Tips for Veterans: How to Choose a Mesothelioma Lawyer

Mesothelioma is a rare cancer of the mesothelium. It is caused exclusively by exposure to asbestos. Years ago, asbestos was used heavily in certain types of construction materials. Workers were often exposed to asbestos fibers when these materials were manufactured, as well as when they were later used in construction. When disturbed, asbestos fibers become airborne and can be inhaled where they may then become imbedded in the mesothelioma – generally around the lungs. These embedded fibers cause a chain reaction of health maladies than can often lead to the development of cancer.

One of the primary industries affected by asbestos exposure is the armed forces, particularly the Navy. This is because materials containing asbestos were often used to build Naval ships. As a result, Navy shipyards as well as the ships themselves have become common places for service men and women to be exposed to deadly asbestos fibers. This is especially true for anyone responsible for the construction, maintenance, or repair of Navy ships, as well as anyone who regularly worked in the ships’ engine rooms. In addition, since these fibers could become lodged in a worker’s clothing and carried home, workers’ family members were also commonly exposed.

Our veterans and their families unknowingly inhaled these fibers – sometimes for a number of years. After decades, asbestos exposure symptoms started to emerge and diagnoses were made. Since these veterans became sick while on the job and through no fault of their own it is often possible for a qualified attorney to obtain compensation for cancer patients from asbestos manufacturers. Here are some tips on how to choose a mesothelioma lawyer:

•Look for an attorney with experience. These cases can be quite complex, and it is best to use an attorney who has several years of experience under his or her belt.

•Look for specific asbestos litigation experience. Asbestos cases are not like other types of cases and require an attorney who is exceedingly knowledgeable about this particular area of the law.

•Look for an attorney from a well respected law firm. An attorney who works with one of these firms will have more resources at his or her disposal to assist with your case.

•Make sure the attorney you hire is the attorney you’ll actually be working with. It is common practice for asbestos litigation firms to take on cases that they later refer out to a different law firm entirely. Before you hire an attorney, be sure to confirm that he or she will be the one who works with you through the entire case.
