  • How a Philadelphia Mesothelioma Attorney Can Help

    Our mesothelioma attorneys may take the following steps in handling your case:

    Obtain and Evaluate All Available Medical Evidence: Your attorney will obtain all the necessary medical records to properly document that your loved one has developed an asbestos-related illness. Your attorney may also work with a medical expert to prepare a detailed report describing your loved one’s medical condition and how it is linked to his or her asbestos exposure.

    Determine Which Asbestos Companies Can Be Held Accountable: Our attorneys can review and evaluate your loved one’s work history and establish which companies’ asbestos products contributed to your loved one’s illness. For example, if your husband was an employee at the Philadelphia Navy Yard, he may have been exposed to asbestos fibers contained in pipe installation, gaskets, and cement. Our attorneys can research the types of asbestos products used at the job site and determine how those companies can be held accountable.

    Help Find Medical Treatment: Our attorneys have been handling mesothelioma cases for years. Through the course of our work, we have established relationships with leading doctors and surgeons and have even helped some patients find clinical trials.

    File a Claim with an Asbestos Trust: Although the majority of asbestos companies have gone out of business because asbestos is now rarely used, many have established trust funds to compensate asbestos victims and their families. In fact, companies that manufactured, distributed and sold asbestos have set aside more than $20 billion in these funds. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, our attorneys may be able to file claims with the appropriate asbestos trusts.

    File a Lawsuit: If the asbestos exposure in your case is linked to a company that has not created a trust fund, our attorneys may file a lawsuit. Because there are time limits in which a mesothelioma lawsuit may be filed in Pennsylvania, it is important that you contact us as soon as possible after receiving a diagnosis.

    Engage in Negotiations: To avoid the expense and uncertainty of a jury trial, many asbestos lawsuits settle before going to trial. If a settlement offer is received in your case, your attorney can help determine if it provides you and your family with an appropriate amount of compensation.

    Litigate Your Claim: If these settlement negotiations fail to produce an acceptable settlement offer, our attorneys will prepare your case for trial.

  • Types of Compensation Available in a Mesothelioma Claim

    A person diagnosed with mesothelioma may be able to receive compensation for:

    • Medical expenses
    • Lost income
    • Pain and suffering
    • Punitive damages

    Wrongful Death Claims

    If your spouse or parent died as a result of exposure to asbestos, our attorneys may be able to file a claim for wrongful death benefits. These benefits may include compensation for medical bills, funeral expenses and loss of support. Our attorneys also represent individuals, such as the spouses and children of asbestos employees, who developed illnesses because of second-hand exposure to asbestos.

  • Asbestos Exposure in Philadelphia

    Many of the companies that manufactured asbestos products knew for decades that asbestos was dangerous, yet failed to protect their workers.

    • Philadelphia Electric Company
    • Philadelphia Naval Shipyard
    • Philadelphia School System
    • Sunoco (formerly South Philadelphia refinery)
    • U.S. Steel

    At these job sites, workers in the following trades or occupations may have been exposed to asbestos:

    • Auto mechanics

    • Boilermakers
    • Carpenters
    • Cement plant employees
