  • How a Mesothelioma Attorney Can Help

    mesothelioma attorney may take the following steps to ensure that you receive compensation for your injuries:

    Gather Necessary Medical Evidence: Your attorney will collect diagnostic medical reports from the facilities where you were treated. The only known cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos; however, in cases alleging other injuries, such as lung cancer, a medical expert can evaluate your medical records to determine whether your disease was caused by asbestos exposure. In addition, your attorney may work with the medical expert to evaluate the costs associated with necessary, future medical treatments.

    Perform a Work History Investigation: Your mesothelioma attorney will help identify when and where you were exposed to asbestos. For cases involving exposure to asbestos at work, your attorney will review your work history and may request employment and union records to demonstrate that you were exposed to asbestos in the workplace.

    Identify Potential Recovery From Asbestos Trusts: Many asbestos manufacturers have established trusts to compensate mesothelioma victims. If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma and worked for a company that has established such a trust, your attorney may file a claim with the trustees seeking compensation for your injuries.

    File a Lawsuit: If your asbestos exposure is linked to a company that has not established a trust, your attorney may file a personal injury lawsuit against the companies that manufactured, distributed, or installed the asbestos. Many companies that manufactured or distributed asbestos have gone out of business or have been acquired by other corporations. Your attorney will research the corporate history of the asbestos companies involved in your case to ensure that the proper parties are held accountable.

    Litigate Your Claim and Evaluate Settlement Offers: At this stage in the asbestos claims process, your attorney may request documents and employment records from the companies that caused you harm, and conduct depositions of medical experts who have knowledge of your condition. Many mesothelioma cases settle before trial. If a settlement offer is made, your attorney will review the offer and help you determine if it is an appropriate amount of compensation for the injuries you have suffered. If the settlement offer is not acceptable, your attorney may try the case before a judge and jury. Our St. Petersburg mesothelioma attorneys are experienced litigators who have developed an impressive track record of success in the courtroom. The attorneys in our St. Petersburg office have the resources and capabilities needed to take your case to trial, if necessary.

  • Damages Available in a Mesothelioma Claim

    A person diagnosed with mesothelioma may be entitled to recover compensation for the following:

    • Medical expenses
    • Lost wages
    • Lifecare expenses
    • Physical pain and emotional suffering
    • Lost enjoyment of life
    • Travel expenses for medical treatments

    If your spouse or parent died as a result of mesothelioma, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim. In a wrongful death claim, compensation for lost future earnings, loss of companionship and loss of parental guidance may be available.

  • Exposure to Asbestos in St. Petersburg

    Asbestos was used in many different industries throughout Florida. Workers’ families may also have been exposed to asbestos from clothes that were worn at worksites that contained asbestos. In cases of neighborhood exposure, people who lived or worked near asbestos-related industries may have unknowingly been exposed to asbestos and developed mesothelioma, lung cancer, or other diseases as a result.

    Employees in Florida may have been exposed to asbestos at oil refineries, natural gas plants, chemical plants, power plants, and construction sites. This list is by no means exhaustive. Asbestos was used extensively in numerous industries and work locations throughout Florida. In addition, many homes and office buildings in the St. Petersburg area were originally constructed with asbestos, the disturbance of which may have put construction and demolition workers at risk for mesothelioma and other asbestos-related illnesses.
