How Our Capital District Mesothelioma Lawyers Can Take the Burden Off You
Our law firm’s primary practice area is asbestos litigation and product liability. Asbestos-related diseases such as mesothelioma and lung cancer can develop decades after you were exposed to asbestos.
Tracing your history of exposure requires a thorough investigation to pinpoint which company — or companies — manufactured the asbestos products to which you were exposed.
Here’s what the skilled Capital District mesothelioma lawyers at Belluck & Fox will do when you choose to work with us:
- To start your case, we’ll first consult with you at no charge and at a place that’s most convenient for you: in your home, at a health care facility, or even over the phone.
- We’ll ask for information about your work history and time you spent in the military to begin our investigation into how you were exposed to asbestos.
- We’ll also discuss your diagnosis and your treatment plans. We’ll gather medical records and may bring in medical experts to consult on your case.
- We’ll be thorough. We may track down former coworkers and military colleagues to learn what they remember about using products containing asbestos. We also may gather relevant blueprints of buildings, shipyards or ships where you worked.
- Once we determine which asbestos companies should be held responsible, we’ll use the extensive documentation we have gathered to make a strong claim for maximum compensation. This may involve filing an asbestos lawsuit and/or filing claims from asbestos bankruptcy funds.
- Most asbestos companies prefer to avoid going to trial and would rather settle your claim before it reaches a judge and jury. But if your case does go to court, our respected trial attorneys will be prepared and ready to fight. There’s also no need to worry about traveling to court to testify. Our attorneys always put our clients’ health needs first and will advocate strongly on your behalf.
Clients often have questions about how long an asbestos lawsuit takes. Although it does take time to build a strong case, our extensive experience in this field enables us to work as efficiently as possible. In addition, your attorney may ask the court to resolve your claim within one year because of the severity of your illness.

Legal Services – Mesothelioma
Asbestos is the only known cause of pleural mesothelioma, a devastating cancer that affects the tissue lining the lungs and chest cavity.
Companies that manufactured and sold asbestos products for decades understood these health hazards but failed to warn workers or consumers.
As your Capital District lawyer investigates your claim, he or she will review your work history or military experience to identify where and when you were exposed to asbestos.
Belluck & Fox Capital District legal services will pinpoint which company or companies were responsible for manufacturing the product(s) that caused your cancer. Depending on what we uncover, you may be entitled to compensation through a variety of resources:
- Asbestos bankruptcy funds, which have been established by companies that have filed for bankruptcy or gone out of business.
- Mesothelioma lawsuits, which can be filed against companies that are still in business.
In addition to compensation from the party or parties responsible for your asbestos exposure, you may be eligible for benefits that could help cover your treatment costs and other expenses. Your mesothelioma attorney can determine whether you are eligible for the following:
Social Security Disability Benefits
Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Mesothelioma treatments can cost patients and their loved ones hundreds of thousands of dollars. To get the compensation you deserve, it’s key to put your trust in an experienced mesothelioma lawyer who will be extremely thorough in identifying all your options.
At Belluck & Fox, our legal team has been recognized as some of America’s top trial lawyers by Super Lawyers, Best Lawyers and Martindale-Hubbell. More important to us, however, is the high praise of our former clients, who often recommend us to family and friends:

“I would like to say that everyone at Belluck & Fox is absolutely wonderful and that the culture of your company must come from the top. Our family appreciates all that you have done for us.” – former client
