Choosing a Mesothelioma Attorney

Posted by Michael Throneberry | Apr 02, 2022

Mesothelioma is a rare but fatal type of cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Sadly, many people who get diagnosed with mesothelioma are not financially prepared for the costs of treatments and procedures required to fight the disease. Those battling Mesothelioma have the option of recovering compensation.

Regardless of whether it is a claim against an asbestos trust fund or an asbestos company, you need a mesothelioma attorney to ensure you recover the compensation you deserve. When it comes to choosing a mesothelioma attorney to hire, the following tips might help you choose the right attorney.

How to Choose the Right Mesothelioma Attorney

When searching for an attorney to help you with your mesothelioma case, there are several things to look for. The following are two of the main things to look for in a mesothelioma attorney.


It is vital that you determine whether an attorney has experience handling cases involving asbestos exposure and mesothelioma. Among other things, an attorney experienced in dealing with asbestos exposure and mesothelioma cases understands the complex information involved in such cases. For example, an experienced mesothelioma attorney understands the illness well enough to know how to communicate with experts about the possible cause and the impact of the disease. Also, an attorney with experience dealing with cases involving asbestos exposure and mesothelioma knows about high-risk mesothelioma industries and their occupational hazards.

When it comes to experience, it is also vital that you consider whether an attorney has any experience trying asbestos and mesothelioma cases in court. Sometimes, asbestos and mesothelioma cases end up in court, so it would be best that you work with an attorney experienced in trying such cases in court.  

Proven Results

It is usually good to work with a law firm that has successfully helped other plaintiffs recover compensation. Indeed, every case is unique, and just because a law firm has been able to help others recover compensation is not a guarantee that you will recover compensation. However, working with a mesothelioma attorney with proven results increases your chances of recovering compensation.

You can easily learn about an attorney's reputation and whether an attorney has any proven results by reading testimonials from clients. Usually, attorneys have a few testimonials from clients on their websites.

Questions to Ask a Mesothelioma Attorney

After narrowing down your search, it is vital that you schedule an initial consultation with an attorney before deciding whether to hire them to help you with your mesothelioma case. Fortunately, most mesothelioma lawyers offer a free initial consultation. During your consultation with a mesothelioma attorney, ensure you ask as many questions as possible. The following are some of the questions to ask a mesothelioma attorney during an initial consultation;

  • Do I have a valid case?
  • What are your charges, and how are costs handled?
  • Will you handle my case personally?
  • What does the process involve?
  • If necessary, can you handle my appeal?
