How Do Mesothelioma Lawyers Help Patients?

Couple speaking with a doctor

You’ve seen the commercials. You’ve read the ads. But still, you might be wondering, what exactly do mesothelioma lawyers do for patients and their families? 

Being diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease comes with a heavy financial burden. Treating mesothelioma and other conditions can end up costing hundreds of thousands of dollars. No one deserves the pain and suffering these diseases cause. Ward Black Law serves as a powerful voice for people who were injured due to the negligence of manufacturers and distributors of asbestos products, and in some cases, a former employer.

Some people know where their exposure to asbestos occurred. Others may not be aware that they were ever around asbestos. This is where our expertise with asbestos cases in North Carolina comes into play. Ward Black Law has 30 years of experience handling asbestos disease claims. We know exactly what we need to do to make sure you are fairly compensated.

Finding Fault

Far too many citizens of North Carolina have been exposed to asbestos in their workplaces or at home. Often, the first step to pursuing compensation begins with identifying all potential parties responsible for causing exposure to asbestos. This may include the company you worked for, but there are almost always multiple entities responsible for your exposure, including the manufacturers and distributors of asbestos. It is our job to hold the responsible parties accountable for what you are going through.

Gathering the Proof You Need 

The road to diagnosis looks different for every patient. Because the symptoms of mesothelioma and other asbestos diseases can take years to fully develop, evaluating medical records can provide the proof needed to get compensated. 

You need a solid medical case whether you have mesothelioma, lung cancer, or other cancers or diseases from asbestos, like asbestosis. Ward Black Law handles this for you. In addition to medical records, we will search for company records that prove you were around asbestos at a certain time and place.

Ward Black Law has proof of the asbestos products that were at hundreds of North Carolina job sites. After representing more than 1,000 clients with asbestos diseases over the past 30 years, we are confident our resources and experience will add value to any claims you may have.

Investigating Avenues for Compensation 

Many people wonder if they’ll need to sue in order to get compensation for mesothelioma or asbestos cancers. In fact, there are sources of settlement funds for many mesothelioma victims that do not require a suit. It’s important to identify all sources of compensation for your particular situation. Those sources can include pursuing workers’ compensation benefits, claims against trusts set up for certain asbestos manufacturers and distributors, and many additional sources.  

Investigating Avenues for Compensation 

Perhaps the biggest question on your mind is, “Can I even afford a mesothelioma lawyer?” We’re pleased to tell you the answer is yes. Ward Black Law collects nothing up front for these types of cases. This means no money comes out of your pocket, and we don’t get paid until you do. You owe us nothing if we are unable to get compensation for you.
