsuits
If you’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease (like asbestosis or lung cancer), you may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit against the company that manufactured the product that exposed you to asbestos.
Wrongful Death Lawsuits
If your family member was diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos-related illness and has since passed away, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit on their behalf against the manufacturer of the asbestos-containing product your loved one was exposed to.
Asbestos Trust Fund Claims
If a company that manufactured asbestos products tried to declare bankruptcy in the past, they may have been ordered by the courts to set aside money in a trust fund to compensate current and future victims of asbestos exposure to their products. These asbestos trust funds are currently believed to contain an estimated $30 billion.
A mesothelioma attorney can help you file a claim to receive compensation from an asbestos trust fund established by one of these bankrupt companies.
If you’re a veteran of any branch of the U.S. military and diagnosed with mesothelioma, you may be eligible to receive VA benefits. Our VA-accredited attorneys can help you navigate the VA claims process and access any benefits to which you may be entitled.
