How can an attorney help if I was diagnosed with mesothelioma?

While it is clear how you got mesothelioma — asbestos — it is not clear where you came into contact with the mineral. Hiring an attorney is important to ensure that you will be pursuing compensation from all available sources, but also to collect the evidence necessary to prove your claim. Because mesothelioma is only diagnosed decades after the initial exposure to asbestos, many people do not recall exactly where they were exposed to the mineral. An experienced attorney will investigate your work history, and make a case on your behalf so you can focus on living the most comfortable life possible while they handle your lawsuit.
