Mesothelioma Attorney in Texas
A mesothelioma diagnosis —or death related to this disease —often comes with a sense of betrayal. That’s because, unlike cases such as car accidents, which occur instantly, it takes decades of asbestos exposure to develop mesothelioma.
This means that, for decades, you or a loved one was exposed to asbestos without their knowledge. Nine times out of ten, it’s usually because someone put profits over human lives. It might have been a landlord, employer, or even a product manufacturer.
That’s where a Texas mesothelioma lawyer from Morgan and Morgan comes in to establish the truth and hold the at-fault parties accountable. Do not fight this battle alone when you can hire an attorney from America’s largest injury firm, Morgan and Morgan, to represent you.

What Does a Mesothelioma Attorney Do?
A mesothelioma attorney handles cases related to mesothelioma and asbestos exposure. Their role includes investigating the source of asbestos exposure, gathering evidence, filing claims against responsible parties, negotiating settlements, and representing clients in court if necessary. They also guide clients through the legal process, issue professional advice on their legal rights and options, and strive to secure the compensation their clients need and deserve.
Can a Mesothelioma Lawyer Help if I Lost a Loved One to the Disease?
Yes, such a case would fall under the umbrella of wrongful death, that is, if the asbestos exposure that led to the mesothelioma diagnosis occurred due to someone’s actions or inactions.
Such a lawsuit seeks compensation for medical expenses, funeral costs, loss of income, and emotional distress experienced due to the loss of a loved one, among other case-specific damages.
What Is the Average Settlement for a Mesothelioma Claim?
The average settlement for a mesothelioma claim can vary widely and on a case-by-case basis. That said, common factors influencing the amount include the severity of the illness, costs of medical treatment, lost wages, and insurance limits. In most cases, settlements can range from a few hundred thousand dollars to several million dollars.
How Soon Should I Contact a Lawyer?
It's advisable to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after a mesothelioma diagnosis or the death of a loved one due to this disease. Mesothelioma cases are time-sensitive due to statutes of limitations, which set deadlines for filing a lawsuit. In Texas, for example, it’s two years from the date of diagnosis of death. If you file a claim outside this window, you’ll lose your right to recover compensation.
Can I Pursue Compensation Without an Attorney?
You can, but it's generally not recommended. Keep in mind that mesothelioma cases are usually complex and usually require detailed legal and medical knowledge. An experienced attorney, particularly one from Morgan and Morgan, can utilize the law firm’s powerful legal resources to take on any defendant on your behalf.
How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Texas Mesothelioma Lawyer?
